I’ve decided to extend his contract indefinitely. The list of reasons for the contract extension is very long. And this summer the list has just grown longer and longer.
You may already know about Dietz and his amazing feats making and setting up quilt racks
and the old sewing machine he turned into a vanity
and the blue bird bath he found at an estate sale.
And now this summer he raised the bar way high with a road trip through the Smokey Mountains
which took us through Pidgeon Forge,
zip line adventures …
and a lake boat ride.
And I brought home a hummingbird for my back door.
I need to mention the quilt shop stops along the way, too.
And now in the middle of summer’s heat, he caps it all off with a cigar box.
I know nothing about cigar boxes, Cuban or otherwise. But this box is valued because Dietz found it for me (of course!) – and because of what is inside.
This treasure box is filled with hankies of all kinds! He knows what warms my heart!
What will I do with more hankies? Oh, the possibilities are endless. And the Colorado sister is giving me inspiration as she works on a quilt for her smallest granddaughter. It looks like a dress-up fashion show to me!
I plan to sign myself up for a hankie project as soon as I finish the Sisters round robin and the August class I’m signed up for and the To Do list for the fall show …
But most important, I’m signing up for 41 more years with this guy!
