Merry Christmas everyone

Merry Christmas everyone
with the love of my life, George

What am I doing writing a blog?

Quilting is one of the few places in my life where all the corners meet and stay put. On this blog I plan to ruminate about quilting and life, the quilted life, cat and quilts, and any old thing that falls in and out of my brain. I'd be pleased to hear from you on all of this or any topic of interest!

How will I work these into future quilts?

A few beauties I picked up at a neighborhood yard sale this weekend. I will try to work them into future quilts!

It's nice to visit an old friend

While in California on vacation in June, I visited with a quilt I finished in 1999 for my mother, Ramona. Here are some digital pictures, compliments of my sweetie George. The pattern is Boston Commons with a Card Trick border and it is an over sized queen.

The quote on the back is Alfred Lord Tennyson: Oh tell her life is short but Love is long.

My mom's last name is Tennison so I thought it worked well.

a long time gone

I have been away for awhile and am finally back posting. Did you miss me?

A few things have happened since my last post. Remember the quilt I made for my friend, Melody in January (Post: My most recent quilt, January 31, 2010)? I am sorry to report that Melody died on June 8, 2010. She is finally at peace and I am so glad I finished her quilt in January so that she could enjoy it for a few months.

Life is eternal and love is immortal and death is only a horizon. Rest in peace, Melody. You will be sorely missed by your family and friends!
