Fielke, Lindenbergh, Gritz....Birds of a feather flock together they say!
What a whirl of a week, WOW! Wednesday whizzing by....weird: Where, When, What, Why, and How?
Are you asking yourself, "What the heck, Emily?".....I am giggling as I write this post because where my mind began with its contents is not where it has taken me! How many people can relate to this?
Today is the countdown of my Wilderness Wednesdays where I enjoy the beauty of redtail hawks, adventures of mud and snow and the wish to see a family of Mustangs.....4 to go until my flight pattern heads due Northwest. Above I CELEEBRATE mom's current work in motion....Her eagle! Did you spy the skulls in the background fabric? Yep, that is my mom....appears so unassuming and demure on her exterior but her soul has a spice that I cannot get enough of! She and I had so much fun enjoying Sarah Fielke's most recent book while she was visiting me and this little dolly quilt, Silhouette, is so beautiful and yet so simple. Amazing! I was playing with ideas while hiking today with Porsche using this Sarah pattern and will see what comes of the creative game in my mind........
but for now, I end this post with a silly ditty from Noah who is also CELEBRATING flying this week. He has chosen to do a report on Charles Lindenbergh and with all of his little red-headed spice, he asked me, "Mom, can I write, 'Charles bought his first Jenny bi-plane for 500 SMACKERS?'" Without a pause I laughed and said, "Of course!" May he always be willing to take a chance on putting his individuality out there!
