I seem to so seldom finish any of my needle work that I thought I'd better record a successful completion. I think I posted earlier with a couple of progress pictures that I was working on some quilt blocks a woman had asked me to make up for her and after finishing the stitching a few days ago and working on the frames, I finally got them all put together and signed and here they are.
Now I'm going to have my little dinner of a tuna/pasta/grape tomatoes, olives and onion salad I made last night that is quite nummy. Used olive oil and balsamic rather than mayo or something like that and it was good and I'm starving!

- When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!
P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs above).
I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.
