Memories

Spring is here. The early flowers are beautiful and are a reminder of what is to come.

Memories pop up on Facebook from time to time. My neighbor showed me two photos that popped up on hers. She has given me permission to share them with you. Years ago, her daughter came to my house to learn to quilt. She was then and still is my favorite student. While it took me weeks to learn the buttons on my Janome 11,000. Abigail learned the buttons and remembered how to use them when told only once. She was amazing. She even learned how to use the embroidery unit.

There was only one problem. She sewed FAST. I moved the slow down button and she would move it back up again when she thought that I wasn’t looking. Her color sense was awesome. What a joy to teach her. She later made costumes for school and can do so many crafts that her Mom has taught her.

Time has flown by fast. Abigail will celebrate her 18th birthday this month. Where did the time go? I know that she will succeed in whatever she wants to do with her life.

Abigail was 10 when she made this quilt. It is a mile a minute quilt. Miss Molly was her quality control inspector. Mr. Max also inspected her quilt but was not available for the picture.

Happy birthday, Abigail.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
