IN THE BEGINNING, THERE WAS MAN AND WOMAN



They were happy except for one problem, Woman was always cold. The man was unhappy trying to keep the woman warm.



So the man thought, I will build her a fire, then she will be warm and happy.



So she had a nice fire and was happy only as long as she was near the fire. (woman changes with age....what is up with that....now man is unhappy)...



But the woman still froze when she was away from the fire. Woman is still unhappy...



Man has another idea.....



I will go and hunt wild beast make woman happy!



I will make her coats of skin. I will brave the wild, risk my life only to make woman happy (that is what she thinks I am here for anyways)....



(how the man has changed too...this will have to be another post). So man braved the wild beast, made her coats of skin and blankets for her bed. Now woman is happy!! (only for now....there will be other problems that arise but that would take volumes to speak about)....HA!!

So we see how the first quilt was made.....



So March is National Quilting month, Sew Cal Gal is having a "Golden Quilters Award's nominations and Giveaways....go to her blog and vote. I know that Judy from Green Fairy Quilts, and Kelly from "I have a Notion" are in the nominations....and you all know how I love these gals...go and cast your votes for whom ever you think deserves the award in the catagories offered.
