I am sure many of you communicate with your children via text message. My DH and I realized a few years ago, the boys would answer a text, long before they would answer their phones. I am sure if you are out with your buddies, the last thing you want to do is have your Mama being a nagamuffin on the phone!
Cameron has a quick smile and a huge heart. A couple of weeks ago, he was on a little adventure. He and his buddy Joe were on a road trip. Driving from Seattle to LA, with a few stops along the way. First stop, Papa and Grama Ruthie's house.
About a week into their trip, I received a picture text from Cameron. He found a book in a restaurant parking lot, and thought I might like it.
Yesterday, it arrived in the mail! A 1970 edition of Better Homes and Gardens Sewing Book. A wonderfully illustrated book with lots of practical advise about sewing. Some of you learned to sew from this manual. It is in a 3 ring binder, which is such a good idea! Why don't they do that anymore? The section on Sewing for the Home, has window treatments, how to make a slip cover for your sofa, a bed skirt-even a canopy. Not one mention of a quilt, table runner, wall hanging, all of the things we are sewing today. That reminds me that 1976 was the rebirth of quilting. I feel so lucky to be sewing during a time, when we are doing it because we love it. Not because we have to.
And, that sweet boy of mine, he knows what his Mama likes!
