You are so right. One is done, the other one I found hasn't been quilted yet, it's only the top.

Do you have a sewing machine? Quilting isn't that hard, though it isn't my thing. Get some quilt batting and a sheet that fits the back. Or maybe find someone who quilts, there are many who love it, and would be happy to finish it for you. Good luck, these are treasures!

I saw a post on Pinterest where the person used masking tape on the cloth as a seam guide. Made sense to me!

You could frame the one that is just a top. Then you could hang it on the wall as art.

Do we need one of these? The price starts at the $800 mark and goes all the way up to the $1,000+ mark.

I like the idea of a sink. But, I like my front loader. I really wish I had a laundry sink in the basement near my washer and dryer.

*No pressure.* Really. So they say.

Once I've re acclimated to our home elevation I'll post pics. I'm just very tired.We drove pretty much straight home. So my body's achy.Legs are hurting.By the looks of the house I've been missed. Our dogs insisted we keep the bedroom door open all night. They don't trust Dad anymore. He's in the dog house (again) with them. Poor Dad.

Sorry I missed you on the road Princess. Maybe next time.
Next time plan on visiting Devil's Tower and I can meet you there. Glad you had a good trip.

I'm cooking up the neighbor's purloined rhubarb. Still looking for the right texture, I might have it now. I let it dry out overnight.

Next I plan to make up another batch of homemade Kahlua, using the icky Newman's Special Blend Keurig cups that we find makes undrinkable swill, but they came with the machine.

What are you doing?

I'm still looking for the recipe I used the last time, GG. Wish me luck! Last time I made it I had a whole bunch of hotel packets of machine coffee, we were out of Kahlua, and I made it up using vodka, lots of strong coffee, brown sugar, a vanilla bean. It turned out really good, and a lot cheaper than store bought here. We can get it really cheap in Mexico, half the price that we pay here, and I'm a cheapskate.

I'll send you the recipe when I find it.

That would be great! I love Kahlua. It's expensive here, too. But it's great in Rachael Ray's Quick Tiramisu
