What's on the line?

A little quilt that was made by my mother, Mary, is on the line today............
 
This was a remnant that she bought of a panel fabric that had all these cute houses and little quilts on it. She added a top and bottom strip of fabric, hand-quilted the piece and then added colorful yo-yo's. She did a lot of little quilting projects in the last few years but now her hands just don't stitch as well so she doesn't do any quilting anymore. She still likes to crochet, although she hasn't done any since moving to the Care Center. She told me, though, that she's going to "get back to it soon". I hope so, as it really is something that helps pass the time.
I went home to Iowa this past weekend to vist my mom and took her to the Lehigh Public School Alumni banquet. We had a good time and visited with lots of old friends!
Today will be a day for laundry and cleaning as we have friends visiting from California tomorrow, plus it's my husband's birthday so I should probably bake a cake. Such a busy summer already and so much I was planning to blog about and just can't get to it! I've decided not to make any more promises about being a more regular blogger........sporadic blogging is now my new regular. LOL!
Back soon.......
