    My friends father just died. He had Alzheimer's and she took care of him for 15yrs. She has requested that a quilt be made out of his clothing. I've never heard of this. Ties, yes. Clothes, no. Feedback please!

    Well we had our county fair this past week end, and I got several ribbons, 3, 3ed place, 2, 2ed place, and 7, 1st place, and best of show, grand champion. WOW I was not expecting any, so was a real surprise. LOL

    Work on my little Cottage is really coming along, power in, lights in, air & heat all in and it works great, all insulated and sheet rock almost all done ready to paint, then sink and counter will go in and flooring. I can hardly wait, so ready to do some dyeing!!

    Yesterday was a no-quilting day. I had a writing assignment I HAD to finish for work. I cheated Sunday and quilted all day. Trying to get enough projects for hand quilting to keep me busy in Israel.
