Mini rantings, not at all quilty or fiber-y or creative in anyway.

This post has changed. I took the time to re-read it, and realized that I was doing nothing but bitching, and that wasn't what I started this blog for. I sounded as if I really don't like my husband, which isn't true at all. I ranted and raved about crappy cameras, which was true and valid, but mostly, I didn't treat my husband too damned well, and that was just plain wrong, and awful, and needed not to happen. To anyone who read that, I apologize. I'm apologizing to him, too.

The Quilters Last Will & Testament

The Quilters Last Will & Testament*
Being of sound mind (a statement which does not bear close examination), I, Fishquilts do hereby record my last will and testament. Knowing that Furball, my husband hasn't the least appreciation for, or for that matter, knowledge of my extensive fabric collection, which collection is suitably deposited in sundry places for safe keeping. Knowing also that Furball has already notified the local dumpster to pick up and dispose of the before-mentioned collection "willy-nilly" (the thought of which causes me a most severe case of hives). Therefore, I do will this collection and all other collections related to it, to my dear friend and fellow fabric preservationist, Terry.
It is my wish that she/he, upon hearing of my death and obtaining clear proof that I did not manage, although goodness knows I tried, to take it with me, would come to my home post haste, before the dumpster, and search out my collection which is similarly stored at her own abode. That she should rescue said collection and stack it in my quilting studio, along with my sewing machines, frames, old buttons, lace, patterns, quilts, dolls and works in progress. After she/he has done this, she/he should purchase refreshments for my friends not yet departed, which friends are also her/his friends, and every last one shall be in that room and they shall hold a wake and say lovely and kind things about me until they run out and then they shall divide amongst themselves, by lot, my wonderful collection. I shall be hovering over that very spot until this is done.
Terry shall then quit this spot and close the door, leaving trivialities to those who do not understand.
This is my wish on the matter.
