Home From the AQS Quilt Show

Life is Good! Be Thankful! 72 x 84 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2002.

I left Atlanta Thursday and flew to Philadelphia en route to the AQS Quilt Show in Lancaster, PA. Literally, the first shop I noticed on my way to baggage claim was a Life is Good shop! It seemed to sum up my feelings perfectly about life at that moment. I took it as a sign that I was going to have a fabulous trip, and I did.

I immediately purchased a cup that says “Life is Good” on one side, and “Do what you like. Like what you do.” on the other side. I knew it would be a great reminder each morning with my coffee. For good measure, I also purchased  a pair of “Life is Good” snuggle socks for cold evenings in case my morning dose of optimism wore off during the day. (Sometimes dealing with difficult people can have that effect).

I embraced this optimistic view of life long before this company existed, so I am thrilled it is spreading the gospel of optimism.  One of my most precious heirloom quilts is Life is Good. Be Thankful.

Spread the word.
