father's day

(A late father's day post--I had to hunt down the photo and figure out the scanner.)

I love this picture of my father with his daughters. It is about 1962; Janna is the adoring daughter, Beth with the rattle, and I'm the pensive one. Dad looks like he is enjoying life, and smiling at my mother with the camera.

framed nine-patch

I organized the raffle quilt for my guild and finished the quilt this week. Sue DiVarco did a beautiful job of quilting it.
I used the same pattern for a quilt for my mother 1 1/2 years ago. This one is 90" by 104".
As always when making a group quilt there is a pile of "I don't think so" blocks, but it was remarkably small with this one. People followed my instructions very well.
