Quilting Makes Granny Happy
I went by to check on my 94 year old Granny and she was not happy. I don't guess I have ever saw her like this. She was sitting doing her crossword puzzles when I came in. Her sewing machine was sitting there with a quilt laying next to it that she had been working on. I bragged on her quilt and she said she never wanted to see that quilt again. This is so not like her. She makes at least 1 quilt a week. I asked her what was wrong and she said her sewing machine had torn up. It was breaking needles. As you can see, her sewing machine is old but this is the only one she knows. I asked her if someone bought her a new one, would she use it, but she did not know. which probably means no. It was so sad to see her so upset. She loves to show her stack of quilts. They are in a little room that she keeps closed off. She gives some away but loves to sell some for extra money. Granny only uses fabric that people give her. Her quilts are not fancy, but they are precious to me. I am sure quilting is what gets her up in the mornings. I wonder if she dreams about quilting like I do. Since that day, the machine has been fixed and she ended up doing 2 quilts that week. Check out the little stool that she sits on all day doing her quilts. She is an amazing woman. Granny is happy again!
