warm and tender love

We listened to Percy Sledge on the way to work on Saturday morning, and this song has been in my head ever since.  For me, he has one of the most heart-melting voices in the world, and is right up there with Wilson Pickett and Little Richard. Rob rolls his eyes a lot, I think, because he’d rather have Def Leppard and Uriah Heep. We’re different like that :)

A woman who bought the smallest patchwork throw I’ve ever made (I think it was my first or second one) sent me two pics of it when she got home yesterday:

If she wants to use it as a table cloth, who am I to argue? A sale is a sale :)

      The first one I ever sold was to an American woman who said it was for her dining room table. There’s clearly something very appealing to people about these simple squares (without the batting, as well).

    A textile is a textile, and if someone wants to use one of my quilts on the table, she can go right ahead, so long as she doesn’t spill her dinner on it. That piece makes a lovely tablecloth… I’m luckier than you in the music department, we have very similar tastes and can often be heard belting out golden oldies along with the radio on long car trips. Or at least, I’m singing, and he’s making a noise he calls singing…

    I like quilts on the table sometimes but not to eat from. I just put them there to look nice. I have never made one without batting though. Once they are sold, you have no control what they do with it. At least you have control over how you spend the money she paid. :)

    I do like that song and his voice myself. I keep wondering why you are feeling like a truck ran over your box of chocolates. It’s none of my business but it’s sort of stuck in my head nw.

      My chocolates got squashed by a number of unpleasant events/circumstances that culminated at the same time. I’ll just say here that it’s been a very difficult year so far. I’m grateful for a good doctor (who really seems to listen properly) and even better friends. I haven’t been much of a friend myself to them lately :(
