Sugar Bowl

Another beautiful Florida morning. Ran 4 miles this morning, no duck mashings! I love going out while the stars are still shining and the sky is pitch black. By the time I come back in, there's a little patch of light grey/blue in the east and the stars are starting to fade. 
While I run, I have time to think. Sometimes I recite some poetry I've learned by heart, or say some Psalms as I go. It's the nicest time of my day. 
Here is a shot of one of the little quilts I finished up since I left home. 
Sorry it's not such a great picture, and of course I left a thread showing on the top. But it's such a cute little quilt, I love it anyway. This is a very traditional little block called "Sugar Bowl". The pattern was in one of Gwen Marston's older books. I love the combination of red and white, it's so classic.
Getting ready to take Dad to a doctor's appointment this morning. Another day, another doctor. He's really doing pretty well, considering his health problems. I'm glad I was able to come and help out, and just be with Mom and Dad. It's the first time in 40 years that I don't have anyone at home, so I have the flexibility to travel without worrying about anyone.

Hi Susan - I like your little Sugar Bowl quilt block and that you added a pieced border to only two of the sides - so sweet! I'm so impressed that you are a runner - I walk quite a bit and a couple years ago I thought I would try some jogging in increase the benefits of my time, but my hips complained LOUDLY and that was the end of that - guess 61 is no time to start something new like that! LOL
