    Red face Rolling Waves aka The Green Monster

    I finished this one yesterday. It's a 40th birthday gift for my dear friend Matthew. He was my lifeline by way of late night phone calls during my father's illness and passing last year. He's totally worth all 200 hours that I spent cutting, piecing, and quilting this beast, and he is a lover of green like me. I can't wait to give it to him tonight at his party, and to see him and my former bandmates together again.

    A little inside joke between me and the band, "be brave" meant to call in sick for work after playing at the bar until 4am, then continuing to drink and hang together all the next day. Oh, to be young (and dumb) again.
