Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Last evening Sue, Kris and I went "ITP" to hear Chris in Decatur discussing his new book. We got there early (of course) and plopped ourselves right up front. All of the girls had read his most current column about his memories of their grandmother. Unfortunately my daughters do not have many memories at all of Irene-first because she was living in Fla and secondly she had dementia. But we did talk of her better times and the girls remembered a couple of times they were together with their older cousins. Isn't it amazing what strikes a cord in our memories. Chris and his older brother were always very funny. At any rate, I don't know where I was going with this but.......I guess I really am just so happy that Chris is successful and still a wonderful kid. His Nonnie would be so proud of him.

And now Sat. is here and I am determined do do something after I finish the usual mundane chores this weekend. I can't get into the orange crush mystery quilt. I tried cutting some of the triangles in step 2 and screwed them up. It may just have to wait until next month's sisters for a little help from Gretchen and Becky. Then there is the back of the Far East quilt-don't have a clue about how to proceed with that one either! I need to begin to think about the quilt for Kathy's new grandbaby but he is not due until Aug so I have time.... So what to do??? I have these 4 piles of the most current acquisitons sitting next to the computer in the livingroom-won't even discuss the condition of the sewing room. (That is probably what I should do). I think I'll have some coffee and mull on and fondle some of this yardage for some inspiration!
