there is a lovely book called Once Upon A River by Dianne Setterfield.  One of the main characters is a photographer is rural England when photography was just getting started.  I love the book for many reasons but it is also interesting to read about the process at the time.  the photographer had to prepare the chemicals, apply it to the glass, as well as developing them.

She died when I was 17 but my whole childhood I thought of her as a sourpuss.  

In my family, it was my grandfather who was stoic/mean/ornery and a few more adjectives I could mention.  Still, I can almost understand because he came to this country alone as a boy, basically as a stowaway, having "attached" himself to a very large family who was making the crossing from Finland.  He arrived in the Port of Galveston (Texas) on his own, without money, friends or knowledge of English.  He scratched his way through the Texas/Oklahoma oil fields in the early 1900's, and ended up being a fairly wealthy man....but still mostly stoic/mean/ornery and a few more adjectives I could mention!

I am at retreat a few days.  Here is the scrap top I got put together. I have had the blocks made a couple years ago.  I’m excited to empty this tub!

That's a very nice use of scraps, Ellen.  I really like the clever way you used every morsel of fabric and made a lovely large quilt top. It's so easy to piece and I can see a beginning quilter having a good time working with your idea.

Another great bunch of quilts you've shared with us, Lynne.  I'm really liking the aqua and brown version of "Beads" quilt a lot but the very bright "every-color-in-the-scrap-basket" beauty hanging to the right of it wins the prize for the day!

Oh great job!  I 2nd Judy's vote - you've given me another idea - put it in my idea OneNote for future.  Wasn't the bead pattern great?  I'll definitely be making that one again.
