2. Every time she washes her hands (often, in this Swine Flu / H1N1 season), she sees me:


This past weekend was parents' weekend at my daughters college. It was great too see her.
While I was there, I noticed that all of the hand soap dispensers had my name on them. Go figure.

I know that some are betting against me finishing fifty quilts by the end of the year. Truth be told, I have finished over fifty quilts already, but they aren't fifty quilts that I can share on this blog.

Some baby somewhere will enjoy this.
