Hello cute quilters! Today is the first day of spring and it snowed last night. What the heck? Obviously mother nature wanted the new spring flowers to have a beautiful white backdrop allowing them to really POP and say HELLO SPRING! She's so smart. What better way to get the attention of even the Gloomy-ist Gus, reminding us that warmer weather and brighter skies are headed our way. The signs are everywhere in nature if your willing to take a moment to stop and take them all in.
Life tosses us signs if we pay attention. As I mentioned yesterday I've been in a slump for a few weeks and have been in need of something. Well that something was a reminder of why I started this blogging and quilting journey. This one e-mail put it all in perspective for me. With the permission of sender I'm copy and pasting the exact email. Thank you Turid for allowing me to share your e-mail.
The attached picture of their quilt made with my free Podunk Posy pattern.
This is why I quilt, this is why I shared free patterns. When I say "this" it's not that I could share her picture. It was"This" moment for her, the comfort she felt.
Thank you, Turid for sharing your story and photo. You and your husband are in my thoughts, blessings to you both. This was just the push I needed to get out of my slump.
