QUILT FOR SALE

I finally finished the first quilt I'm going to list for sale. The colors in person are so much more vibrant that the picture shows them. My camera has been acting weird lately and doesn't seem to want to focus. I think this came out beautiful.

Time frames

Tuesday Nov 4. 8:00 AM A small fire. The only one today. It will be warm. The unusual reverse in temperature combined with Grandma's clock that no longer moves, well, time seems to stand still on this November day. 10:27...
