Oh Say Can You See

for the first time in a long time
yesterday Mom started helping with my little quilt

I put the patches on the table
and she started fiddling with them
she loves to count
so I told her I needed nine of each color

I'm going to have to cut out some more patches this morning
we're almost out of red!
these were cut from a previously disassembled project
 some day to be a flag...

Happy July 13th!

many years ago I was married on this day
it was a Friday
not the best decision I ever made
no regrets
everything that happens in my life has made me "me"
 okay maybe one regret...
I didn't stay in Colorado

It looks like your mom is doing a good job. It's nice to include her in something she likes to do.

Looking forward to that primitive American flag and so glad your mom is back in good spirits. Seems you are in a good place now too. I've overcome the death of my first husband when I was 39 and a divorce after my 2nd husband didn't want to be married any longer. Both of those have made me who I am too.

Still happy to see you pulling loops.

Happy your mom is getting in the swing of things!! Nothing like the red, white, and blue to keep her busy!! Well...happy almost anniversary...I made one of those "not the best" decisions when I was 18...lasted all of three months!! Everything happens for a reason and it all seems to work out!

Nice to see mom playing with fabric!
I got married in July, too, about a hundred years! Not my smartest move either, but I have 2 wonderful boys because of it.
