  22. Indeed...I remember the work of Madi and the quilting. Marvelous to have seen it again.
    And the photo of your honey's aunt with her younger brother holding her hand will melt a heart of steel!!

    I'm not sure by your comment that you left me if you read the part of the turtle being eaten alive [not the same turtle in my other photo]...but that kind of wildlife is a bit 'hard to take'.

  23. So nice to see all the photos from the big party for Aunt Catherine - she looks wonderful for 100!!! And her brother too. Those quilts are just amazing, especially the one of you, Madi. Mom has always wanted to learn how to quilt.

    Happy weekend.
