Bart's Home

Bart and Yuka are married. We are ecstatic.

Now they have much to do so that Yuka can come live in the States with Bart for a while. Bart fell more in love with Japan this trip and I have no doubt they will live there at some point. Guess I'd better get set to travel. But, since I've always loved things Japanese and have always wanted to visit there, this will not be a hardship.

And although I would not call it a "thing Japanese," I also want to visit Disney Sea. Better start saving.

It's the MLK holiday weekend. As usual, I will be spending it grading Bill of Rights Scrapbooks. This will definitely be the last year we do this project. In fact, I'm putting a note in my lesson plans NOT to repeat this next year.

Over the winter break I finished the Bent Creek mini sampler with the bird and the square button berries. I thought the decorative stiches the pattern called for detracted from the rest of the design so I simplified them. I'm happy with the result. When I went to Aaron Brothers to pick up a couple of frames for photos, I also found a great frame for the sampler. The frame doesn't fit on the scanner, but I will post the sampler.

Hi Debi,

The sampler looks great. I like it. And I really love your quilttop. I started quilting too.
