IF: Obsession

My fascination and attraction to crazy quilts is becoming an obsession! I can "blame" my Great, Great Grandmother Merritt  who created dazzling crazy quilts while she ran a boarding house in the Catskills.

IF: Stay-cation

  Sometimes the best vacations are just 10 minutes away! 
In northwestern Connecticut we have  The White Memorial Conservation Center
4000 acres of woods, trails, ponds and fields. 
We enjoyed Father's Day there - in our canoe! 
(We're the 3 bears in the birch bark canoe.)
