Welcome to the Wonderful Things Blog tour. Bonnie from Going Home to Roost created the Wonderful Things with the same beauty that she brings to all of her collections with Art Gallery Fabric. This collection has two color ways, Honest Whispers and Honeyed Wonders.
Honest Whispers is soft and subtle pastels while Honeyed Wonders is Bold and Bright.
My Grandmother is my Wonderful Thing (my favorite person). She is the Matriarch of our family and my last Grandparent alive. She is 92 years and only stopped working 2 years ago! She is delicate yet strong, strong minded yet compassionate, independent yet family focused. I would be lucky if I was half as amazing as she is. She is well know in our family for her amazing food. One of my favorite dished she makes is Menudo. I know, not everyone has a stomach for that dish. LOL
A couple of weeks ago she fell and cracked her femur. Wait let me back up, She fell on a Friday did not tell anyone until the next day, because she did not want to disturb them. She only took some pain medicine and laid down. However the next day she could not walk. That is so her! Too strong for her own good! She is currently at a rehab facility and the Docs, Nurses and Physical Therapist are all blown away by her progress and determination to get back on her feet. They wanted to send her home last week because she is a rock star and already doing very well but the Doc requested one more X-ray and discovered, what they had previously thought was a cracked femur was actually a full break in the femur head. She is strong and determined to get back home and I am sure she will by this week. I have always looked up to my Grandmother but more and more as I have gotten older I have prayed to be just like her. She raised 5 children, worked full time and cared for my Grandfather during his medical battles. She is also the oldest of 10 siblings which she also helped to raise. She is intertwined in every holiday tradition I have known since I was born and also in my kids lives. I could not be more proud of my family as well. I have watched them all rally around her. Cousins, Aunts, and Uncles have flown in for out of town to gather around her and support her healing. Truly blessed to be apart of this wonderful family. Such a Wonderful Thing!

I love the Words to Live by. I have been looking forward to making a top for my daughter to wear. I am secretly hoping she looks down at her shirt and is reminded to be true to herself! Anything that can help a Mom out, I will take it!! Thanks Bonnie!
