Finally we begin to see the results of the winter we weathered! The trees outside our window are huge and we can no longer see much of sidewalk across the street. We do listen to the city noise but can't see who is making it, LOL. I think Enzo sees far more than we do.
I have been stitching away on my Red Button Quilt and was trying to decide if I was going to Spargo all the little flowers when it suddenly dawned on me...hey, this is a Red Button Design....where are the buttons?!!! Then I remembered I didn't want to lose them and so didn't bring them along. Shoot!!! I hope I'll be able to find them when I get back to Sisters!!!
We weathered the blackout just fine and had a nice little campout inside with our grandson. He has new glasses! He very importantly told me that he is on a gluten/lactose free diet and that he misses eating the foods he likes. As we walked around downtown we took a break at a coffee shop that had vegan/gluten free cupcakes...now there is a sweet happy boy!
It seems that some of the intolerant challenges of the world in general have reached the quilting world in a very sad way. I have not witnessed this so cannot speak directly but Stacy West posted on Facebook an article that you can read here. For me the core of quilting in my mind is generosity of time, spirit and quilts. I hope we all can remember this and be kind.
Have a wonderful day and be safe this
Memorial Day Weekend!
