  1. Quaint Quality; All Quilts are.... Quite the perfect letter; Quilt, Quilting, Quilt-fabrics, Quilting-Bees.... I love everything Quilt, but I guess you already know that....
    My next favorite word with a Q is Quiet. Love that just as much. Quilting in Quietness is my perfect part of the day.

    1. Yes, it was a gift for my son and his bride when they were married almost 3 years ago. Time flies!

  3. I have discovered that a quilt is a gift that comes with tremendous love. When I was pregnant with the oldest, I took a quilting class and made a baby quilt by hand. I can't imagine anything but love pushing a woman forward in the daunting task of making a bed-sized quilt.

    1. You hand-sewed the baby quilt? That is impressive! I "cheat" and use a sewing machine. :-)

    2. No such thing as cheating when using the sewingmachine. It's just as difficult, if not more difficult. You made a wonderful quilt and I hope your son and daughter-in-law love it still as much. I know I do!

    1. I've learned to stop for the day once I get tired, because otherwise I spend more time seam-ripping than sewing!

  7. My mom has some beautiful, intricate quilts and quilt tops that were never quilted that were done by my grandmother and my great aunt. My favorite is called, I think Grandmother's Flower Garden. Most of the fabric used was from feed sacks. Quilts are such a treasure!

    1. How wonderful! I think quilts are even better when they are made by loved ones.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Infant-me, sitting on the wood floor, looks up at my dad, who is sitting on a brown sofa and smiling down to me Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement.  I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me. My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis. When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a paren

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

A brilliantly-colored dark pink and purple fuchsia blossom You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades. Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?) Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win. For as long as I can remember, I've be
