Boy, it's been a long time since I last posted. What a crazy week! A sick husband... a nine year old with a tweeked neck...two trips to the chiropractor for her...counting $$ each day for the school fundraising event...still more counting this week...
One thing that we did that was out of the ordinary for us was attend an Arena Football League game on Friday. Nashville Kats vs. Utah Blaze in the Delta Center. It was even better that the Blaze won!!! I was telling my friends this morning that it was like watching our boys play out in the front yard when they were younger. Fast paced and fun! Not to mention that they made up new rules. LOL! I'm not much of a football fan, but I would definitely go to another game!
Well, I can wait for spring no longer! Since any hint of my flowering bulbs are under inches of new snow, I decided to pull out my tulip quilt. This quilt was made for my mother in 1956 by the ladies in her church congregation. I saw it for the first time two years ago when my mother gave it to me while cleaning out the basement after a flood. My parents' marriage only lasted five or six years, and I guess she's had this quilt in storage ever since. It has a few stains, but overall it is in pretty good condition. It must be a double bed size, as it barely fits over the top of my king size bed.
Here are a couple of close up shots of the blocks.
