My years of travel in the quilt world have taken me to places I'd never dreamed of visiting. They've led to experiences that could never be duplicated and memories that will last forever.
The really big bonus is the friends I've connected with along the way. Whether it's face to face or new Internet pals.....friendship is the true bonus of my career.A surprise gift of embellishment material from Jo Timko arrived recently. Thank you, thank you Jo!!
She shared some sea glass she's collected, along with a fossil from their farm and an enchanting shell.
Sea glass is something I've read about....but never saw, much less touched. Here's the Wikipedia definition:
"Sea glass" is physically and chemically weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of salt water. These weathering processes produce natural frosted glass. "Genuine sea glass" can be collected as a hobby and can be used to make jewelry. "Beach glass" comes from fresh water and in most cases has a different ph balance, and has a less frosted appearance than Sea glass."
Included in the package was a string of textured beads and sparkly embroidery thread. Believe me when I say....my mind is whirling with possibilities and gratitude.
GOOD LUCK TODAY TO TEAM USA AS THEY PLAY THEIR SOCCER MATCH TO ADVANCE IN THE WORLD CUP.
