Weezie,
Are you mashugana, saving all of those little pieces of our clothing? I could understand the National Record Mart sweater logo, I wouldn’t have given that away either, but the others? A golf hankie, a piece of your mother’s silk blouse, the crème suit we bought for her to wear to her 75th birthday party and even a remnant of your blanket from when you shared your room with Nana? Thank God, you have finally cleaned out that box so that this will be the last we see of them.

Yet, I have to hand it to you; it is amazing how you continue to find ways to make beautiful meaningful quilts. And now as if sewing wasn’t good enough, you are writing for the Chronicle no less? Who could have predicted that? You have accomplished so much more that we ever expected. For sure, you should have been a Rebbetzin.

Love from Mom too,
Mr. Velvet

    I really love the Autobiography of a Quilt series. I think these posts really put the “meaning” into quilts with meaning.

    And, of course, I especially love Nana and Pupup. Sad they are gone, but happy that our memories of them (and their voices) live on.
