Shine Your Light, one of the quilts in the “Live Your Brightest Life, A Tribute to Yvonne Porcella hosted by Pokey Bolton” arrived home last night, rolled up, in plastic (to keep it dry in case!), and in just the perfect box with the info sheet with it.
Thank you Pokey, and Thank you Yvonne.
there is something amazingly special about this quilt, to me. In the last few days I’ve had reminders of the events going on in my life at that particular moment of time. I was out of my home 13 hours a day. I had to give up writing a book that I’ve longed to write, and the quilt shop where I worked was in the process of closing. Let’s just say that the physical tiredness, coupled with the heart wrenching decision to Let Go, and the emotional fatigue was off the charts. There is some other stuff that I’ll just hold onto. So to have a quilt like this happen, in a relatively short amount of time….ooooph.
Having the quilt selected to be part of the exhibit buoyed my spirits. Sometime soon it will hang in my sewing room as a reminder to Live my Brightest Life, to pour all of who I am into the quilt making that I get to do, the people I am privileged to teach, and work with in the quilting community.
Speaking of Bright Lights. I’m sharing this link to Lisa Sipe’s Go Fund Me page. She is, without a doubt, a bright light in our quilt community. As you may have heard Lisa lost the lower part of her left leg. She’s not able to work right now, however she’s made major strides (she would love the word play) being able to take her dogs out for a walk on her own. This is huge. At some point down the road she’s going to need a prosthesis…so I’m sure her goal of $25,000 isn’t going to quite meet her needs.
