Rockin' with ROBBI....


This morrning is one of those times in my life that I will forever smile when I remember the story.....St. George is a small community and very few places to enjoy a Sunday brunch. IHOP is a favorite of ours and today is why......Frankie is a spunky young server whose squeaky voice forever has us entertained. We request to be in her section each visit and each time she greets us with a giggle and delight..."It just makes my day that you ask for me." She saw us from across the dining room and quickly came over in her skipping sort of way and in newly dyed red hair, "I thought I would be the Little Mermaid this week. I just have to tell you guys....when you come in on Sunday mornings I go home and tell my friends that I have customers that are undercover rock stars...Are you a family of rock stars?" And so I begin this quilt tonight to CELEBRATE a fun story. We laughed and laughed and in the end, Noah decided that Sean is a famous drummer and I am a cowgirl groupie who loves to dress up for the shows. Thank you, Robbi Joy Elkow for the pattern in your marvellous book, Free Expression.

Rock on dudettes!!! Em
