This is a picture of my friend Sylvia from the 2010 Alex Anderson Retreat. It was the last time we had together, I wasn't able to go last year. We were however making great plans for the coming retreat in Sept. Sylvia passed away last Wednesday. I can't even express how much I miss her.

We met at retreat about 10 years ago. I am terrible at dates. After the first year we became room mates and great friends. We shared our lives with each other through email and phone calls through out the year and always looked forward to our once a year reunion.

My Dad told me that you were lucky if you had one or two true friends in your life and of course he was right, seems he always was. I consider myself very lucky to have had Sylvia as my friend. I am glad that she is at peace but I will miss her always!

Another Top Quilted

Tennessee Waltz is finished. This one was started a long time ago, I'm glad it is finished. Seems like that is the way of most of my quilt tops. Just waiting to be quilted. Don't know what is up with the text color and the underline but at least I can enter some text. Having a bit of a problem with that this evening.

This little guy kept me company while I stitched down the binding. They usually don't hang around too long but he watched until I went in the house and then disappeared.

Of course Lucky gave the quilt his comfort test and seemed to approve.
