Romania

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."

Detail

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.

Life

Life ...
Paul just happened to be at the right spot when I asked to get a picture of Justin and Rachel, the new bride and groom.

Maybe Quinten can help get the radio controlled plane going.

Home ... sweet home!


We have 4 Pekin and 4 Mallard ducks that we enjoy.

... as a Quilter
I've finally finished a quilt for Josiah Paul.

He was right pleased to be able to take it home.

I'm starting another quilt for "PeaPicker" using the scraps of his daddy's ties. It's taking a little longer as I need to do more piecing and trying to make the best use of the scraps.
