Today marks the finish of my classic Baltimore, Sweet Journey. Twelve years in the making and many other quilts in between. Baltimores are intense. They require skill, tenacity, and one becomes devoted to them. My journey started with a trip to Houston Quilt Festival in 2003. Elly Sienkiewicz was given the Silver Star award for her contribution to the quilting community and there were many Baltimore quilts on display much to my delight. And above it all, the magnificent Samuel…Continue
My husband had a dr's appointment at the VA Hospital in Columbia MO today. On our way out to the parking lot, we started talking to 2 employees who were also leaving. One of them was wearing a t-shirt that had the best phrase on the back & it fits so many people today.
"Your results of your IQ test came back negative".
There are so many people I would have to give one of those to. …Continue
We have moved back to our main house…at the lake on weekends. What an awesome summer we had and Fall is starting out gorgeous. Went to a Barn Festival last weekend in Remsen, NY. They close down main street and vendors sit up their booths. Not much shopping for us... but the homemade soups and local food was outstanding! The had a small quilt show, that was lovely.
I have been challenged to learn how to play the Ukulele. There's three couples at the lake that have to make up a song…Continue
Life got a bit hectic shortly after my last post. But things are getting a little better now. My husband was declared legally blind on June 7th of this year due to a rare genetic eye disease called Retinitis pigmentosa. He can no longer drive and has applied for disability.

As for quilting, I go…Continue
As some of you know, my daughter & her 2 boys live with us. The boys are 15 & just shy of 17. I swear the 17 yr old is an accident looking for a place to happen. He is the one who broke his right ankle on Super Bowl Sunday while playing ball with his dad & his brother. Now today he decided the genius thing to do was ride in the back of his friend's pickup. Needless to say, his friend was going too fast around a curve on a gravel road & Mike was flung out. The 3 other kids…Continue
Shortly after returning from a quick visit in Seattle with #1 son, I was expecting my Swedish "sister" to come for a visit so I had to clean house. Ick. As long as no one disturbs the dust, all is fine. Once I started the cleaning was brutal. She arrived and stayed with us a week before we headed off to our 50th class reunion in Texas. Because the drive wasn't going to be long enough, we added in a side trip to Grand Tetons. Luckily, they contained the fires and reopened the gate south out…Continue
