Above: A group of challenge quilts all in the same colors.  Small but detailed.  The second from left caught my eye.  I was amazed to see that it was made up of all raw edge bits.  Quilted in yellows and reds.  It’s really well sewn, but I don’t think it will have a long life. 

  • Himself:  Asked for four days off but hasn’t gotten them.
  • Herself:  Therapist muttering about stenosis.  New stretches to do every two days.
  • Reading:  Finishing Box short stories and one of the books in David Baldacci’s Will Robie series.
  • Gratitudes:  …for so many friends at the pool.


    1. Hubby had stenosis and that followed with a serious surgery. Not something to everything she tells you and then some. Glad you showed that one quilt up close as I had no interest until I saw the details.

    2. What a wonderful exhibit of quilts and other crafts. All that's left of quilt's that my grandmother made are several Winnie the Pooh style bears and Christmas ornaments that my brother and I have. A gifted sister-in-law crafted those items from what Mother and I salvaged years ago. A rambunctious young canine had created havoc with those quilts hanging on our clothesline.Having those fabric memories is among my gratitudes of the day. I hope your "gratitudes" category is now a regular feature. Your list spreads joy.

    3. It's art, yes? I need help with these things.

    4. That's very creative and a different kind of quilt. One of my friends said their son went to Comic Con here in Hawaii and paid $100 to have a group photo taken with Stan Lee.


    What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.


    We got there too early for our assignments, but after trying to get coffee we got both just in the knick of time.    Portfolio Re...
