I've been creating a quilt and working on a pattern all day. It's simple and cute… and will be available free soon.

Thanks to buddy Lisa who sent this to me today….. Once again it is the wisdom of Maya Angelou….

This isn't the whole poem, but just an excerpt.


a youth she's content to leave behind….
a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to
retelling it in her old age….
a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra…
one friend who always makes her laugh… and one who lets her cry…


a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family…
eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems,
and a recipe for a meal,
that will make her guests feel honored…


a feeling of control over her destiny…
how to fall in love without losing herself..

    Morning Pam; how wonderful it is to pop in to your site again. 2 weeks ago hubby & I went down to Townsville for 2 days to support our son who had an appointment to see a spinal surgeon. He was operated on there & then which was a shock to us all. But the opp was a success & we have brought him home to Kuranda to recover the next 4 weeks. Worst part I did not have my daily access to my computer as I did not take it with me. I tuned in today & there you are again been sooooo generous. You have made my day. Love the poem & agree with every word. Cheers Glenda
