Remember this nice quilt from my Jewel Box Period of the Summer of '08? It has been languishing in a pile of flimsies waiting for the right recipient.
Today at school it was time to work on end-of-year plans. An administrator is leaving after more than fifteen years at the school and an appropriate send-off for her is being organized. A reception or a dinner, it seems. And a gift.
Out of the blue I asked about the budget for the gift. Because, unexpectedly, this quilt came to my mind when this lady was mentioned. I could see her liking it, snuggling under it on a day like today (more rain and even MORE rain Near Philadelphia), and remembering fondly her years at our school. And I like the idea of her snuggling under it. Or having a picnic on it. So I spoke to the right person and offered to tie it and bind it in time for the party.
And I'll be paid the amount of the gift budget! Me, who has never thought she would sell a quilt.
