It's been fun making this memory quilt again. But as I've been sewing away, I've had a couple of thoughts. First, I can't believe I'm making a GRIZ quilt!! I've been a Bobcat fan all my life, having been born and raised in Bozeman. The gal I am making the quilt for went to University of Montana for at least 1 year of her college career, hence the Grizzly gear. Sigh. This Cat fan is glad she decided to transfer. Just kidding............sort of.
This woman was also part of a sorority in college. I makes me think of my own sorority days. Some of my greatest memories are from my time with the Arrows. I will spare you the details (for time, censorship and to protect the not-so-innocent). I feel fortunate that social media (read: Facebook) has created an easy way to keep in touch with these amazing women. I also get nostalgic this week because it's Cornell homecoming. I haven't been back for a homecoming since 2003, but sometime I'd love to take my family back to the hilltop. I'm so excited to see some of my Arrow sisters at a wedding next month. We've all come a long way since our college days and it's so fun to catch up and share how each of us crazy girls is now a wife or mommy or career gal or whatever. I'm lucky to have had such a great experience with a close-knit group. Never again in my life will I have a similar experience. There's just something about sharing college life with a group of friends and sisters.
So, this is mostly a shout out to the sweetest girls I know. Love ya, miss ya, wish I could see ya more often. It's also a quick plug for my home business I call Carlia Creations. T-shirt quilts are just one of MANY things I make, so check it out! http://www.facebook.com/carliacreations or http://www.carliacreations.blogspot.com/
