My husband has always liked this photo of me. He took it when we were both 22 in 1978. It’s funny that this old photo is so similar to the new picture that I posted on May 28 showing the new hairdo. Steve says I still look the same. Isn’t he sweet! I, however, can see the difference time has made.
I got a haircut today! That in itself is not unusual because I get my hair cut every 4 weeks like clockwork. But today I got lots of hair cut off! Henri, who has cut my hair for more than 13 years, agreed that it was time for a new look. Little did he know that this is, in fact, an old look for me. This is what my hair looked like when I was in my 20s.
I keep forgetting to share this news. When I was teaching in Sarasota, FL, the ladies there shared with me a sample of a peanut butter that has 75% less fat. It was pretty tasty! Not as wonderful as full-fat peanut butter, but close. It’s called PB2 and you can find it online at Bell Plantation.
My very good friend, Laurie, is in charge of the garage sale at her church every June. The money they raise goes to mission work. Spring is an excellent time to organize so I usually have things to give Laurie. I always have clothes and sometimes I have fabric. The local quilters love it!
I am continually surprised at the size of the USA! It is hot summer in north Texas right now but it is spring in Hartford, Connecticut. I’ve been in Connecticut since last Wednesday, lecturing and teaching. Quilting is alive and well here! Isn’t it nice that quilters are the same no matter where you are?
I’m home and unpacked and have been thinking back on market. I have to say that my strongest memories are of the people I got to visit with there. It’s always nice to re-connect with friends that I only see once or twice a year, and this year was no exception.
I also worked in the C&T booth, telling shop owners about our new block of the month, Aunt Millie’s Garden. It hung behind where the sales folks worked on their orders. Part of the quilt was hidden, but that didn’t seem to matter! It’s too bad Linda wasn’t there to hear the lovely things people said about her quilt – but I’ll do my best to share their comments with her.
