Battle for Glory



Battle for Glory measures 51″ x 59″ and is at the top of my list to make.  Because of my cats and dogs, many of my quilts have to be enjoyed as chair covers and this quilt is perfect on this dark red chair in my piano room.

My team won again last night – at the buzzer just like the night before!  The championship game is at 5 pm today but until that time, I think I’ll work outside in this beautiful weather!  Retirement is the best – there was already a car here today who evidently did not realize we closed last fall.  In all these years I have never gotten to enjoy all the Saturday basketball games like I have this year.  I am “livin’ the dream” !

    Hi Mary
    Is there a way I can contact you? I need to talk to you about where I can obtain of your booklets.
    Congratulations on your retirement! Very cool! We have spoken many times over the years on the
    phone when you had the shop. Sorry to see it go but so very happy for your new life.
    Sincerely,
    Beverly Ferro

    Ain’t retirement grand?!?!?!?!?!

    As for someone showing up on your doorstep….it reminds me of a worn out quilt sign my honey found. He decided that we had driven by it too many times, this time we would stop. It was someone with a long-arm service and bolts of fabric and when we were back in our vehicle, Wayne said – “You have more fabric that she does, only you don’t sell yours!” lol

    Mary you deserve to be living the dream for sure. There is nothing like retirement so keep enjoying it! Last time I checked the temperature outside was 83.
    OOOH LA LA your Peonies are beautiful.
    I’m going to check my old Devil’s Claw blocks; another UFO that got put aside just before we moved here…..14 yrs. ago!!
    Enjoy the game today. I’ll be watching.

    Mary, I have to have that book just from the two quilts so far! Are you signing the books that Mandy will be selling? If I lived closer, I would be watching the games with you! My Buckeyes lost last night, but there is still hope for the Big Games coming up. I can’t wait to see all of the quilts in your house. Your house makes a wonderful setting for the quilts. I love your renovations.
    Enjoy the warm weather.
