I have so enjoyed getting to know the quilters on the Stash ring. A truly diverse group of ladies with a common thread.

I've been thinking about my cyberfriends lately, and those with whom I have formed a close bond without ever meeting. I smiled all day because of a long 'chat' with Sally last night. I will miss getting to meet her again this year as, once again, I won't be able to attend the Retreat in the Middle, or RiM, in June. Next year!!

This small quilt was from the Thimbleberries Club 2003. I don't like it very much, but it's done! I gave away two of the kits to my secret quilter that year, and there's one more upstairs somewhere. But each quilt is worth doing if I learn something from it ...

Today it rained a little and kept things nice and cool. The hot hot summer is on its way, so I'm enjoying these days. A big project was finished up at work. One more to go, and then hopefully things will get back to normal, whatever that is.

Egg salad for supper. It's time to go to the market again! I'll stop tomorrow after work. With gas at $3.35/gallon today, I'm going to combine trips as much as I can.

My gratitude today is David, my manicurist. He always manages to make my hands look good, no matter what I've done to them! I just ignore his "tsk-tsking" when I walk in! LOL

How fun to see that Thimbleberries quilt, Vicky. One of my PIGS is that same quilt with those same fabrics!
