Master's Degree in Geology and how to display your quilts in a home.

Well, our little girl has done it.  After 6 hard years of school, she has her Master's Degree in Geology.  And, all you parents can relate, she is gainfully employed!

We spent the last 6 days in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  We got to watch her defend her thesis to a packed room of professors and peers.  It had something to do about studying pre-solar system dust!  Don't ask, I can't tell you for certain, suffice it to say it was most impressive...smile.

Then, with proud grand parents in tow, we spent a day in Santa Fe.  We visited beautiful chapels, bought jewelry from Indian's selling their wares at the Governor's Palace and ate some pretty good food.  You will eat really well in New Mexico.  We ate at the Shed, the #5 on the menu was great!



Next my mom and dad went home and we moved Chelsea into her pink adobe house.  I like to decorate from the view of what do you see when you open the door.  How is your eye drawn into the space and how does it tie together.





These are 2 quilts I made for Chelsea.  You use the Command stickers to hang on a fireplace.  These are easily removable and don't ruin paint.  Plus, I didn't have a mortar drill bit to hang them.

We are proud, but most of all happy our daughter knows who she is and knows what she wants out of life.  She is carving quite a nice one out for her and her dog, Fawn.  That's one lucky dog!  For her graduation gift, she wanted cross country skis.  Fawn has a harness and they will travel off into the great beyond...smile...

You are an amazing crafter. I was searching the web for horse quilt patterns and found your blog.

Would you please email me and let me know if the 3 horse patterns you have created are available somewhere.

thanks,
Ramona
