It’s been a sad, quiet day for me—Mom and Chuck headed down the driveway early this morning on their way home to Arkansas. It’s been ages since I spent that much time with my Mother and although it wasn’t in the best of circumstances, I will take that time!!
After lunch the cowboy and I went to Big Timber to run some errands, one of which was to deliver this beautiful quilt to my quilting buddy Donna. Donna’s great-grandmother made the Dresden plate blocks—isn’t that amazing—Donna then chose the old fashioned green solid for the border and sashing, tying the blocks together. The border will be scalloped when Donna is finished with the quilt.
On another quilting front, it is fair time in Sweet Grass County and one of my quilt retreat friends, Mary P. won Best of Show with her stack and whack quilt—congratulations Mary!!!!! I quilted the quilt for Mary while we were down in Texas last year.
Back home we went our separate ways—the cowboy is installing camper tie downs in the back of the truck, I’m cleaning house and doing laundry—not very exciting but necessary.
