I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

Here is the "Summer" side of my King-size reversible (yup--I pieced BOTH sides--but I was a lot younger & crazier then lol) ! It is just too big to get it all in one photo:
Here are a few shots of my label (click to enlarge):

"Dreamscape: A Quilt to:

Navigate the....

New Millenium"...

This took me TWO years...it is machine pieced and tied...

Am having my wonderful friend Mary Ann over for a chicken BBQ (Thom is Le Chef @ le grill!) this afternoon (sure hope my neighbor stops mowing his lawn!!!) anyhoo..potato salad, deviled eggs and she is providing dessert.  What a blessing to have a friend to celebrate with...

She is a quilter, knitter, sewer magnifique--sooo, we can sit and craft, snack and have a bit o' wine--but of course--all together....what fun!!  

I hope you are all enjoying friends and family for your celebration.

Ruby Begonia sends you her best:
