Never one to waste so much as a sapling, Nancy started on the cover of this tablet:

I thought it would be nice to get Nancy’s art out into the world, so I’m asking people to hold the cloth version every ‘n then. Today’s stitching is held by my friend Lori Grillo. I met Lori through the Twilight Theatre. My daughter, Alison founded the theatre in October 2007, and I quickly became the Managing Director. Lori and her entire family were in a summer stock production, and like so many other people, they were hooked. Every single one of them. Both daughters, her husband Bob, and Lori. For the past several years, Lori has been Twilight’s Production Manager, and let me tell you, she is amazing. And we couldn’t do it without her. She thinks, she plans, she laughs, she cries, she tends to all sorts of details that far too often go unnoticed but never unappreciated, she performs, and she always cheers for Twilight. In her life outside of Twilight, she works for College Options Foundation, and she preserves personal and family histories in scrapbooks. For these reasons and for so many other good reasons, I love her.


p.s. I know, I’m all over the place with the numbers. It’s a long story. Let’s just call it Jeanne Learns That There Is No Such Thing As Perfect, shall we?


She is my developmentally disabled sister-in-law, Nancy,
and I am Jeanne, the woman who flat-out loves her.
