I am new to Ohio Quilters. Just wondering why the blog posts are so old? (2011). Do you all not blog, and just comment?

Hope you feel better soon, Sherri.  We are getting our second doses next week and I hope my reaction is more like your husband's.  But either way, I agree, the protection is worth it.  Hope tomorrow is better.

I started gathering scraps to make pillow shams for my latest scfrappy.  Im giving it to my oldest granddaughter who is getting her first apartment  this fall.  I knew I had already made a few blocks to matcvh the ones in the quilt,  but I do not know where I put them  so I tore that room apart looking for them.   MY daugther is starting another paper piece project but she was working late last night so I didn't bother to clean up my mess. Figuring she would not want to work on it when she got home.  wrong...  Thought I could clean up and put away today. But not happening  because I am having side effects after the 2nd covid vaccine.  I feel like a train ran over my body. But all in all I would do it again just to get the protection   Thankfully I have some high powered pain meds keft from the first visit for my shoulder break. ,that are getting me through this and I hope it only lasts a day.  DH has no side effects other than a sore arm.  Every muscle in my body hurts  I have chills and some occaisional nausea. But again this will pass. And then I think of poor Tiger  in the hospital and looking at a major change in his life after his accident.   So I should quit complaining.

Nice, Carol! LOL - I'd love to see some tulips and daffodils.

On a far lighter note, I finished this table runner last week, adapted from a wool pattern.  As I said on FB, should Mother Nature decide to warm things up so much that this snowman is inappropriate, I will be happy to pack it up until next year and find something with tulips and daffodils to put out!

Having spent time living outside of the US, I found a very strong appreciation of the liberties we have here. I've often felt as though everyone should spend time living in another country - for that very reason. If some of the people who took part in that disgusting event could fully understand what they have, maybe they wouldn't be so quick to try and tear it down. This country isn't perfect and will never be but, there's a lot to be envied by the rest of the world.

Thanks Carol I too don't like to relive that day in my mind either, But as the years go by,  we should never forget it.  And I don't mean in the vein that our president reminded his groupies to remember it.  WE are so close to losing this Democracy, to authoritarian oligarchy and we must be vigilant in protecting it.  

Comment by Carol Vickers/OH on February 22, 2021 at 7:07am

Certainly not a day I like to remember today, but so very important that we -- and those who come after us, do remember.  I love your memorial Sherri.

Comment by Sherri Eley on February 22, 2021 at 4:19am

You know I didn't but thanks for reminding me   When a grandaughter or great grandchild discovers it..... it will need my signqture...

Brilliant, Sherri! I hope you labeled it.

Comment by Sherri Eley on February 22, 2021 at 2:09am

I couldn't let the events of the last month  go un recognized. So I put together this art quilt as a memorial to the event on Jan  6, 2021.  I have no idea what or where it is going probably into a storage bin soewhere for someone to find after I am gone and maybe it will spark a memory of how we almost lost our Democracy on that day.
