crazy quilt

Like fabric scraps they arrived, ready to take their place in the crazy quilt that is our family.

Some are brightly colored, some are old and wrinkled, some are soft and new, some are embellished, some loud, some subtle, some have raw edges and some look like a work in progress.

Some go against the grain, some are as homespun as calico, some as rough as burlap, some as slick as satin. Some keep us on pins and needles, others keep us in stitches.

After some shuffling around and trading places to make sure that it all fits, the colors and textures blend and overlap and come together to make a beautiful picture - bordered by love, stuffed with good cooking - whether it be a quilt or a family, both are warm and cozy and make you smile.
