I just had to share this picture. This is a picture of my grandmother and her 10 brothers and sisters. They all had names that started with a "Z".
My grandmother is in the middle row on the far left. Her name was Zenobia. The story is that my great grandmother, Jutry, named her first child a daughter, Zylphia, after her sister. She named her second child, another daughter, Zula, after a friend. Her third child was a son and he was named Zaddock after her brother. Since she had three children with Z names she was encouraged to give the rest of her children Z names which she did. My grandmother, Zenovia Theresa, was born on July 3, 1897 and died in 1982 just a couple of weeks before my daughter was born. She was a great quilter and very liberated for her time. I have talked about her before. I have a few quilts that she made that I will take pictures of and post later but I wanted to share this with you.
I am in sort of a quilting funk lately. I have some projects started so I have plenty to work on. I need to take some time and confine myself to my sewing room until I get something done. With a new grandson and lots of basketball games there are definitely some distractions. My husband and I are also reading Nelson DeMille books. They are not the kind of books I usually read but it is fun for us to read the same books.
