This photo of me with the glamorous Jan was just received from Roy who we went to Newport, Rhode Island to meet when his cruise ship arrived. He promised us photos of polar bears when he returned home and we were eager to get them. When his cruise ship left him in NYC he was flying to Churchill in Canada [Ontario?] to see the polar bears in their natural habitat. He wrote that it was an amazing adventure ... but didn't send any pictures. However, I like this photo and am happy to have it.
Yes, this is a quilt. I didn't make a note, but I believe it is by the well-known art quilter Barbara McKie and that the bears are thread painted. It seems very appropriate as winter set in around the county.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
