There are perks to this whole CaRMS chaos. People feel sorry for you. People try to inspire you and show you that they support you and they love you.
People make you quilts.
In Halifax, my sweet girlfriend Erin and her momma made me a beautiful quilt with lovely earthy colours.
The best part of this quilt? My friend Erin is a midwife and she gets obstetrical nerdery. SERIOUSLY.
That says penis. and fetus.
and there’s embolism and forceps and syphilis and penicillin and so many more.
I have a quilt that has syphilis on it…Secret syphilis…which of course is the very *worst* kind.
It is the GREATEST QUILT EVER.
and it’s cat approved.
