The quilt shown above was a joint effort by me and my mother. About 30 years ago I bought the quilt top and, I must admit, some cheap embroidery floss to do the roses in pink. For some reason I didn't like it and didn't get very far on the embroidery. About 10 years ago my mother told me to bring it to her with new floss. She took out all the old floss and re-embroidered the entire thing. I've worked on the hand-quilting off and on since then. It is almost finished. I am determined to finish it this winter.

My daddy was an avid woodworker for years. I think he made about 6 cedar chest and loads of other items, both large and small. So, maybe it is in the genes. He got me interested in family history, too. Come along on my new adventures into retirement. Let's have some FUN!
