Part of the appeal of the Penny Sampler class was the promise of a merit badge – a little handmade something – for campers that finished the main class project quilt. It was the perfect motivation for my finish.
This week I had a lovely package waiting for me from Rachel, and I won’t lie – I really hoped that one of her scrappy rainbow bursts was tucked in there.
I wish she could see the huge grin that spreads across my face each time I look at it in my sewing space. It’s hard to explain why it resonates with me to the extent that it does – it’s like it whispers urgently, “BE COLORFUL! BE BRIGHT! BE CRAZY!” and I love hearing those words.
So thank you, Rachel. You are awesome, and even though I’m already behind in the Color class, you are speaking to me everyday! (Until I get carted off to the looney bin for hearing voices.)
But they ARE lovely voices…
