my last picture of my bff
Before my best friend Cathy passed, she had come over so I could help her baste a quilt. It was a gift for a wedding. Well, she passed before it could be quilted, so I am going to finish it up for her - it's so large I decided to hand quilt it, as the arthritis in my neck won't allow me to machine quilt big quilts anymore. There's another one just like it that she pieced for her daughter, I'll be hand quilting that one as well.
I'm also still helping out with her house, they're going to have an estate sale next week. They've been very fortunate in already selling the house. An answered prayer.
Last night, all my neighbors and I went to city hall, to block a proposed senior care facility built onto a house in our little neighborhood. Right in the middle of the block. We won! It would change the neighborhood dramatically, and we like our little "country in the city" neighborhood just the way it is. There are tons of other sites he could use. Yay for us!
