I've been thinking of my sister lately. I know that most of you don't know her so I figured I would introduce her. My little sister is Mabel. She is my best friend and soulmate. These are a couple snap shots of us over the years! Enjoy!

We could pass for twins!

Mable and I are very close, as you could have guessed. Unfortunately for us we don't get to spend much time together. The last time we spent more than a week or so together was my senior year of high school. Seem is. We both went to a Catholic boarding school for high school. My senior year was her freshman year and let me tell was the BEST!!! Not only were we together, but we got to experience a truly unique school together. After that I went away to college and so did she. Now that I'm back home I have been counting down the days 'til we can see each other on a regualr basis. Thank God she graduates in May!!!

I honestly don't know what I would do without her. She's become the voice in my head telling me everything is ok and not to worry so much. Not a day goes by without a phone call to or from her. My day wouldn't be complete without hearing from her. Occationally we'll go a couple days without talking but those days are few. I look forward to the days when we can spend alot of time together, but until then I'll settle for the couple times a year that I do see her.

Right now we're working on a "Sisters" quilt. We decided over Christmas that we wanted to make a quilt together so we came up with the measurements and we each get to do 8 blocks that are 12 x 12 squares. Other than that there are no rules...anything goes!! Once we get the blocks made I'll make sure to show them off. I'm really excited!! I have already started on my blocks and I can't wait to see what she comes up with. That's what I did Saturday in the studio...but I can't show them off yet cause she reads my blog! Hopefully we'll have an unveiling soon!

Well I think I've gone on long enough about Mabel. You'll be hearing more of her as time goes on.

Ya'll have a good one!

  2. Oh Gladys I love you too. You should tell your readers what your nickname from me is. If I ever start a blog that is what I would call you!!

  3. Mabel is pretty darn special...just like you! Love the pics from the past. I'm sad I missed those days...but I'm glad I get to spend the rest of my days with you two..
