The Red and Black Quilt

I have finally finished the red and black quilt for our niece! This has been a fun quilt to build. I will not even talk about how imperfect I have made it, but will say that a lot of love went into it.

The backing is a red tonal fabric and the binding is a red and black wonky stripe.

Love the crinkly-ness of it fresh out of the wash and dryer. We'll deliver this one tomorrow and I believe she will be pleased.

Here it is again, just sort of rumpled up on the porch swing. Doesn't it look cuddly?

We are hunkered down in the August heat here in Houston. Nothing new, you just have to live through it! Thank God for air conditioning!

As you can see, small chickens take up a good part of my attention these days. They are just endlessly amusing and entertaining to me.

My young friend Buddy is impetuous at all times and last month he rushed out past me, knocking my knee sideways. Not good. I've been going to physical therapy. Thank God, there is no major damage, just a strained tendon. No fun, but with continued diligence on my part to continue the exercises, all will be well.

I do hope all is well with you and that you have plenty to amuse, entertain and make you happy!

Hugs and kisses,
