A BIG box and a smaller package
First, the smaller package. Remember when Theri showed a bunch of blocks and asked which ones she should send to Mom? Hmm... Guess I should have answered because all of these showed up!
Five of them are complete with the info we are supposed to add. The sixth block says "from your darling daughter" and then "to my marvelous Mom". Which one is definitely going in the quilt? Oh, who can choose? Maybe all of them!
I think I told you awhile back that I had promised Theri that we would come to Texas in November for the Houston Quilt Show. My side of the family is notorious for being procrastinators and I have put her off for a long time with "maybe next year". One of the first things I did when I found out that we were losing my brother to cancer was to call Theri and start making plans.
One of my concerns was that this show is SO huge. I have COPD and I wondered about rest areas and how to drag packages around. Yep! Putting $$$ away for this adventure. When Theri and I were at Mary Jo's Cloth Store, I told her of seeing a shopper with a walker with a built-in seat the first day I had been there. No, I don't need a walker, but the seat looked pretty handy!
A couple of weeks ago, Theri called and said that a box was coming--but she wouldn't say what!
Look what showed up:
Yeah, no make-up, laundry on a chair (halfway to the linen closet), but the UPS truck was outside! (And yes, the framed Santa cross stitch w/beading is still on the wall because it cost so much to have it framed this last December that I am going to enjoy it for awhile yet!)
Is this a perfect fit? Did you
see the size of the bag? Wow,
we can fill it and push it around
She found it at Amazon and it
is called StylishALL. It can also double as
a luggage rack...
Don't I have a wonderful daughter?
