I have seen it on traditional Amish quilts many times but always thought it represented a basket of apples? Now Amish folks don’t make their quilts with crochet, rather with a completely different craft. If you quilt yourself, please share!
Though losing interest at her age is normal–quite common that most woodwind instrument players totally lose interest around ages 14/15–flute baby has been taken an interest recently in guitar.
Topping off, her band director has asked her last week to take up French Horn because the spot will be vacated by a graduating senior. She is so quick to please and has accepted the challenge, starting Monday. Part of it I guess is the lure of ludicrous scholarship money for a horn player leading her to a hazy decision. Is this the right path for flute baby? We did raise our children in the American fashion and gave her freedom. She earned full scholarship in flute lessons and paid for the instrument. Rightfully so, it’s her choice whether to continue her flute study or not. Only time will tell. Turning into one or other of your parents sometimes sneaks up on you…just about now. I must admit it is trying to just step back and show my unbiased support…no if or but…period. Trust that she will live and find her happy self.
It was a very serious day here…I must now chill and live like an amish?! 😀
