I have lost my joy and optimism the last few days, and have been in kind of a funk. The United States can no longer be considered as President Reagan so eloquently likened to a 'Beacon Of Light, or a 'City Set On a Hill.' I usually do not get involved publicly on this sort of thing, but I have felt such sadness the last few days. It is never appropriate to be insulting and unkind.
Over the week end Bruce and I treated Abbie and Chad to a concert on the mountainside at the Deer Valley ski resort in Park City. Our daughter had a birthday...….and we celebrated. I love out door concerts in the mountains, and it felt good to be gathered with all of the positive and happy energy. We danced tapped our toes and clapped our hands to the music of Abba.
This is the remaining crazy quilt which I have to share. I have a few close ups for you to see the exotic fabrics and stunning needle work of the creator.
Exquisite! This little bird is fabulous!
The museum is located in Lincoln, Nebraska, and so are the Blackberry Primitive wool girls. We met Tonya and Cindy for dinner, but prior to that we visited the beautiful wool in Tonya's home. Tonya, has many unique early American pieces. It was a pleasure to see it all first hand.
Blackberry Primitives does all of the wool for Maggie Bononimi. I just completed a couple of Maggie's design's.
"Pray when you feel like worrying.
Give thanks when you feel like complaining.
Keep going when you feel like quitting."
Some very good advise for me right now.
