Wild Hair!

Usually when you think of wild hair something like this comes to mind...

but i had a different kind of wild hair this past week...

A Zig Zag Quilt! I have wanted to sew one of these up for a long while.
Check! One more quilt off of the long and growing list.

On Mothers Day

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing my neighbor's lawn.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with the children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."
Marjorie Pay Hinckley
Words to live by...

A girl can always dream...

I am constantly coming across pictures like these, and if I concentrate hard enough I can just about see myself there. Come and visit!
