poka dot

I started and stoped this quilt last summer. I had to hand cute all the squares, each of them are like 3 inches and it takes 4 to make a 5 inch square. Its going to take forever for me to get it done. I just made the strips with the white. At first I didn't like it but as I keep push forward Its growing on me.


I have been wanting to learn how to jam for along time. Raspberry jam is one of my favorites. As my in laws were making some. I told her how much I wanted to learn and the next day they bought the stuff and told me to come with some clean jars. They also invited Tawnie and Alena to make some. After we finished up with all the jars we made raspberry shakes with some jam. I think Paul has made a shake almost every night since. It was so fun to do it together. I know I could have look on line to see how to do it. I think it was more than learning it was also sharing like our ancestor did. Another dieing art like quilting.

A long friendship

Dayna my mother in law has this old friend that is super sick with cancer. Dayna ask if I could make her a happy quilt in a week to give her friend before she left for home back east. well this is what I came up with, I really like it. I am super shocked that I did it all in that short of time. Dayna is a wonderful and kind person. I hope I am as lucky to find a friend like her that would stick by and be a life long friend. Wait, scratch that I hope I am like Dayna valiant and loving until the end.
