 I started to piece this  in March . provided it by Stitch'n Tree Quilts.Click on pictures to see all the details of this. I loved making this  and reading about each  woman,

Every month I made a block  some 10 1/2 and  15 1/2 blocks. It ended in  November . I have 3 borders to add to it yet. What a experience it was. All made from scraps.

Every day in December I had to make 4 patch, pin wheel, flying geese blocks to put it together.It took me all of December to put this together all instructions were great,telling how to press each seam.

I had a wonderful birthday this year. Dick took me to Red Lobster for my clam dinner the day before my birthday and for Breakfast on my birthday he took me to Huddles for breakfast and lunch at Arby' and Elaine had my favorite Taco Salad Dinner so I did not cook or wash dishes all day.

Then I got gift certificates I could not  believe.  Walmart  from Clark, Jo Ann from Jared, Walmart from Justin, Red Lobster from Eric and a pottery bowl from Natalyn that she made  herself. Beautiful Green that will look great in my sewing room. Now just think of all the shopping I will do.

This skillet my mom used to fry an egg in when I was sick so I would eat it.
  Have an egg laying in skillet so you can see how small it is.
 This is the bottom of it. Probably over 80 years old,
 You can see it has a patent  number on it and it is made in USA not China.

Adulterer Block 35

 An adulterer  in Rome was stoned to death but The Pharisees knew Jesus would not be able to respond to the question of adultery without breaking Roman law . Jesus said Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her. One by one they all walked  away. Jesus turned to the woman and said,   Go and do not sin again .


You will have to click on the picture to see the design of the material. The queen brought gifts to Solomon's temple gold, spices, precious stones and wood for King Solomon's Temple.

Eric, my son, took us to Gasoline Alley in Bath, Ohio and I choose the Cat Fish Sandwich.
This is a unusual place. They have license plates, gas pumps, soap box derby car, bicycles hanging from ceiling, Pictures of   TV and movie Stars ,good year blimp, Gasoline signs .It is very nosy because every one is talking  loud,  and the food is delicious and every table was  taken.   The prices are reasonable. 

 I lifted up the lettuce and tomatoes so you can see how big those fish are. Also look at all the french fries  I  got and  I also got a dish of coleslaw with the dinner. Also a dill pickle. You can have FF or onion rings. They have 57 different kind of sandwiches, soup, salads, pizza, Desserts.

44 inch Musky

You could fish a lifetime and not enjoy the experience my son Clark did when he caught a 44 inch Musky at Austin Lake in Michigan. The fish actually ended up jumping completely out of the water and into the boat. No net was required to land the Musky. This article was in the Trophy Trials magazine in 2013. He  was also in the International  Angler magazine just now about the Crappy he caught this September  for the world Record I showed picture before. Click on picture to see this.

Salome danced  for Herod and he told her to ask for anything she wanted and he would grant it. She ask her mother and asked What shall I ask? Her mother said The Head of John the baptist. She told the king she wanted the head of John the Baptist on a platter. He ordered his solder to do so.

Pilate's wife Block 33. Pilate worried that he might be convicting an innocent man, but his wife said Have nothing to do with that righteous man, for I have suffered much over him today in a dream.
