A Special Month - part 2

Last year I learned that the average age of  Nobel winner is 67.  A year ago that seemed such an optimistic fact.  Well, today I am 68.  So it goes.  No prize for me.  We are in San Francisco and coming home tomorrow.  We celebrated John's 78th birthday Thursday in northern California.  We may not be Nobel winners, but we are keenly aware that every day is big prize.  We are so thankful for our health and our mental acuity  ***knocking wood*** 

I'm doing a short demo on bag making at my guild meeting next Sunday.  And then I am making a Sloan Bag, one of my favorite patterns, for a friend.  She has chosen the feature fabric on the left of the above picture.  And then?  Back to SewPowerful purses.  I only sent in 6 for the October deadline.  The next deadline in February.  I hope to certainly double and perhaps triple that number.

This fabric is sort of indigo like and I love that. You have such a legacy of quilts made for friends and family, Donna. I really like your words about each day we are well and busy doing what we enjoy, at our ages, is the real prize in this life. Couldn't agree more!
