Today Johnny and I have been married 36 years. I am not sure where all the time has gone but we have had a very event filled and happy life together. We have a lot in common but we both have other interests that give us our space. I think that is what makes it work. He shared a cartoon the other day that said marriage was hollering "what" from one room to the next and that is definitely us these days.
Today is also design wall Monday and I have something new on the wall. I know I said I wasn't going to start anything new just for the sake of starting something. Anything new had to have a purpose, like the Winnie the Pooh baby quilt, but I fell off the wagon. Thursday night I was looking through some magazines making sure I really needed to hang on to them when I came across one I had been saving. June 2015 American Patchwork had a pattern that I liked called 30 Something. Of course I started cutting that night. My mother always said if you start something on Friday you will never finish it so since this was a Thursday night I was good to go. Judging all my UFO's I must have started a bunch of stuff on Fridays.
Speaking of quilting, last night I made the comment that I get lonely out in the quilt shack when I'm quilting and Johnny says "do you want me to come out and sing to you?" This is the kind of thing that has kept us going 36 years. Oh and he can sing unlike me. He once said "I used to wish I could sing now I wish you could" I think at the time we were on a painting project and my trying to sing got me out of it. Many happy memories.
Until later, happy stitching.
