Quarantine Quilting


Colorful quilts are getting some sun Ken at Lynda Ruth’s.  Many people have been gifted her mountain-made quilts;  Disabled Vets, Kids with Cancer, and the tiniest babies being cared for at local hospital NICU.

We met at a Fire Department BBQ and have been good friends ever since.  Over the years we’ve shared many meals and Lynda often brings her bag of yarn to crochet for a while  ’round the fire.  One year I was in awe as she achieved her goal of making a quilt a day.   On the phone a few days ago I asked what she was doing to stay busy during these past few weeks up here.  Making quilts!  So, I asked her to display them so I could take a pic to share.

Lynda called this morning, letting me know they were on the railing.  She took off on a hike (no cooties!) when I arrived and I ran up for the photo for you.  She was meeting up with Ken who is out cutting firewood.

Ken always has projects going as this is their third cabin on Palomar.  They just keep moving up!  The day I listed this one, we’d been invited for dinner.  I rolled in late (!!) when they were already sitting around the table.  “You just bought a new cabin”, I said,   “It even has a garage for Ken’s projects.  Do you want to see it now or have dinner first!?”  We did have that delicious dinner first, then ran over to see the cabin that they are hibernating in now.

What are YOU doing?  If you have something you’d like to share with PMNews, I’d love to turn it around to brighten the day for our neighbors and friends.

Hope you can get outside and enjoy our beautiful day!
