Sometimes I Pretend That I Can Quilt


...and then I make something and I'm reminded that its not really my thing.  Sometimes I sing, "I'm trying to be like Kati..." (my sister-in-law "From the Blue Chair" who you surely know if you are a quilter).  I have a Kati-original draped over our couch and I fold it up a different way every day so I can admire different parts of it.  Rest assured I will never make anything bigger than this wall hanging.  And I will never show you the back or disclose how much unpicking I did.
Yay Boston!  I know, I know, another thing "Bostony".  What is this obsession I have with this city?  I'm trying to figure that out myself.  I think I love it because we decided when we were engaged that we wanted to live in a big city for at least a year, and we're doing that.  I love that its an adventure all our own (and all alone) that no one in the family has done before.  I love that it'll always be the symbol of our first frustrating and exciting, occasionally dangerous, busy and expensive life experience! Where else are there at least one hundred ways to get towed!?
And now we finally have pictures of our kids on our wall!

Ah! I'm going to do that with Chicago. And I feel the same way about the big city. I don't want to be here forever, but it's fun while it lasts, right?

I love it! Very cute. Every time I attempt to make clothes I think of you. It's such a frustrating process for me that I've about given up trying. I'm amazed at what you create with thrift store clothing.

Such a cute cityscape! I think you did a great job. It doesn't matter how much unpicking you do, it matters how it turns out in the end. There is no shame in unpicking. There might be shame in not unpicking something you know how to fix.

I love how everything looks on your wall.

I think it looks great Camille! You are a quilter! It will be something special to remind you of your family's time in Boston. It will help you to remember all the wonderful things that happened there.
