Agree – to have the same opinion


We agree, the Farmer and I
that the Road Trip we took in 2017,
the year of our 50th anniversary was perfect.

Did we always agree?
There were disagreements;
sometimes slightly or
not so slightly raised voices
and even louder silences.

Did we have a good time?
We met people who became friends;
visited with people we knew who became dear friends;
sights we saw that we would visit again in a heart beat
and memories when dusted off shine with great brightness.

Road trips are like life:
bumps, pot holes and u-turns
scenic surprises and sunsets
(I don’t get up early enough to see many sunrises)
shared hopes, accepted flaws
and great love anyway.
We agree.

Three on Thursday – Time to Piece

My word for 2081 – FINISHING

As in finish what you’ve started.
Since November, 2017,
I have finished 5 crochet projects,
three that were waiting in time out
and two that I started with new yarn.
I’m only working on one project at a time,
so unlike me the project butterfly,
that I am.

This year I’m joining
350 blocks in 2018 Project
with Shelly at Prairie Moon Quilts.

January’s goal – 10 blocks

Last night, the last night of January,
I decided I had to piece something!
But first, three things,

1. I had to straighten my shed on the right.
It had become fairly cluttered,
a little yarn here, a few recipes there,
a quilt block of the month piled here,
and miscellaneous stuff everywhere.

2. Next  up the ironing board.

3. Desk and Sewing machine ready.

Three of these blocks from 30’s fabrics were the end result.

Now I have 20 blocks completed,
and seven more cut out.
I don’t know if I’ll stop at 25 or cut more for 36 blocks,
I like square quilts for kids.
