Finishes and Family

Another finish. Rise and Shine. Arizona daughter embroidered this a few years back. I just needed to make the binding and get it on there. Hindsight: I wish I'd done the binding different. Hope I can remember for the next flour sack dishtowel that I put binding on. Finally done. I'm sure it is now covering the deliciouse leftover Sunday Dinner chocolate cake.
I tookt this photo of my parents last month. I think they look so great here. That day they took me to see the headstone that is already on their graves! Eek~not sure I like that idea...
This kid turned 14 years old this week. He likes this new shirt that he got to wear to school on his birthday. He received a Candy Bar story from his Utah sister. Remember those? It "was" a great one. I'll give details in the next post.

About 4 years ago, my mom, sister and I went on a trip to tri-cities Washington. We just happened upon the little road that leads to Buggy Barn in Reardon, Wa. This Thanksgiving quilt was on display. It is a Bareroots pattern. Karen and I bought the kit for this quilt. (We made 2 quilts out of one kit.) Finally! it's done! yeah! I hand quilted along 4 of the border lines. That's all that needed to be done for the last year! ugh
Take Care~~

Hopefully, that table runner will get a "DONE" by it. It will be the one that wins you the prize, so GO FOR IT. Watch my blog this week for my latest project. Haven't talked to you for a while. I'll call.

Hey I think you need to past a few more pictures, because there are more "Done"s out there. Thanks for the towel, I like the binding you chose.

Enjoy your parents. I miss mine everyday. But I know they are happy. I really like your new blog look. Isn't it new? I'm a blockhead but it seems new to me.
