In the middle of all this I spent last weekend flying to my DSD's for a mini family reunion. We were meeting a granddaughter/niece that we had never met. So we spent the weekend teaching her how to sew. What better way to get to know someone then to sew with them.
As a surprise to my DSD, I made her a quilt of her dog and his favorite toy. He's so cute dragging along that 6' blue snake that I couldn't resist creating a quilt in his honor. So here it is, "Charlie and His Snake, Blue. Below is the small quilt in it's new home in DSD's entryway.
Here is a picture of Charlie with his blanky and his snake, two of his most favorite things.
I've also been trying to write my history. I was explaining to my Landlady how I used to lecture and all the stories I told about my quilts, quilted clothing and cloth dolls in my journey's. She said, "I hope you have it all written down so it's not lost." That started me thinking that she is right, so I've split my time between writing my history, finishing unfinished projects and documenting all my quilts. Pretty boring to write here about but I'll try to do better. The part I'm behind on is good pictures of my clothing. I can't wear it and photograph it at the same time. Some of it doesn't fit anymore either. I'll have to get someone that can model or take photo's.
Keeping up the history can be fun!!!
