Secrets of the travelN quilts blocks- Jenna


There's no real secrets in this Bond & Respond quilt project, cause I gave y'all my address, showed you pictures of my house and studio. The only secrets, that really exist are in the envelopes, of the notes, cards and letters addressed, personally to Kelly Rae Roberts ... how sweet and wonderful, thoughtful are you guys. Every time, I get one ... I think back on all the love, my family showered on me ... while I carried my first born. On my Grand Ma's death bed, she made a point of sharing with me, her great disappointment in her family. It seams, many were named after my Granddaddy, but not one child was name after my Grand Ma. Seeing this sadness, on her face, I tried to lift her spirits, with one of my dry jokes. "I said Grand Ma , if I ever have a daughter, I will name her after YOU." Ha, Ha, he, he, and to my surprise, three years later my daughter Lillian Grace was born.

    1. Sweet post! My mom told me at her death bed, before knowing it was a he, that my son's baby should be named after her. Then Javier André was borned 3 days before my mom's birthday. She already had two granddaughters named after her, then on October Luna Elisa was borned and named (Elisa) after her! I think my mom was in loved with her name!

    2. This is a lovely story and so kind of you to honor your grandma--what a beautiful name too! I like how you connect it to what you are experiencing now. I didn't have time to make a quilt patch--sorry. But thanks for the note in my FB inbox. I can't wait to see the finished product!

    Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

    ... re posted from bloggingrevelations.com - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
