Death's Junkshop



pg. 105: "You should do what my mother does," Megan said. "She keeps each of her works-in-progress in a separate box labeled with the name of one of her friends. If, God forbid, she should pass away unexpectedly, each friend will receive the box with her name on it and think my mother was working on a quilt especially for her. She uses the names of women she doesn't get along with, too. She says it's a great way to make sure she has plenty of guilt-ridden, sobbing mourners at her funeral."

Jennifer Chiaverini The Cross-Country Quilters An Elm Creek Quilts Novel

That is certainly a thought, and actually in a couple cases a pretty good idea. Those books are great, I think I'm behind in the series now by a couple. I really need to figure out how to get more hours into my day.
