In 2006 a customer by the name of Luanne Lindeman asked my permission to use the signature photo of Susannah for her class with Ruth McDowell and of course, I said yes. In 2011 she gifted the pieced top to me and I have been waiting to start quilting it and today is the day. Thinking of Susannah’s surgery tomorrow has prompted me to work on this quilt and since I really can’t hand quilt well, I will machine quilt it and be able to hang it very soon. Ruth McDowell’s work is amazing – she turns photographs into quilts – as you can see here.
Connie returned home from Chicago via Spring Green and Country Sampler. Luckily enough they were having a Valentine’s class and Connie joined them. Shown here are some of her purchases and the projects from the class. Sure looked fun!
Tammy is adjusting to life at home again – and being greeted by Ernie Joe Mauer. I don’t always sleep so well but when I think back over the past week, I realize I didn’t hurt so bad when I got up in the morning. This morning I hurt like crazy – I think I’ve discovered what causes that – Tammy slept beside me all night and I’m stiff and achey this morning. Uh oh, now what?
Here are the 2 big goldens – Lexie and Gipper who are here for about 3 weeks while their mom and dad spend time in Florida. Two more dogs arrive tonight and 2 more arrive Thursday night. Take a deep breath, Mary!
