Tina said, "Just Enjoy It...Life Is Good"

With every interaction, Tina shared a part of herself.
 
Hi Sue,
Nice to meet you too! I'm a huge fan of quilts, though I don't quilt myself. I have some old family treasures that I've tried to trace the origin of, but the only person who would know responded with, "Oh honey, why does THAT matter. Just enjoy it." That would be my maternal grandmother Vivian who had not one of her 207 bones sentimental. I'm seriously sentimental, a first-rate pack-rat, and a history buff. What I'm not is patient enough to be the historian, but blessed with someone on each side of the family who is.
Best of luck during the Challenge, and see you when I make my rounds.
 
Hi Sue,
Thanks for your many visits, and what a nice surprise to see my blog in you sidebar! That's quite the honor and I appreciate it very much.

I'm a knitter, though both my grandmothers made sure I learned ALL the needle crafts. I've gone through "stages" where I've favored some over others...but at this point, knitting wins. It's therapeutic for me, and giving a handmade present that took hours and hours is a true gift of love, as I'm sure you know as a quilter.

I do COLLECT antique quilts. I've also received some awesome ones as baby gifts for my boys and since they're 13 and 16, they're in "suck the air out" storage ;-)

  12. Yes, it was so enjoyable to share our love of knitting and quilting and the stories that went with them. She could relate to just about everyone on just about any subject. A very special trait in a special lady. Good to hear from you Shannon.
