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 Fiona's 
Dolly Quilt

Here is Willa's
Dolly Quilt 

These were both put together from 
leftover chunks and strings,
starting with the string block centers
that I posted yesterday...

Such fun little projects....
I plan to layer and then, 
back them tomorrow...

Today Tom and I did errands
in the morning 
and then walked at our
favorite path at 
the playing fields...

{I managed about 15 minutes
before the sciatica began--
but that is better than not 
walking at all!}

Tonight's menu is:
Roast Pork Loin,
Mashed potatoes,
and steamed corn...

Our hot humid weather was 
blown away overnight by
a strong cold front;
winds from the north
brought us low humidity
and sunshine-y 
low temps today...;)))

All in all a wonderful day--
I hope yours is going well, too

Hugs, Julierose
