These many triangles have challenged me, so I'm happy to have the triangle portions done. I have another step or two and then I'll find a long-arm quilting service to do the actually quilting.
Yesterday I had another nice surprise; my cousin Jacque sent me another photo of my Grandma Grace Masters Pierce. This one is a professional photo taken of Grace and her Masters siblings. I am SO delighted to receive it! A huge thanks to Jacque, who also provided this information:
These are all the children of Grandma Pierce's parents, Henry and Margaret Masters. From left to right in back - Guy and Frank Masters
Middle row - Jennie, Addie, Grandma
Front - Iva
I feel like I can sense their personalities from this picture. The shy one, the romantic one, the one who organizes everything... and don't you love Frank's mustache? And the clothes?
This poem by Luci Shaw spoke to me this week, taking a look at small blessings. So important...
by Luci Shaw
In time of drought, let us be
thankful for this very gentle rain,
a gift not to be disdained
though it is little and brief,
find the rest of the poem as well as more about Luci here.
