The first two rows of DGD's quilt top are sewn together. I took a couple pictures to give you an idea.

I hope she has time to sew this week. Today is out as she has a babysitting job.
Yesterday we went back to Salem to tour Deepwood Estate. It was a rainy day and I forgot to bring my good camera, so these pictures were taken with my phone and it wasn't light enough for most of them to turn out. The house was built in 1894.
It cost $15,000 to build it, which was a lot of money for a house in those days, but it had all the modern conveniences, including indoor plumbing with hot and cold water and even electricity! There were lots of stained glass windows, even in the bathroom!
|Lovely window in the stairway.|
|Original bath tub was not a claw foot.|
|Entry way stained glass with a replica of Thomas Edison's light bulb in the light fixture.|
We now have a son living on the Atlantic Coast, one on the Gulf Coast and one near the Pacific Coast! Are they trying to stay far apart from each other or us? That is my question. Of course the one who just moved to the Atlantic Coast did it on orders of the Air Force, so they didn't have much choice in the matter. I can't wait to see their new house - maybe this fall.
