This is the other quilt that intrigued me at Road to California 2004. What first caught my eye were the pomegranates. I appliqued those once and loved doing them, and haved picked up more patterns using them but never got around to them. Another one with tiny pieces, but was a real beauty up close and personal. Wish I had thought to write down the quiltmakers' names on these quilts!
I called the management company today about the smell in the attic over the garage. She said my neighbor complained, too. Might be a squirrel or other such varmit that got up there and kicked the bucket. She said she would get the pest control company up there on Friday to check it out. I would HATE to have that job!! I figure in this heat by then it'll be totally decomposed - or at least I hope so.
Jeanne, it was cooler here today, too. I actually went for a short stroll at lunchtime. Found the sweet olive tree! Smelled wonderful!
Tonight, to avoid coming home before I had to (don't tell Daisy I said that!), I went over to Target and walked around. I only had to pick up one thing, but you know how that is!!
My gratitude today is a real peaceful feeling. I know I've posted that before, but after several years of unhappiness, it feels so wonderful to walk into a peaceful home. Oh, another gratitude: the little duck that Sally gave me. I smile every time I look at it! I just saw it and smiled big time!
