Several months ago, the topic came up of all the shirts one gets with all the races one does. I have A LOT! They were just hanging in my closet because I just don't wear them again. My boss, knowing what a crafter I am, jokingly suggested I just go right ahead and make them into a quilt. Pfffffhhhttt. ME? A QUILT? Ha.Ha.Ha.
Well, Miss Martie speaks up and reminds me her Mom is a pro quilter. For reals.
Those little wheels in my little brain started to churn.......maybe, I could give all my shirts to Mama Dorene and then pay her whatever she wants and have her MAKE it for me!!
Well, being the saint that she is, she agreed. So when she came down for the birth of the twins, I handed her a sack of shirts and then patiently waited for whatever concoction she came up with.
May I say this? She.is.GENIUS! Look at this!
It is seriously the greatest ever! I love it! Every 2008 event I participated in is represented there, and the sneakers fabric is absolutely perfect!
When she unfolded it and I started running my fingers lovingly over all my different shirts, I just wanted to bawl. It is beautiful and I love it. LOVE IT!
Mama Dorene - you are the best! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Now, to go curl up in my uber-cool bankie.....
