I got a little of the wool pieces cut and some baskets for the scrappy basket quilt, but other than that it was just one of those days – same old stuff other than a concert in the evening. My little brother is retiring from teaching. He has been the band instructor for the last 21 years at the local school that my kids went to – he started there after they left. There was a reception for him before the final concert and then the final concert of the year. Seeing as this was a special occasion – his retirement 3 of my brothers that live in the northwest corner of the state came down to see it.
Here is a photo of me with 4 of my little brothers – yes I’m older than all of them – there were 12 of us, still 10 of us so this is just half – I have 3 sisters, two older, one younger and there are two more brothers that couldn’t make it down also. We got this photo of the five of us before the concert started. Jeff the one in the tux is the retiring teacher obviously – he is 11 and a half years younger than me – next to him is David his senior by only 2 years – me and next to me brother Larry a little younger than me and Pat younger still. And if I didn’t dye my hair I would be whiter than all of them LOL white/gray hair seems to run in the family.
11 more baskets now cut out – here in the prepping stage – for the Scrappy Baskets that have no name at this moment – well need thought on it while working on them for the – next year or so!
The blue wool is cut out and sitting in place for the Midnight Garden block– I still need to figure exact placement but I will do that after I get the stems in place.
