I should have more faith in myself....


Remember this quilt? I was convinced that I was the only one who liked it. Well..I brought it into work today along with a few others for a group of us to pick out which one we wanted to give to the latest new baby. EVERYONE picked this one - they just loved the colors and how different it was. I must admit - I was totally surprised! Someone asked if I could make it large sized - well...we'll see about that.

Off to Florida tomorrow and am having the usual leaving home blues. What to take? What to leave home. Pack and repack. Less clothes, more art supplies. I truly hate the process, and would simply stay in place if I could.

But Mom and I have planned a day out together - just the two of us - and that will be a treat. Usually we are with brothers and cousins, aunts and uncles. I want a day with mom that I can remember and treasure.

Have a good weekend everyone -

I already told you this was a wonderful and unique quilt! And I should know!!!! LOL ;-)
It IS. It's bold and beautiful and the baby will love all the lines and dots and such.

Have a wonderful day with mom.
Great plan!!!
Is this a fun trip as opposed to a work trip?

Enjoy!!! Yes, lots of art supplies. Bring us what you create while gone.

P.S. If you don't want to pack many art supplies, remember the handy old brown paper bags!

It is a lovely quilt. Isnt it nice when people give you kudos when you are thinking negative about something..? We have to believe in ourselves more. :))
Have a great weekend with family.

It's a beautiful quilt! I'm sure the not pink and blue is part of the reason people love it. Enjoy your time here in Florida! It's a bit cool, but you may not even notice.

kj said...

funny how lack of confidence can steer you wrong...the quilt is indeed beautiful.

i don;t like to pack and travel either, although i do it anyway. hope you and your mother had a grand day of it.

:)

We can never seem to judge our own work! That said, it's hard to believe that you couldn't see what a great quilt this is!
I hope you're having a great time with your Mom in Florida. I also hate packing for trips, but by the time I get to the airport I'm happy to be leaving.
