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 extreme...it is. We both went to a Catholic boarding school for high school. My senior year was her freshman year and let me tell you...it 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!
