I promised to post the picture of the quilt I was repairing for my daughter. I made this some 30 years ago from a pattern in a magazine. I can't for the life of me remember the name of the pattern.

Just dropped in to say hi to everyone. Not much new is going on. I've been working on repairing DD's quilt that I make for her decades ago.

I will be working on thanksgiving day as usual so to all I wish a happy thanksgiving day.
