T Shirt Quilt
My Quilt is DONE!! As I have said before that plucky little Laura sure can sew!
It looks really really good. But the best part was the label she put on it. Several years ago I gave Laura a card. Inside it I wrote ” It is no fun playing a Knight in Shining Armor without a Fairy Princess to Love and Protect. Thank You for being my Fairy Princess.” I guess she really liked it since she has kept it under glass on a desk in her sewing room. This is the label she put on my quilt. I am signing up right now for another 38 years with my Honey no matter how heavy the armor gets!
Speaking of Honey
My daughter Carol and I extracted the honey from the frames last night. We got about 90 lbs total. Carol was smart enough to remember to have Laura video it so it so we could post it on Facebook. There is a video that shows Carol uncapping (scraping the caps off the honey comb) and another of me running the extractor (hand cranked centrifuge) to get the honey out of the combs. You can see these on our Facebook page “The Creative Thimble”.
