sunbonnet sue


Good Morning everyone:)

JulieK sparked my interest yesterday with her post on Sunbonnet Sue. She wanted to see pictures from other bloggers about Sunbonnet Sue. Then I got a call from my no-blog best friend in Montana last night which was out of the norm since I only here from her during the day when the kids are in school and we can talk. Lets just give you a little information about my no-blog best friend then I will talk about sunbonnet sue. My no-blog best friend and I have been best friends since 5th grade wowza that is a long time. In our early 20's we took our first quilting class and were hooked. 20 years later this last Halloween I flew to Montona where she picked out my Sophie and we got our first tattoo...guess what it was? That's right it was 2 SunBonnet Sue's sitting on a swing. When I go to her house I load up a suitcase of fabric and UFO's and take my sewing machine as my carry on the airplane and spend a week in heaven with her. I love to go and hang out. It is heaven for me. Anyway when I am there she has a wooden swing on her porch and we sit out there and quilt and talk. It is the best! We have made so many memories! I love her!! She has been my best friend and has helped me and been there for me when no one else was...I love you....Thanks for being my best friend:)

Now on with the sunbonnet sue sharing. I must admit this is not my quilt but would love to take the credit. It is my no-blog best friend and she called me last night to tell me she entered it into the fair this week and guess what she got? She placed 2nd in her division. How cool is that? We were pretty excited so then I had to tell her about JulieK how she had a post yesterday on sunbonnet sue and said I am going to do my post on you winning 2nd at the fair. Way to go...I guess now I better do mine. For my birthday I got the sunbonnet sue book better get to work on it....

Have a great day everyone

Sunbonnet Sue is one of my favorites. I enjoyed reading your blog. Funny you should mention that you are going back to nursing school. I told someone, just today, that a lot of hairdressers go back to school to become nurses. Not this hairbender! lol I've had enough of "nursing" taking care of my elderly dad. I'll take care of him, but I don't think I could be so patient with strangers. I'll just keep cuttin' hair...

Ok that has got to be the funniest tatoo I've ever heard of. I've gotta tell the gals in my group about that. This is a cute quilt your friend made. I bought a japanese quilting book full of sunbonnet sues - all different kinds and types. It is really a cute book. Sometime, yes SOMETIME I will make one.
