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!

      $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite.
