I love my mother. We’ve learned how to love each other from far away over these years of travel and living apart. We don’t have a lot of time together so I look forward to the time we do get. Today, she is coming for a week to visit. But this is a visit with a purpose. My mom has skills and expertise that I am excited to tap into when I get the chance. This time we’re thankful for her sewing skills and quilting expertise.
Remember our wedding guestbook quilt? Well, Ryan and I have slowly been working on the building blocks for the quilt top. And the key word here is slowly. I borrowed a sewing machine but at this rate, it’s going to be finished by our 3rd anniversary (yes, by 2017). Since we really don’t want to just take quilt pieces to Australia, my mother generously offered her time and expertise.
I’m looking forward to sewing time, talking time and hang out time with a purpose. It will be good quality time with my mother and hopefully we’ll see quick progress of our quilt top too.
