Romania ... Continued

This rainbow appeared over the neighbors barn after a cooling shower on a hot day.

It was a fun, noisy, jibberish evening when we hosted the Hope Youth Girls for pizza. Most of them are now between 30 and 35 years old.

Clematis on a gate.

A hand crank well.

These flowers are arranged in a 7 point star like the shape of the fort in Alba Iulia (White Julia).

These locks are on the drawbridge to the fort in Alba Iulia. Make a promise and throw away the key.

We enjoyed a self guided tour of the museum at the fort.

Inside the museum.

There were statues made to the goddess Diana and Jupiter.

Inside the Orthodox Church.

Outside in the moat area we had a taste of Romanian (sausage) mici with bread and mustard.

Today was national holiday. We watched the changing of the guards.

I love the slower pace of life in the villages with time to visit neighbors and friends.

How do they know which wire goes to what?

I'm thinking art!

We took a short drive out into the country through the next village.

Adi & Ariana hosted an open house for their new ministry "Hospice Eliana."

Paul and Adan helped get the center ready for the event.

Over 100 people, including doctors, nurses, mayor, priest, pastors, professors, family, and friends attended.

The spectacular array of food was all donated.

Life, Zinnias, a Wedding, and Ducks

Life ...
I think these are baby wrens nestled down in the Bohemian Jew right outside our front door.

These zinnias are so pretty in Amy's back yard.

Congratulations and Best Wishes! Stan and Carla are now Mr. and Mrs.

I hope you don't tire of seeing our ducks. I don't!

Life, Ashton's Art Quilt, and Daddy's Ties II

We have enjoyed our ducks quite a bit. They have gradually gotten used to the pond but are still afraid of people.

Kirby, Stacy, and Teryn drive motorcycles like acrobats.

... as a Quilter
Ashton finally finished his art quilt. He calls it "Going to the Car Show."


Folding and fusing the binding to the quilt.

Here he is stitching the fused binding down.

I'm liking how "Daddy's Ties II" for Mr. PeaPicker is turning out.

MQA - Patches Workshop

Recently I taught my "Patches" class in Jackson for Mississippi Quilt Association. These nine students were a fun group and did wonderful work.

I'm always thrilled with the talent and creativity of the group.
