I picked up the quilt

This morning, I headed for my daughter’s house to do ten days worth of laundry.  Not very exciting, but the Memory Quilt I had made for me by KAREN had arrived at my daughter’s house.

In the afternoon, when I returned to the rig, I put it on the bed to see how it looked.  I’m very happy with the result!  It certainly brightens up the room compared to the dark bedspread that came with the rig.  Smile  And each square holds very special memories for me.  It commemorates my first five years of fulltiming, and volunteering.

61 On the way to Indiana9 Back at the ranch, it was another overcast day.  I did find a few wildflower blooms in my front yard.  That was about it for my day today.  It feels good not to be having to move on for a while.

 

Thanks for stopping by…. talk to you later,  Judy

  3. Beautiful quilt. Is that made from tee shirts or was each square made from scratch? Maybe you should take a picture of each square and make a slide show. I'd love to see it closer up.
