I just finished putting the blocks together for the June Mystery. Even though it is summer, the days seem to fill up on their own.
I took this picture of the back because I thought it looked so pretty with the light shining through. Just like stained glass. The leaders and enders I used to turn the rows are still dangling on the sides.
Kurt's boss has a 17 year old son that was in a car accident three days ago. He was turning left when another car ran a red light and crashed into the driver's side door. Despite emergency surgery to repair the damage, he remained non responsive and was declared brain dead yesterday afternoon. Although I didn't know him, my girlfriend has a son the same age and they went to kindergarten together. She wanted to go to the hospital to pay her respects and so we took a card over together last night. The priest was there as they waited for the organ donation team to show up. We went out to dinner after that and talked about lots of things; death and family and life. It's been a thoughtful day around here. I wrote a whole post about it, but didn't publish it because this is a quilt blog after all.
Today is Ryan's birthday though, and he wanted to go and see Despicable Me. Tonight we are going to dinner at TGI Friday's and having cake and presents.
