I did finish a quilt this past week! That's exciting for me as I haven't had a finish in awhile. This string quilt was made back here.

It immediately went into my 'to quilt' pile which moves very slowly. Then in March
of this year, Joanne offered a Quilters Stimulus deal. I was fortunate to have my name put on her list. Here she shows the latest quilts she has done and mine is among them. I finished the binding on Friday and it feels so good to have accomplished something quilty. Thanks again to Joanne for her generosity and fine work.

One more opportunity for fun mail can be found here. Jackie is celebrating her birthday and giving away presents.

Hugo is a very affectionate and friendly cat, but this photo sure doesn't show that.

Last week we attended our granddaughter, Abby's 8th grade graduation in Wisconsin. She is one special, talented young lady and I'm not the only one who thinks so. How did she grow up so fast? Abby and her classmates are visiting Washington D.C. and more for their class trip. I'm sure she is having lots of fun.

Mini quilt picture puzzle
Mary bought a mini Rebecca Barker puzzle in Paducah and is passing it around our Bee. I had my turn at the 7x9 puzzle and will give it to someone else on Monday. The little size is even cuter than the regular ones.

My daughter, Kari and I shopped briefly at Target last week. This thong caught Kari's eye first and I had to take a photo. Isn't it what every well-dressed quilter takes to a retreat? VBG
