So it is the 4th of July. Always interested me that we reverse the day and month for this one - more military. Anyhow other than having more stitches put in my young dog Echo (when will she learn when it is time to stop annoying her grandmother Aspen), I have been working on my fathers portrait. I had a very hard time starting, my reluctance stopped me for days. I finally started on Sunday and decided it did not matter where it went, it just had to go somewhere. My first effort has him looking like he had his picture taken from jail after being a terrorist. Happily, the instructor has given me some advice and I can start to fix it up. Attaching the picture just so you can see. Also got back the brown "stack the deck" quilt from the machine quilter Karen Neimi. She added aspen leafs and it looks lovely. She would like me to finish the binding before mid-August so she can enter it in a show. I think that would be pretty neat.

How ever the picutre turns out at least you're trying and learning some new things along the way.
