I have a list of things to write. You’ve all heard about Tiger Woods’ car accident by now – this is exactly the same as Rick’s accident in May 1966. He fell asleep, went in the ditch and his right ankle was shattered and he had a compound fracture of his leg. Obviously his foot was on the brake and the impact crushed his leg. Thirty years later Rick had it rebroken and reset. Years later after that he had a knee replacement and the ankle had to be fused. He can hardly walk today. I wonder if Tiger’s golf days are over.
Have you been watching Instagram and Scrap School? Lissa Alexander is the author of the book and years ago she worked for The Old Craft Store in Carrollton, Texas. She brought a bus load of quilters to our barn in June, 1995. Her group was the first to visit and more improvements were made since then. (We even had our wedding reception there in 1997!). Here are some old pictures of that group – I’ve been bemoaning the fact that I now weigh 30 lbs. more than in this picture and Connie commented on her denim jumper. Lissa is the blonde on the lower right corner.
Can you see the Farmers Daughter quilt hanging in the background?
We served supper and the next day we had a class. Could there be anyone reading this blog today that was on that bus trip?
I was cleaning a bit in the piano room today and Heidi was sitting on the table – she is my oldest cat at around 15 years so I needed a picture of her. The bowl of sewing goodies caught my eye as well.
I loved this vignette of antique pincushions.
Here’s my next project – Connie’s habit of starting new quilts is rubbing off on me!
And do I need to say that my “helper” is not necessary nor is he wanted?
And look at the water!
It does feel like spring in North Iowa!
You see, I did have lots to write about, didn’t I? Nothing very earth shattering however. Sigh.
