I seem to be finding the nicest things lately tucked away for discovery years after I put them in their secret hiding places.
Years ago -- shortly after I got my longarm -- I was going to go on a Quilt Cruise. I paid the deposit and had airline tickets and everything. You had to make a TROPICAL THEME quilt for the quilt contest, and I have shown you that before. It had to be a CERTAIN SIZE and it had to have at least ONE LOG CABIN BLOCK in it.
Let me run and snap a pic to refresh your memory. Can you spot the sand castle, the crab and the turtle?
Just a few weeks before the cruise, SOMETHING came up (as usual) making it impossible for Jerry to go. I wasn't about to go without him, so I cancelled everything, and I lost my deposit. I wasn't too happy about that, as you can imagine.
I decided the jacket was too dumb to wear anywhere else, so I hung it up in the very back of the coat closet NEVER to be seen again, UNTIL TODAY!
I discovered it was chilly outside when we were getting ready to go to town, so I sent back into the house to find a sweater or a hoodie. I was shuffling through all of the "now too big" hoodies when I noticed this jacket way in the back of the closet.
I decided if I was MAKING a quilted jacket right now, that maybe the old jacket I made wasn't that dumb, so I pulled it out of the closet, and I wore it today for the very first time.
Jerry really liked it, and that made it even better!
Have a great week my friends!
