MQG Block in the Box results...

Thursday night I had fun at Charlotte's Modern Quilt Guild.  My girl Emily and our dear organizer Kristen held down the fort here at home.
 Whenever I go to this guild, I feel the friendship of quilters envelop me.  People have such good hearts there and sew great things with great ideas.
Last year we started the "Block in a Box" block exchange.  Thursday night was the grand reveal.  Here are the blocks from my fabrics.  They are on this little design wall since my girl has her project on the big design wall:)  LOL
 Last night Emily and I had a sew in. (all three kids were at a Karate camp...6 to 10pm)
 Happy is me.
  We have both my Janomes set up...We called in dinner and got tons of sewing done.  I finished two baby changing pads and she finished 9 blocks in her project..  Today I have four more changing pads cut out.
The other night I could not sleep.  I was obsessing about things I could not control, forgetting that I was not in charge in this life.
So, at 2 am, I decided to read through some of my mother's poetry books.  In Circle of Love, I found this:

Then It Happened

The moon rolled over
turned out the light
covered itself with
a blanket of night.
 Well, my mother spoke to me that night, as I got such a tickle from the poem, I fell right asleep

I also have to remember that I'm not in control of this life. Love the poem.

Your blocks are something!
Pleases me that you & your E had your sew-in. And your Mom continues to reach out.

I love that poem, such beautiful words. Your mother is definitely near by watching out for you. Your blocks are wonderful, such a great colour combo. It's great to hear about the wonderful people around you.

As always I love your quilts. Glad you are quilting with friends and your daughter-that is so nice. Love the poem too.

I love when you share your mother's poetry and this one might be my favorite! I hope you're enjoying having Emily around! You're in my thoughts often! Hang in there, keep sewing
