"Too"day is "TOO"sday! Come OOh at my gallery showing of Sharon's quilt art


I begin my TOOsday bright and early and excited to CELEBRATE my sis!  I awoke yesterday morning with a love note from her describing our weekend together in Ohio as "Glorious" and YES it was!  My sister is the epitome of a GOOD WOMAN....her button nose wiggles with her sweet laugh, singing to the children and herself and she is so grounded.  She is a woman who when you are in her presence you feel her heart and oh how much I miss her already! 

May you enjoy your quilt stroll today CELEBRATING Sharon's eye for color and pattern....and I saved her best creations for last so please visit the entire post!








Madonna and Child....
When Sharon touches you, you smile and want to stick out your tongue with joy!



"Auntie, Fill up more balloons...."  Hudson and I have a special bond and I will forever CELEBRATE his spicy nature and as I write I shed tears of love for this sweet family and thank GOD for family and life.  May we always remember how fun water balloons, throwing plastic balls up and down the stairs and reading stories together are!!!!

What will your TOOsday be TOO much of TOOday?

Love, Em

PS....I have to share a gift I received this morning....Clare wrote and invited me to be a part of the Liberated Quilters Web Ring and I am so delighted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

PSS.....My brother Aaron just sent me this sweet photo of Dusty and my brother Ryan...Dusty is healing well and was able to sleep last night and of course having a loved nearby is always fabulous medicine...


And of course I had to label this photo as Christmas Morning because it was my first thought when I received this photo.  I love to use this description liberally when there is that jubilant quiet air as is the moment a small child awakens parents to sneak down and see what Santa graciously gifted.....

Your sister's quilts are just as beautiful and sweet as she is! That baby quilt with appliqué reminds me of toys that we played with while growing up. Thanks a bunch for sharing these cheerful quilts.

Amazing quilts, Sharon! They have the color intensity of a small child at play and yet there's a disciplined boundary for design. Yep, she's a mom!! Thanks for sharing!!

First, good thoughts and prayers for Dusty for continued healing! I guess it might be insult to injury to say that he looks like a ginormous jingle bell, but in a cool dog kinda way of course! Your posting of your sister's work is scrumptious, and I love your entry into the quilt show. Favorite part...the beer fabric!

I have a sister like that too! We can't visit often but she's a joy to be around. Great quilts! It's nice to have someone you can share your love of quilting with. Love your quilt too. It took a couple of looks before I spotted the word 'Joy'. Very fitting!
