and Cozy Home:
Also here are four Pocket Patterns that are part of another class I am teaching at Little Quilts beginning in January: Study in Amish. This class meets four times. Each session deals with stylistic regional differences in Amish quilts, in this case, Lancaster PA, Holmes County OH, Indiana, and Illinois. The patterns come with the classes. I am offering them as a set on my website as well. I'm very excited about this class, so if you are interested and live in the Atlanta area, I hope you will consider signing up :-):
Tuesday, 5am, note found by mother on clipboard (tandem snoring coming from vicinity of day bed and chair):
Hi, Mommy, I am here. So is Kyle. He is a Marine in my unit, so it is cool that he stays here. Wake me up before you go anywhere. Love you, Timy" [editor: note that he doesn't even know how to spell his own name anymore]."
next clipboard entry:
Hello my son, I love you. [editor: sensing there is more to the story] Does Kyle live in Atlanta? It is too early to wake you up. I am taking quilt class samples to LQ and will be back soon. Hope we can go eat when I get back. Love, Mom"
Got back at 11am. Timy was awake but had written the following on the clipboard:
MaMa, Kyle is from Boston. I do not know what the game plan is [editor: I knew I smelled a story]. Let's do lunch. Love, Timy"
Timothy: "So Kyle flew in from Boston to see this girl. They've been emailing."
Mom: "Had they met before?"
Timothy: "No. So she picked him up at the airport."
Mom: "How did that go?"
Timothy: "Well, she called me to ask where she could drop him off. I thought he was in Boston."
Mom: "How much time was there between picking him up at the airport and calling you?"
Timothy: "About half an hour."
Mom: "Where was Kyle planning to stay?"
Timothy: "With her."
Mom: "Where was she planning for him to stay?"
Timothy: "With me."
Mom: "I wonder what will happen next?"
Timothy: "Can't wait to find out."
