7 years ago.....

I am in my studio today sewing the final 9 samples together for the next Pieced Hexies book.

I went to cut this fabric and upon opening it I found this.

And I stopped and smiled.

Seven years ago, when they were 15, I hired Paul & Emily to work in my studio for the summer. They wanted ipods and they worked for them.

Paul chose the job of pulling every fabric in my stash and cutting a 5" square from it for my Coloriffic Workshop.

Over the years I have found others like this but it's been awhile.

He is now a college graduate living on his own and loving it in Madison Wisconsin.

Tomorrow we are meeting up with him at the Kane County Flea Market. I plan to give him the biggest hug.

Today I will pin this blue fabric to my design wall and pet it when I walk by.

Always a mom.

Mic, it's always a moment when something like this happens. With me, it's usually a scent or a sound that reminds me of when my kids were younger.

THat is one of those special memories. And thank you for helping teach them the value of working for something.
