Ted, Darcy, and I ran in the Symphony of Lights 5KM race in Clinton, Iowa. Darcy grew up in Clinton. It was a lot of fun, and Ted finished 4th – no, 3rd overall!! All three of us finished 2nd in our age groups.
Three days of beautiful weather, excellent courses, and superb company made for a great event this past weekend at DVOA’s Fair Hill A-Meet (sprint, classic, and long over three days). Sandy and I formed the electronic punching team. We had interested parties from NEOC learning the SportIdent process throughout the weekend.

I made this quilt top 10+ years ago from some of the first fabric packs I bought. I worked on it by hand while Roger was in the hospital. When I got stuck on finishing it, I donated it to the local quilt group I belong to. It was bought by Diane H.
About a year ago, I started wishing I had the quilt back. So, a couple of weeks ago, I emailed Diane and asked her if she was willing to sell it back to me. Here was her response: “I’ve had a feeling all along that someday you were going to be sorry that you let go of that great quilt top. I’d started to draw out a quilting design for it (only on paper, not on the quilt) but something made me set it aside. It is really your quilt & yes, you are welcome to it. I have already gotten a lot of enjoyment out of just looking at it pinned up on my design wall every so often.”
I picked it up at the quilting bee. Diane has suggested a way to quilt it, and I believe I will give it a try. I am very grateful for Diane’s generosity.
