Congratulations to Teri for suggesting the perfect name for my Schnibbles I.S.T.H. quilt top. Here is my "I'm So Totally Happy " quilt.
So many wonderful and creative names were suggested! All of them made me pause and wonder, but when Teri's title came across my computer screen, I knew this was the one. Why? Because those close to me know that I am always running around the house saying "I am so happy", day in, day out. I usually add the words, "I can't wipe the smile off my face" too.
I am in such a happy place right now. I have recently retired and am using my newfound time to embrace quilting and blogging, am making new friends in blogland, while having the time to reconnect with friends in my community. My family are so happy that I am happy!
When I finish the quilting and hang the quilt in a special place, it will remind me of this special month of retirement, reconnection, and rejuvenation. Mmm, maybe a title for my next quilt, "the Three R's"?
I emailed Teri for her address and will be sending her off a little pincushion and perhaps a few little surprises.
Thanks so much to Kaaren at The Painted Quilt for suggesting her readers drop by my blog to help name the quilt. I had over 450 people come by to look at my Parade of One page, all thanks to Kaaren's kind words and generosity. Kaaren is a doll, my own little mentor to my silly quilting questions, and such a very special person that I have met in blog land. Thank you, Kaaren.
I am so totally happy!
It's a great day for quilting!
