I love Crazy Quilt. My love started the first time I saw the quilts that prairie women stitched together from scraps of fabrics of old clothes. I love to look at Victorian Quilts made of rich fabrics and stitched with beautiful embroidery and threads and laces. Sometimes I have even bought fabric with Crazy Quilt in mind, but I must admit, never laces and rarely fancy fabric.
And here is a pic I couldn't resist added to the post. Corey comes home from work and sacks on the couch before he showers and waits for supper. You will usually find his dog somewhere very near, or like here, right on top of Corey. Tyson never found a place where he couldn't fall asleep. It's a joke around here because he often falls asleep while just sitting there, or while propping his head on the couch or chair.
These guys are a hoot. They will be running around and playing hard. Then all at once you realize it's quiet and there they are. Fell asleep while wrestling.
Saturday Morning Tyson had a hugely swelled eye lid. About the size of a golf ball. There was no matter in it and he didn't seem to be wincing in pain. I thought maybe he was stung by a bee. We decided to watch it and take him to our Vet Monday ...or take him to the doggy ER if necessary. How weird that he woke up on Sunday with no swelling at all. We always wish our dogs could talk,
If I follow you on Facebook and you happen to notice that I am not commenting or posting there it's because the political BS has started already and I'm steering away for now.
When I was looking for a quote the other day, I came across one that rings so true for me personally right now. "WHAT YOU PERMIT, YOU PROMOTE" I think it is true about most of the world situation right now. One of my favorite columnist is Leonard Pitts. One of his readers asked him "What Can I Do"? That's always the question. Most of the time we feel like we can't make a difference personally. Well, thank you all for your comments on my last post. It really brings to light that just being kind can make a difference.
Do you know who Rhonda Rousey is? We follow the MMA fights. Mostly because Corey trained and fought a few amateur fights and won. I was so glad to see Rhonda win over Bethe Correia who made shocking and too personal comments leading up to the fight. Rhonda's mother encouraged her to end it fast and boy did she...34 seconds. Rhonda has been called the top athlete in the country by very knowledgeable people. Fighting is dangerous but you have to admire someone that works that hard to be the best.
I take inspiration today from this:
