The window in the first pictureis the one that lost its vapor lock. Doesn't it look like an xray of ribs or a skeleton??? The new one--in the second photo--was installed this morning. Quite an improvement, eh? The last photo is just my little homage to the beauty of marigolds in the fall. I just love them. They are so cheery and so perky and just seem to keep going long after the other blooms in the yard have hung it up. On the sewing front, yesterday I got the inner and outer borders on Scrapbag Explosion and will post a pix after the quilting and binding are done--whenever that happens!!! I was so glad that I was able to do the entire quilt out of scraps and stash. I may have to break down and purchase some yardage for the backing though. I was so tickled to read all the encouraging comments about our trip to Italy. Just three more days.... And the reunion was fun. Talking over old times is just the best!
