Rockets' Red Glare

a picture I took a couple of years ago, but the same scene is happening right now

While I hear fireworks popping in the sky around our neighborhood, signalling the end of the Independence Day weekend, I'll show you the last of the sewing I accomplished this weekend. I was pretty much a fixture at the sewing machine, except for tonight when we went out for dinner with Hubby's parents and a brother.

This weekend while I sewed, Hubby did some tree trimming and pruning, which required him to be up on our steep roof. That always makes me nervous, but he did fine. I hope he doesn't have to go up there ever again. He's almost a 60 year-old man! And his almost 60 year-old wife gets nervous about him climbing on steep, high inclines.

Anyway, here is the sewing I finished up:

a quilt for Taylor, a 12 year-old girl who has leukemia



label on a quilt for my parents-in-law

they seemed to like it

Love it! Are you sure you're almost 60? I am convinced you are 20 years younger!

They are both lovely quilts and their owners will feel the warmth of your hugs and caring when they wrap themselves up in them.
Giving away a quilt to loved ones is one of my favorite things to do.
Regards,
Anna
