A Summer Gift

A Summer Gift

This guy made a last minute trip up to see me:

He is 18 next month, a rising high school senior, and my oldest grandchild.

I am so touched that he wanted to come and spend NINE days with his grandmother.

I have not seen my family for two years now, and this grandson is now taller than anyone in his family.

Plus, he is a sweet as a summer day is long.

The Aurifil blog posted an interview with Edyta Sitar, whose work I’ve always admired. I met her when I made my solitary trip to the Houston Quilt Show years ago. She was so gracious and lovely, and I so enjoyed meeting her.

I’ve been really tempted by her house quilt—and there is a scrappy version in this post. Her original one was in the blue fabrics she so loves.

  3. I love this Louisa! What a handsome young man and with such a special heart as well! Enjoy your time together making memories 😊
    Edita is also one of my favourite designers and I have her house quilt hanging. Prominently in my house…one of my favourites. I really enjoyed her tour of her studio as well.
