The Good, Bad & Ugly

The Good

A charity quilt for HospiceCare, Inc.

A bright pink "happy" backing.

The Bad
I remember years ago playing a game in Sunday School. 
We stood in a circle, about 12 of us, and the teacher
told the first girl a “secret”. 
Then that girl whispered it to her neighbor. 
And the story went from girl to girl. 
When it came to the last person she was 
asked to repeat the secret out loud. 
Then the Sunday School teacher 
held up a piece of paper with the original secret. 
The truth was completely distorted having been repeated 12 times. 
That is what I have been dealing with this past month. 
Gossip spread like wildfire thru our quilt guild.
Not much truth was told in the end. 

I've been a member of five different guilds, in five different cities.
And not once have I seen such rude behavior or
ugliness spoken at a meeting.
Hopefully, it is behind us now and we will move forward
promoting our love of  fabric, quilting and friendship.

The Ugly

Snow in the middle of April!


  1. Gossip and rudeness. Ugh! Wish we could and would all treat each other as we want to be treated.

    Sorry you've been dealing with it. This too shall pass.

  2. Love your quilt. But just remember some people are just unhappy. Sorry you had to deal with someone else's unhappines.

  3. You always have the neatest headers! Do you do them yourself?

    Gotta agree on the gossip. So much better to see and talk about the good in others!

  4. Thank you John'aLee,
    Yes, I do the headers and all the graphics. I love playing in Photoshop!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
