We've been all over sorta. Babes and I went to my sister's in Columbia SC last week. It was splendid. A wholotta sitting on her porch with embroidery and baby and sister and coffee and just chatting then finding ourselves in our pajamas still at 1pm then getting dressed only so we don't look like total losers when everyone else comes home. That was great. She said her roses were in bloom for me. She said her Christmas cactus eeked out a bloom for me too. My sister is like that. She knows that blooms happen for people. She and flowers. There's something there. Like she speaks to them and they speak back I think. She was born on the Spring Equinox.
Now we are off again. Headed to my Dad's today in East Tennessee. Meeting my sis again there, this time to begin going through Mom's things. I am actually looking forward to it. From here it feels like lots of good memories and tender, personal love to go through. Might not feel just like that once I am there, but I am hopeful. As my Aunt Beth (Mom's only sister) instructed me in her handwritten card this week, mingle laughter with tears. And we will. And likely wine too. (That's what she meant by that right?)
I want to thank everyone for the print orders! Wow, thank you, so so so much. You are just awesome and supportive and I don't know how to thank you. It's been a great success which makes me feel so good. You can't even sew anything with this art and you still want it! Wow. Thank you. I wasn't sure how many to have printed of each and just settled on 100 editions per print. It appears to have been about the right number as we still have a bit left of each. So there is still some early gift buying potential for the holidays if you wish!
Have a great weekend. Lots of love! xoxoAnna
