Good morning all. Terrific Tuesday is here again which means I get to link up with the wonderful MELODY (who recently celebrated a Birthday by the way) for Tuesday's Treasures.
My 'treasure' this week is a couple of little things that I love and inspire me. On a road trip with some friends many, many, moons ago just after I started making quilts we visited a little quilt shop can't tell you where and I was taken by these gorgeous gift cards and just had to buy three (they were very expensive). They featured the art work of "Diane Phalen" who grow up in the Amish district of Lancaster in Pennsylvania. All three cards have gorgeous quilts featured and I just loved them. I very selfishly could not give them away and so popped them in little frames and I have them in my sewing room where looking at them constantly delights me.......but wait there is more! You knew there would be!
My friends and I sat down to have a coffee and our lunch and then my best friend pulled the controversial tin from her bag and placed it in front of me saying "I knew you really liked it". She had popped back when I wasn't looking and bought it for me because she knew I wouldn't. So that little tin has for many years held my quilting cotton, thimble and quilting needles. It also reminds me of a friends kindness.
"Things are just that things and they come and go but special people and memories stay in our hearts forever"
Enjoy your day.
