Let me tell you what happened to me, this afternoon...
I was coming back from work, building quilts in my mind, while driving my car, as usual... It was fresh, but sunny, I felt happy. You must know, that the ONLY quilt shop for miles around happens to be on my way home (I've truly looked for other possible roads, but nope, I HAVE TO pass along that shop ! (must be written in my destiny )....
The car (not me, I swear!) stopped just in front of the small parking lot.
Do I need telling you that I was in heaven, two minutes later ? Some new books..... aha......... some new bolts.....aha..... and THERE it was : a whole box, full of brand new fat quarters ! I swear they were smiling at me !
How could I resist, tell me ! As a good mother, I adopted six of them, and kept them on my heart, while bringing them to the car....
I still had time : HE (the master commander, the love of my life) should come home later...
Suddenly, my heart felt down : HIS car was there, already ! How could HE do this to me ? How could I keep my six new babies away from HIS sight ? Ooooh, sh...... !
I noticed that HE had opened some windows, to welcome this sunny afternoon, and I got a quick inspiration : I ran to our bedroom window, pushed the open window, and launched my babies inside. Then, I went into the house, in my best innocent appearance.
HE suddenly came out of our bedroom (Oh, my goodness !), asking :
"Honey, do you know what this is ???"
Me : "What ?" (quick, think, think good !)
"Well, THIS came from our window !"
Me : "Really ??? Well, that's unbelievable ! How come ?"
"Are you laughing at me ? This is fabric !You promised to use your stash!" Me : "FABRIC ?????? Ooooh, isn't it beautiful ? THANKS !"
HE looked to the sky, completely discouraged, maybe praying for God's help... I don't know, and frankly....I don't care...
However, I cooked his favorite supper... We ate quietly, when :
HE : "are you afraid of me, darling ?"
ME : "Noooooooo ! Why are you asking ?" He looked at me with such relief... that I forgave him !
