Crafting the perfect family
I visited a quilting show recently, with beautiful, painstakingly crafted bed covers hung on the walls. But among the more modest displays, I discovered these three individuals.
It’s hard to craft a perfect family, but this genius sewer came close. The mother is singing, the father is smiling, and the infant is tucked in safe and secure between them. I like that.
Think of what a better place it would be if we all
–the whole world—had cookies and milk
about three o’clock every afternoon
and then lay down on our blankets
for a nap.
Quilters have amazing talent. I was thinking about family today. Sometimes you want to choose different people for your family, but there’s something in being blood relatives that is comforting despite the occasionally rocky relationships.
