    I have made a quilt for a wonderfully talented person she plays the organ and the piano. It is a small wall hanging that has two places I could embroider some words. Anyone have any good Ideas, the fabrics are mostly sheet music with roses and have black,gold and red fabrics in the wall hanging. I thought about
    putting:
    Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but rather the moments that take our breath away.

    Any thoughts for me??

    One of my favorites:

    "Life is like a piano, what you get out of it depends on how you play it."

    "Where words fail, music speaks." My roommate had that on a plaque in her bedroom and I always thought it was a simple, beautiful statement.

    Well, after an hour or two of frustration with skipped stitches, birds nests under it, and grabbing for Mr. Jack the Ripper, what I want to play is

    Fats Domino's "I'm Walking".
