Rain, rain go away....

    come again another day...  so we can play!    This sweet little poem was my mothers.   Lester and Lyla are in the neighborhood looking for new digs, soon there will be a  family of  five or six.   Will they choose a place by the bike path and creek in our back yard? I am sure "Chester" will be delighted!    Recently, Marge and I attended the IA/IL Quilt & Study Group at the Historical Village in Kalona, Iowa. Their theme was  "Celebration" --- celebrating their 10th anniversary!        Sharing five of 60 vintage quilts.        Marge created the above design for The Des Moines Quilt Guild Quilt Show, celebrating 30 years! Lots of thought, planning, fabric choices, piecing, appliqueing and quilting by many members in the guild.        This is "Minnie" made as a "Thank You" for Marge, from me!      One more herb embroidery quilt is finished!
