A little ray of sunshine



I needed a little ray of sunshine tonight. I dropped my DH off at the airport today for a 12 day business trip to Europe and spent a good part of the afternoon at a quilt shop. That would be a good thing. Although I did buy fabric, it was to continue my Reversible Quilt, nothing else, I promise! :) But when I got home, I found 2 messages on the voice mail from the airline AFTER his plane had left the second city. Panic! My hubby was okay, but apparently discovered his wallet had been stolen AFTER his plane had taken off the ground. They radioed the gate and they called me to cancel all the credit cards. No one apparently will send him a card or money to the airport. He'll need it to rent a car. So went searching online for Western Union. Fortunately there are about 10 different Western Union locations in the Frankfurt airport alone! Poor guy, what a way to start a trip, with no credit cards or no cash. My heart aches for him. So while I was going through my photos, looking for something to post, I came across this photo of a little wallhanging I had done for an art show. It makes me happy to look at it, hence the name, "Happy Sunflower". Pretty original, huh? Here's hoping he has a better, happy day tomorrow.

That is the sweetest little quilt! It really does brighten up the day. I hope things work out for your husband. Mine travels about 45 weeks a year and has been very lucky so far...just his luggage has been lost. Several times! I wish him luck....Carolyn

Great wallhanging - I really like the detail quilting on it.

Ah, the joys of traveling - not! I always tuck a bit of money here, there, everywhere when I travel for fear of losing it all in one feel swoop and not even having a buck for a drink! Definately not fun, but the good thing about credit cards - they should issue him a new one right away.

At least he didn't loose his passport.

Cheers!
