It’s been a long day today. We drove to Sierra Madre to pick up a Southern Pacific Caboose pot-bellied stove that was donated to the Depot Museum (http://www.tehachapidepot.com). The “crew” consisted of Dennis Storms, Doug Pickard, Mike Massee, Robert, and yours truly.
After four hours of driving–two hours there and two hours return trip, (thank you, Robert for driving, and our son Paul for the loan of his truck), the stove is at the Depot and ready to be unloaded. I got busy helping to get it out of the back of the truck and onto the dollie, so this is the last photo I have of the stove move. When we get it all cleaned up and black again, I’ll be posting photos.
Back to the quilt, I gave in and took it down to the living room floor. I taped down the backing, got Robert to help me lay down the batting and top, and proceeded to pin the layers together. It’s going to look good. I’m thinking I’ll use black for the binding. I’m also going to go ahead and order some fabric labels to be put on things made for the Depot.
That’s all I have to report for now, other than the new fence has been keeping the majority of the squirrels out of our back yard. I worried a bit whether the bunny rabbits would be able to come in, but after last night, I have no more worries. I watched a bunny flatten out and try to go under the gate back end first and when he couldn’t make it in that way, he turned around and went right under the gate, lickety-split. A second bunny followed suit, so that answered that question.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Know that you are loved, and you’re never alone in this life. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
