Seven years ago today I adopted Millie. She was feral, had been hit by a car and rescued. She was not socialized. I didn't know it then, but adopting Millie was the first in a series of things that changed my life.
If it wasn't for Millie, I wouldn't have started making quilts again.
If I hadn't started making quilts again, you wouldn't be reading this blog.
She does all the Quality Assurance work on my quilts.
Millie is the one who gave me the idea to make the word FUN off-kilter. (She ran over the letters, moving them around.)
Millie lets me know when stuff is working and when it isn't.
Millie and I have made friends all over the world. Millie loves this quilt made by Julie. Julie is now one of my very best friends, and although she and I have been emailing and talking for over four years, we've never met in person.
All that will change in October, when I speak at Quintessential Quilts 2013 in St Louis Missouri. Julie will drive five hours from Memphis to meet me. I can't wait.
And how did I attract the attention of the ladies at Circle in the Square Quilters?
From this blog.
And how did I get started in blogging?
Thank you Millie. You changed my life for the better and I am really glad you chose me.
