ides of march

i think i'm in one of those sluggish cycles... so if i owe you a phone call or email, i probably DO know it and just haven't done anything about that knowing.  but i will... really i will.

this is a photo of a quilt i'm working on.  the idea came from one of my (many)quilting books
that showed what they called "liberated houses"... meaning they hold very little likeness to reality, very primitive, and using lots of color.  fits me to a T (or tea? or tee?).  i ended up doing some of the blocks with trees and a couple with people (kids?).  this will be my nap quilt and the next one in the Q will be Jim's nap quilt.

here's the latest addition to our tradition of a photo of Anna and me whenever we get together.  we've been doing this for YEARS, and last time i visited her in Boise she had an array of them out for my amusement!  it's like having an index tab in a journal... each photo brings up a segment of time, history and memories!  i sure am glad we've kept on doing this thru all these
years!!  we've decided we should go back to Victoria BC and repeat a set of photos we took there and we'll have a "then" and a "how'd we get this damn old?".  actually, when i get my new printer and have a scanner that fucking works with this computer, i'll scan the "then".
