Hannah and the Quilt meet.

Finally, after two years of keeping quiet, I could keep quiet no longer. Hannah has now met her quilt. The two got together recently for the quilt's second birthday bash. It was a noisy affair, but a good time was had by all. Hannah, who lives in an undisclosed location in the state of Illinois (several people have reportedly "threatened" that THEY want the quilt), was visiting to go to Taste Of Chicago. The parting was teary, but the quilt must remain in my custody until it is completed. Hannah states emphatically that she WILL be back to visit often, and will keep in contact with the quilt via this blog.

From one coast to the other!

The quilt traveled to the West Coast in June. The American Library Association had the annual conference in Anaheim California. I went to help recruit librarians to come work at my library.

Although I was very busy with the conference, I was able to go birdwatching in the early mornings, like here at the Irvine Regional Park.

and in the evenings I went to the beaches to have supper with my co-worker JRo.

Now in July, the quilt will again travel to Florida.
