I was away a lot this summer. Shortly after I wrote my last post in June, we made an emergency trip to Florida to see my sister who was in intensive care. She is doing better now, but it will be a long recuperation and it is one of those scary touch and go things. Please keep her in your prayers.
You can see that the Gulf crews have been really working hard to keep the BP oil off the beaches. They are really white and pristine. However, the water is quite murky and leaves an invisible residue on your skin. Hopefully it won’t take eons to return to normal.
When we returned, it was back to work, catching up, and working frantically to finish “THE” quilt.
Then we were away again to the Black Hills of South Dakota, and then on to Colorado to spend time with my son. My DD, her DH, and her DS and DD came along as well. It was a bit of a family gathering. Only missing was my son and his family back home here in Chicago.
Tomorrow I will post photos of the quilt I made and delivered to my son in Colorado. Thanks to all of you who made inquiries as to my disappearance. I had no access to internet service while away. It’s good to be back. Can’t wait to have some time to surf all of your blogs as well…..I know I have missed a LOT.
