As fellow-creators, I know you have also all experienced the variety of reactions our creations get. I'm talking real-life here, where some folks get what we do (or at least really appreciate it), some not at all, and most feel very comfortable letting us know what they think of our work. And I'm fine with that. But one of those experiences happened yesterday that gave me such a good chuckle I had to share it.
So I've got this stack of mini-quilts that I've made over the last year, and I was showing them to daughter dear, basically bemoaning the fact that I really didn't know what to do with them all. Well Rachel's hand reached out so quickly when I came to the one I'd just created making the organic straight-line quilting tutorial, which I was totally fine with, and it didn't surprise me one bit, since it was her colors and all. But what did catch me by surprise was that moments later, grandgirl reached out her little hand to grab a favorite of her own! And what gave me such a laugh was that it was the back of the quilt that caught her fancy!
You love what you love, right? And I was more than happy for sweet Lucy to go home with (in her mind) a new dolly quilt, knowing it would be the back that would be most admired. It's all good, don't you think?
