Seams that Bind

Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years. That is what makes a marriage last /more than passion or even sex!
Simone Signoret, French actress (1921-1985)

Today we celebrated a major achievement: Mom completed the top of her beautiful nine-patch quilt.

This masterpiece of one-inch squares pieced together with thousands of seams has been three years in the making. It's an amazing piece of work and I do plan to calculate just how many carefully stitched seams Mom made to hold it all together. It's done! It's stunning! Mabruk!
