Yesterday, I was deleting emails at work and stumbled up on an email where I forwarded this post from the day we married.
A year from now, under the new administration, we might not still be able to call ourselves married. But, we had THIS day and we have THIS license and we have THIS memory. And, nobody will ever be able to take that away.
THIS love trumps all hate.
We will hunker down and wait for happier times. Times when people care about one another again, because eventually, love and compassion always win.
Now that the election is over, I'm looking for something to replace the news I was obsessing over (yes, I do plan to stick my head in the sand and pretend it's not happening, alright? so don't mess with that or you might get bit). I'm looking for blogs. If you write a blog and you're not sure if I follow it, please let me know what it is. And, if you have a favorite blog, let me know what that is, too. Short of a recommendation, I'm searching out blogs that have less than a thousand followers and where they're not trying to "sell" me something. I want to read what real people have to say about their real lives. And, while I'm most interested in quilting blogs, I'm also interested in reading about people that can find the funny side of life and tell about it. Uplifting and encouraging people who have a story to tell.
In the meantime, I got all the edge stitching finished (for the second time) on the little snowman quilt.
When I did it the first time, I apparently threaded the machine with new colors of thread but forgot to lift the presser foot and engage the tension around that thread, so I had bumps all along the back and when I pulled the paper that I had used as a backing, those turned into little loops that had to be picked out, then another paper back pinned on and then stitched again. Total PITA, but so worth it. This weekend, I plan to pin baste this quilt and the vintage Dresden Plate I finished not long ago.
And, then I plan to sit for a long spell of very relaxing quilting.
God knows I deserve it.
Everybody have a great Friday and a great weekend. And, please share blog names! Lane
