Default Drunkard's Path Story

I was out of town for a few days and when I came home I had gotten a quilt magazine in the mail. I found it in my husband's bedtime reading stack. I questioned him about it and he said he wanted to read about the "Drunkard's Path." Needless to say he was kind of disapointed it was a quilt pattern, not a story about a drunkard. He has had 8 years sober.

I will have to make him a quilt soon.... It may be a Drunkard's Path. Phannie

Sounds like a great plan! An idea may be to add a prayer or special block at the end of the paths to congratulate him, thank him, and show strength from a higher power.

That's so sweet that he wanted to read about Drunkard's Path - shows he was thinking about his sobriety. Congratulations to you both. And you definitely need to make him a Drunkard's Path quilt in celebration.

The pink and yellow one on the cover? I saw it yesterday and loved it. The first Drunkard's Path I ever saw was made by mt grandmother who probably never had a drink in her life.

Yes it was. It is a beautiful quilt and I do have one my grandmother-in-law made. I think I will have to "Man" up the colors some.

Thanks for the kind words. He works everyday to stay sober, Like I work everyday to keep weight off. He is a great supporter.
