My grandmother always said that you should have some yellow in your bouquet.
Speaking of my grandmother. She had this quilt in a drawer and when my grandfather died I claimed it. My sister has it at her place and she took a picture of it. It is signed Elvira Rossmann 1887. Elvira was my grandmother's grandmother.
She also took pictures of each of the squares so maybe someday she will share them with us.
Speaking of quilts. My friend Su who has been so great and taken me to the grocery store during my hiatus from driving posted this quilt on her Facebook page
The opagi quilt ... of Hogan Itoyan Tanka
(The Whale), along with elk teeth and chanupa were accepted by
Chief Golden Light Eagle in ceremony on Thursday evening this
week. It's official, the Iowa All Nations Sun Dance is a GO!
You can read her story of the opaqi gift on her Web site. It is awesome."
Just one more thing. Found this picture of the Popes on-line
Pope Francis rocks! A humble man who does not put up with the ostentation of his predecessor. I am beginning to admire him. Now we shall see if he humanizes the church.
