A very very good friend of mine knew just what we needed. Frank has been complaining to everyone about me not making him a lighthouse quilt for his bed. Well, not really his bed, but the bed in his office. His office has lighthouse stuff all over it. He likes them, I guess.
But he has not stopped asking, and now he has resorted to the "shame" method. He tells everyone about how beautifully I quilt and how wonderful all my nice machines are, and how happy he is to be able to live in amongst piles and boxes and shelves of fabrics from all over the world. Arriving daily via the post and UPS even.
Then he tells people about his falling apart China quilt and how I won't make him one of his own.
And he turns pathetic looking eyes to me.
Now, that melts the hearts of everyone in hearing distance.
So Charlene from the Bayou gives me (in front of him, I might add) this beautiful pattern for a lighthouse quilt, and says Happy Anniversary!
LOL. I guess Frank is going to get his lighthouse quilt! We have visited many of the lighthouses so he was all over that pattern when we got home. It even had the Lake Pontchartrain lighthouse we use to see as a kid but now has sunk into the silt at the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain!
And thanks Charlene, I really love the pattern. I have some hand dyes that will be perfect for it. And I plan on getting back into some dyeing myself again. He may have the most beautiful quilt in the world when it all ends with the binding and the label!
I guess she is going to keep me straight, when she visits here she sleeps under that old quilt from China! So I am sure she is going to want to sleep under the NEW lighthouse quilt soon enough.
glen: and that is pretty cool!
