This and that!
This picture from an old slide was taken when we lived in Alaska in 1964-66...we had only been married a few months when Dick was transferred there courtesy of the Air Force. And then we made a return visit to the area a year ago...46 years later. Since the quilt I am now working on is from the fabric I got in Juneau, and has totem poles on it, I thought this was appropriate. I have the kaleidescope nearly finished...just need to put all the sections together, then add some sides and get it quilted. I haven't decided whether I want to add beading or not...will see.
Busy week coming up...Friday night we are going to dinner and a concert with our daughter's in-laws, Saturday we are all going to the big Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo, there will be about 12 of us, then out here for a BBQ dinner to celebrate my oldest daughter's birthday and other daughter will be spending the night as she lives about 80 miles away....a little far to drive back home late; it is always good to see her for a long visit anyway.
Then Monday, I have the studioQ bunch here...that is my art quilt group..Monday night is our granddaughter's National Honor Society Induction. Tuesday there is a Diabetic Support Group meeting which I may attend..not sure. Wednesday, my third class for Diabetic Education...Dick has been going with me which is a big help to have an extra set of ears to hear all about it. Thursday is our poker bunch, meeting for dinner and card playing. And I think that is all for awhile...so maybe I can get some really constructive quilting going!!!
