We had an intern at my work for the past month who was so much fun to have around and very helpful that I just had to make her a little something. She liked to tease me that quilting makes me really old and would laugh every Monday morning when she asked what I did on the weekend and I explained I was either quilting or going to a quilt show or buying fabric, or at some rock concert. She would ask how is it possible that you are old, sit around quilting all the time but then get to see more concerts than me? I would explain that in reality quilting was super cool and being old meant you get to do whatever the heck you want.
So last Monday when she came in and asked what did you do this weekend and then she started laughing and said, let me guess you were quilting? I laughed and said well, since you mentioned it, I did. She asked me how many quilts I was making and I told her I was not making a quilt. She was completely confused and stated that she did not think quilting meant anything other then large blankets. Then I presented her with this:
She really liked it and even better - she is not longer an intern but a paid employee for the rest of the summer before she goes back to University!
