Back again!

I’m alive again! (JK) I just went to Utah. You guys knew that right? Well I’m back, after being there for a month. I stayed only with my family, but I got to get together with friends too! It was great to see the Cluffs and the Rodenbergs. I haven’t seen you guys forever! And when I came back, I got to see Yuli! And I hope I get together more than once while she’s here. I really wanted to get together with Courtney and Katie!

I’m working on a quilt right now. All the pieces are hexagons (6-sided pieces), and the pattern is called "Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt". I'm going to make this bed size, so I've still got a long way to go. I'll keep posting pictures of it as I go along!

Well I wish you were still here in boring Utah. We miss you and Tash. I hope you enjoyed yourselves and that the traveling went smoothly, did it? You and Tash are so grown up and great great conversationalists. Thanks for being so nice to Livie and including her and making her feel good. She was acting a little obnoxious cuz she was trying to be older, like you. I think your quilt is amazing! I would love to have the patience and talent for something like that. Instead I waste my time with crosswords and sudoku. You are INCREDIBLE!!!

Emily, I wish I was still in Utah too. Now that I'm home, I keep thinking of all these things I wish I would have done, but didn't think of while I was there. Livie is so easy to have fun with, you don't need to say thank you. She was polite, cute, and very mature. We're addicted to sudoku now too. I'm here to tell you, learning to like to quilt wasn't easy!

Gloria: "skills"! That's so funny! Thanks! I love my quilt

How long does it take to make one hexagon? Ive never actually finished a craft in my life, so I couldn't tell you how long things take. Its really cool. When I was your age I was addicted to "doing" something. I had to be going to my friends house, or to the movies, or shopping, and if none of my friends could do anything, I went outside and roller skated, or played zimzam or did handstands, or walkovers and cartwheels.
So now that you've developed quilting as a part of what you do, Im sure you will be doing it the rest of your life. Enjoy!
