Back to Tillie’s Story

Hope to finish the applique today on this “page” of the book for “Tillie’s Story” — the page that illustrates the coming to America of my grandfather (Tillie’s father) in 1874.  I got side-tracked by making a quilt to commemorate our son’s fist vote Nov. 3 and about reading the obituaries every morning.  Yesterday I took the day off to fulfill my volunteer duties as a RSV-Patrol.  The Patrol is sponsored by the City of Toledo Police Division and the RSVP program of the Area Office on Aging.  The Patrol volunteers visit older adults who are basically homebound to check on them and see if things are going ok for them and visit awhile.  I’m also starting to “noodle” about a quilt I might do to enter in the “celebrate Spring” show at the Internaional Quilt Association conference in April in Cincinnati.

About QuiltToonist

I'm a news junkie and have opinions about everything! I consider myself a folk artist because I have no formal art training and use the sewing skills I learned many moons ago to accomplish the fiber art I seem to have to express.
