The Smell of Grass

>> Tuesday, June 21, 2011


I am highly allergic to grass. I do my best to avoid sitting on it in order to avoid itchy skin and red  rashes. I take lots of allergy medicine in the spring. But I love the smell of freshcut grass. And this quilt, an angel quilt for DQS10 from Carol, reminds me of that fresh smell of grass. It's summery and fun, a perfect picnic scene.

The postal service seems to have disappeared the original quilt made for me, by MichelleSews. Perhaps they didn't like my complaints about their inconsistent rules for flat-rate envelopes and treated the quilt like a dissident in an authoritarian regime? It's unclear, though perhaps it will magically appear at some point later. In the meantime, Carol, or MamaCJT as she is known on Flickr, stepped into her role as angel-quilt-maker-extraordinaire and sent me a quilt, for which I am very grateful. I think this will look great on the blue walls of my bedroom and I look forward to hanging it up. Carol also sent along some fun fabric scraps which I look forward to playing with and turning into something....another quilt perhaps.

What a sweet quiltie! So sorry that you had to get an angel quilt, though at least it's due to the USPS and not a bad partner! I had one of the latter in a swap and it was no fun.

How beautiful- springtime without the sneezes! I'm allergic to dust-mite, but I don't think I'd hang a dust-mite doll quilt on my wall ;)
