My Mom thinks I think about quilting all the time. Not true. I also think about 7th grade math and the mistake I made at work last week (and can't do anything about) and what needs to go on the grocery list.
But, I do think about quilting a lot.
That's how I can take this figure 8 off one background and put it on another. And, it's how I came up with a great piano key variation for a border. I got a suggestion to use "Crazy 8" as the name, but I'm thinking about "it takes two to make eight crazy" because this is the work of two quilters and working without a pattern is just "crazy".
But, I also came up with two spanish questions for the kid yesterday...if you can answer either one of these, I'll do dishes for a week. Needless to say, I will not be doing dishes this week.
Yesterday was "good parent's day" at our house, formerly known as "man-mom" day. Rob and Sydney did the cleaning and I supervised while they did the cooking.
Most precious moment was watching Sydney massage olive oil into a raw chicken to bake it. "Gross, gross, gross. Nobody should have to touch that".
Most delicious moment was Rob's home made ice cream, which I believe he was making for the first time.
And, my time was free to work on what I wanted, like the ditch work on this quilt.
And, a variety of other things that make me smile.
I hope your Mother's Day was wonderful, whether you were the Mom or honoring the Mom.
Take care and have a great Monday. Lane
