Every once in awhile, you meet a person who is so very special in so many ways and you feel so fortunate to know them.  This is true of my friend and former supervisor, Catena Bergevin.  Catena and I worked together for about four years at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art and she hated anyone to introduce her as "my boss." This October, she married her long time sweetheart Antonio Tedesco and I made them this wedding quilt, called, Öctober.

Catena and Anthony then BROKE OUR HEARTS by moving to Greensboro, North Carolina! So hard to say goodby but we know they will have a wonderful life together there.  As a parting gift, Catena allowed us to adopt her loving cat, Julie, who has become the resident quilt inspector.  Here she is checking out my latest one!

So it is goodbye to Catena and hello to Julie!  Not the way I would have it but pretty good all the same!

Bittersweet memories for you, but now with technology like Skype, you can still chat " face to face". The cat's adorable.
