Q is for Quilt:

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy ~ Kathy Matthews
The quilt on the wall used to belong to my great-aunt and is handmade.  The one on the bed used to be on my Grandma T.'s guest bed, but I think she probably bought it at the Bon Marche.

This cool quilt was handmade for Cary and me for our wedding gift from my BFF Patty and her family.  It is now hanging in our home office/craft room.  Patty designed, sewed and quilted it.  Thanks, Patty, I love and appreciate it very much.

Watery Wednesday:  

These pictures were taken in Las Vegas a few years ago at the fountain in front of the Eiffel Tower at Paris in Las Vegas.

Back when I was skinnier.

Awwwwwwwwwww, nothing like Vegas! We stay at the MGM when we go there. I love the movie ambiance inside the hotel/casino.

And I must add your quilting post above this is fantastic.
