Very good advice about labeling photos. I wish I would have done better when the kids were little but at the time you think you will surely remember. A few years ago I divided up all photos for our three kids and would have to count the candles on the birthday cakes to figure out the year. I wonder what will happen to all the gazillion digital photos we have on our phones and computers?
That is lovely, Dee! Be careful with your hands--they're the only ones you have! :D
Oh, my, what a lot of piecing and quilting you have done to make that doozy of a quilt! Congratulations on finishing a Bonnie Hunter Mystery.
I will assume it has an excellent label on the back documenting date, name of creator and place.
Wow congratulations on getting that done. It is beautiful. The closest I have ever come to making one of her quilts is trying to pull stash and scraps and realizing I would have to buy more fabric.
Lovely quilt, I'm sure you are glad to have it finished so you can enjoy it.

We drove to Colorado yesterday and I was appliquing my cubes to the background and made great progress. I went about a third of the way around the shape.
So, you’re reunited with your long arm?
I know! fortunately I have an expert in the family - DD has been advising me, also going to her physical therapy co-workers for suggestions. One suggested wearing a wrist brace at night when it flared up a couple of months ago. 2 nights later my index finger was much improved after weeks of pain. who would have thought a wrist brace would make a difference to my finger. That's why I was so concerned that it got worse again out of the blue. Several nights of machine sewing and it is back to normal-ish. still some pain across the back of my hand when typing - could be these 12 hour days at the computer -
impressive! congrats on finishing a Bonnie hunter mystery - definitely an accomplishment.
POV. Well, I just stood there with my cell phone and kept backing up until I had a fairly decent shot. I'm down to 5'9" but that's still tall so I had good angle.. LOL I've lost a bit of height with age.
I've also been known to stand on a stepladder for a better view. but I'm older now so I don't do that as often
I quilted the t-shirt quilt on Monday. Going back to New Mexico on Friday but I will be back in Colorado soon. Just have some loose ends to tie up.
