Hi Deanna!

Today I had an e-mail from one of my closest high school buddies, Deanna Tumey. She was maid of honor at our wedding. We had lost touch over the years.

We are having our 46th class reunion next month so some of our classmates are busy trying to track down those they haven't heard from. So now we are reconnected. Deanna has retired to Cape Cod - now I have a really good excuse for a fall vacation out that direction.... And she didn't know that we are living in Paducah, Kentucky, and that I was a quilter. But she does now.

We talked more than an hour and I can't wait for our next phone call.

Deanna, I bet you never thought you would be subject of one of my Blogs.

The Squirrel Chase

We have a lot of baby squirrels in our yard Tuffy is busy patrolling our property. He knows what belongs and what doesn't, and he tries to keep the "invaders" away.

Yesterday, he was letting the young squirrels know that this was his territory.

Okay, so where did he go?

I know he went this way...

And the chase was on, and Tuffy took off up the tree after the squirrel. Of course the squirrel got away - went to a higher branch and sat and chattered to Tuffy for several minutes. Don't you wonder if Tuffy understood that message?

Red, White and Blue Quilts

I had no idea that I had so many red, white, and blue quilts until I decided to show some of them to you. Several of these quilts came from quilts that were auctioned after 9/11 and AQS asked quilters to make blocks and quilts to be auctioned off to raise funds for those affected in New York. I purchased several on eBay at that auction.

I hope you enjoy seeing my quilts and I've sprinkled in some of the patriotic designs that I included in my pattern book called Designs on Freedom, published by the American Quilter's Society.
