A View From The Top

This photo was taken by my friend, David. Click on the photo to get a larger view and the full effect! He is working on the wind turbines that are sprouting up all over around Walnut. He is a "checker". He goes up the towers and crawls out to check something...I'm not sure what. I think actually he should be checking to see if he has any sense! This looks horrifyingly scary! I guess there really is a job for everyone and that God gives each of us talents to do what has to be done. Being 300 feet up in the air must be like hanging out of an airplane. David and his wife, Stephanie have been staying with us since the first of October. They have occupied our little apartment area in the basement. It has been a blessing having them here. They have been the perfect renters. Hardly a peep out of them and so fun getting to know them. Today, however, they had to find new lodging. Unfortunately Stephanie has an allergy to my kitties. She didn't tell me about it, hoping that it would be OK since they would only be here until after Christmas and then would be moving on. BUT, they kicked in during the past couple days to the point that she could hardly breath. I'm sick about loosing them. I hope they will be OK in their new situation and I hope we can remain friends and still see each other.

"Quilting Tip of the Day"
Step outside your box with color....while staying in one colorway is "safe" it usually makes for a pretty drab, flat and uninteresting quilt. Add some "zing" or spark by incorporating a shot of something unexpected. My friend Pam just finished a little quilt for Quilts of Valor. It is red, white and black...BUT to add some dazzle she put in a touch of turquoise! Perfect! Happy Quilting!

Sorry about your will miss them. Are there many other things available in Walnut or will they have to live in another town? I know you enjoyed having them there...too bad.

I will defiantly miss them. THey found a place here in town, at the Red Carpet Inn. I hope it will be ok for them. I so enjoyed having them and I know it was a blessing to them...before she got sick that is. I hope it will work out for them. They still have about six weeks here in town.
