Studio Serenity

Hello, everyone.  It's me, Cammie.  Yesterday, Maggie and I went down to our mom's Studio ...

"Hi.  What are you doing?  Quilting?"
"Ha roo, Mom."

She was trying to quilt something bigger than she's done in a few years, so we were sure she needed our help!  She seemed stalled out or something.  Getting the Bernina manual out, using HBO words, using the seam ripper ... we thought she could do with a big dose of serenity!

"I have an idea, Maggie."
"I'm with you, Cam.  Hey, Mom - this should help!"

We flew all over the Studio, racing around like crazed River Otters, under Mom's table, between her chair and the table, round and around -- I might have even tried to jump into her lap a time or two!  She forgot all about trying to quilt and just watched us.

"There.  Isn't that better?!?"
"Thanks, Cam."

She forgot all about her frustration and just cheered us on.  Or urged us not to knock things over.  Something.  I don't know.  (For the record, neither Maggie nor I have ever knocked anything over.  We can't say the same for Mom.) Anyway, we helped her get back into her mental happy place and brought serenity to the Studio!

We hope you have a wonderfully peaceful day!  Call us if you need any help in that regard.



  1. OM word ladies anytime I have to use my seam ripper I need to have a swear jar. Dang do I it when say the bobbin gets tangled especially with itty bitty stitches. Thus far the quilt is very pretty. Did I miss the finishing up the great Reno project

  2. Cammie, Maggie and Mom,
    Thank you for your kind comments about Madi. She is missed tremendously; however, over the last 16 1/2 years she occupied every sq foot of the house
    leaving us pleasant memories in each spot.
    Hugs cecilia

  3. Way to go, you two! You are perfect for returning a mind to its normal serene state. I feel better after reading this post!

  4. Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh Cammie i would have been bawling my eyeballs out if I had to start over on my bathromdel. My word above I am so very sorry. I wish we could send our builder and crew there. I met him when we moved to this house in 1983. He was 11 months old. Grew up and worked in construction as a teenager then major in construction management in college. One of his first jobs was in 2006 when he gutted our kitchen.
    Hugs Cecilia

  9. You gals were such a big help to your mom. We hope she didn't use any of those HBO words after your visit.

  10. You are so helpful! And your expression of your mom using HBO words made our mom laugh out loud! The quilt is so pretty and we are sure very challenging to do, so all your help is surely appreciated!
