Wear it Like a Crown

Mama's in Houston for Quilt Market. She was invited by Valdani to sign her books in their booth. She's excited and so very fearful at the same time.


Her suitcase, full of her books and quilts weighs 71 lbs. She weighs 90 lbs. She says she's a "little bunny in a great big forest."  We know she'll do great. Her close friends and Papa know the same. Yet Mama still worries about the unknown. Will people like her designs? Will they like her book? Will she let herself and everyone down?

She said this song was perfect for her feelings.



Mama will be away from the computer until next Thursday or Friday. She wants to unplug. She said she wants to "be in the moment and take in all that it has to offer." She's waited 20 years for this moment.


She loves you and so do we. Mama's going to take her fear and wear it like a crown.

xx, Hannah and Harrington

If I know your Mama, she will have all of Houston eating out of her hand and doing happy bunny dances almost as soon as her plane touches down.

You two be good for your papa--and save the partying in the poo-poo bucket for when Mama comes home. ;)
