Finally took some pics of the very pretty 4 block wall hanging that I won in the raffle. Come to think of it I have been very lucky in Omaha. I have won something every year. The first time I won one of the large ones and it is hanging upstairs in my hallway. Never thought or would have taken a pic of that. Harv actually took them as I held it up.
With a few days of dry weather I finally got the stain on the bottom part of the deck. It now looks a different color from the other decks because they were done back in May. It will fade eventually. It is still drying and I am hoping no rain until at least tomorrow to let it dry good. Our weather has been the strangest I can remember in Chicago. I am enjoying the 70's but know for swimming, etc. this cloudy, rainy weather is not good. Even the garden. I did not think you could get too much rain but the flowers are not growing as well as they should but the trees (which we have a lot of ) are benefiting. 3 years ago we had the opposite. A terrible drought and 2 years later we lost a couple of very old large trees and they said it was from the drought. You can;t win with Mother Nature. Take what she gives us and be happy to be here.
To get back to the quilt the label has the names of 3 makers of a block but the 4th. was not known. I thank you all for your beautiful work and if the unidentified person reads this please contact me and let me know.
