A Kodak Moment
I would like to introduce you to one of my dearest friends... her name is Lynnis. She is one of our infamous Lake Jackson Crazy Quilt Bee known as "Bee Crazy." Without doubt most of us fulfill the crazy part without even picking up our needle & thread. Some of us are also a little vindictive.
On a recent retreat we found out Lynnis has extremely sensitive eyes. She woke me up in the wee hours of the morning asking me to close the curtain - the light was bothering her. She said I was talking so she thought I was awake. It would seem I talk in my sleep.
Linda, another dear friend, shared the same room and encountered a similar problem. Lynnis and I were going to bed early and Linda wanted to read. She asked Lynnis if it would be okay. Lynnis had no problem with the reading but told Linda she could if she didn't turn on the light.
We thrive on these situations and use them to our fullest advantage. I have repeated this story countless times and will continue to do so. At our Tuesday Bee I presented Lynnis with this velvet eye mask. It's my original design and actually works so we have this problem solved.
I have enough of these funny stories about members in our Bee to write a book. Jan organized our group approximately ten years ago and Lynnis is a charter member. In addition to Lynnis, Jan, and myself we have 9 other crazy quilters: Julie, Linda, Dolores, Melanie, Maureen, Mary, Claudette, Chris, and Karen. Lynn is a charter member of our group who we have been unable to convert to crazy quilting but she does beautiful beading.
God has truly blessed my life with these wonderful friends. Each one is extremely talented and full of life. In many places our reputation precedes us. We definitely know how to have a great time together.
