Summer of adventures and making memories

two wishes I have for my youngest grand daughter, Olivia during her visit this year.  Here she is front row center as the cast poses and pauses for all the proud parent, grand parents, aunts etc at the end of the production they presented on the last day of a week long drama camp she attended.

Last weekend, she was very excited to visit  the aquarium near Tampa, the home of the dolphin with the artificial tail, "Fish Tales" movie staring the dolphin and Morgan Freeman as well as say she had put her feet in the Gulf.

She collected shell and  got to renew her connection to her cousin who lives on the Gulf side of the state.

This week she is in swim camp and loving it.  Next week gymnastics.
 And what is a blog update with out a look at my latest painted quilt.   The flower is not complex.   In creating this piece my priority was toward working out  how to make a more visually interesting background.  I am happy with the result.
The piece has no name and measures approx 40" wide by 45" long.
In answer to the question put to me by some about where I get the wool felt blend that I use as a stabilizer.  I buy it at Jo-Ann's with the biggest %  off coupons I have to cut the cost of using it.  It comes 36 inches wide but butts together easily when you need a wider width.
