childhood passions



Picking just one passion is hard. I thought and thought then I remember the quilt my mom made for me when I graduated from highschool. It's the perfect representation of things I loved. It is a beautiful hand-crafted piece that tells the story of me - of the things brought me joy: sunbathing, camping, my green hightops, Autumn, iceskating, pottery, chocolate anything, my dog (Beau), my kitty (Matisse), painting, weaving, penpals, photography, and Christmas baking. Yep that about sums me up. In some form or another these things still bring me happiness.

This quilt is on the bed my little niece sleeps in at my parents house. thanks Mom
