At the Beach


Pebbles in the sand there are
Round because they’ve come so far.
At this time it feels so free
To be standing at the sea.
The beach stretches far and wide
Ready for the coming tide.
Treasures in the sand you wish
And there it is, one starfish.
– Connie Moore

Comic Blast 4th of July

Remember as a kid getting your first firework sparklers and your mom yelling “Don’t run with the sparklers”! You’d watch it burn down to the end of the silver stuff and think (Oh man, it’s over already)?

What about Glow worms? When lit they oozed out … I don’t know what. You were left with these long, charred, cheese puff things. You saw the flames and smelled the smoke. Cool man!

July 5, on the ground lie little pieces of paper and red sticks from the — cover your ears — bottle rockets.

One year we did not have more fireworks so my dad lit a road flair in the back yard. We sat around and watched the awesomeness.

May watching bright colored lights give us strength.


Blue and White Tea Quilt

Quilt throw

Machine quilted cotton

I have made a few quilts over the years and I thought I would share some. This Blue and White Tea quilt my sister and I made for a family member. This person likes tea, blue and white china and a splash of bright color here-and-there. At the fabric store we picked out all the blues that would go with a tea cup and pot fabric.

This quilt is constructed of squares and occasional four triangles making up a square. To give it a slightly formal touch we made the edging and binding out of a simple stripe.
