Q is for Quilt.

No one in my family ever made a quilt as far as I know. They were crocheters, knitters and cross stitchers, but no quilters.

A couple of people I work with love to quilt and they make some beautiful ones. They offered to teach me but I never had much patience for sewing.

I do have a bedspread that may quality as a quilt. 

No one in our family made it though. I think my mom bought it for us when we moved into this house.

I  did win this little quilted table runner a few years ago.

It has a pretty pattern on the reverse side, too. I keep it on my grandmothers old trundle sewing machine.

The most beautiful quilt I've ever seen, however, was the one we saw that won all sorts of ribbons at the Great Lakes State Fair a few years ago.

The picture does not show how intricate and beautiful this quilt was!

P is for Park

This is one of the entrances to the large park in our subdivision

Got playground equipment, picnic tables and a small baseball diamond

Plus there is an area where it looks like they used to build ice skating rinks every winter.

Every summer the HOA puts on a little concert in the park.

It's mostly jazz music and kind of lame, but they give free ice cream so we usually go!
