Ribs

The pool guys worked in the drizzle all day and now the pool looks like it has ribs!
The men went to a farm auction today and Mom and I went to Daytona Beach for a JoAnnFabrics fix and to find a new quilt shop.  Wonderful to spend time together as always!
I bought some supplies; needles for quilting and rotary cutter blades and lining for a new dress for Abigail and a tie for David.  Mom bought some batting for the next quilt project we have planned. 
We sent for a quilt kit from Quiltsforkids.org which is a charity that supplies quilts to area hospitals, shelters etc.   Click on tab titled How to Help and then to request a kit and you will have a kit in the mail in a week!  You have to supply the batting and the binding and machine quilt it then send it back to them in a month.  Check them out!
Oh, yeah; Bill brought this home from the auction today............he says it is for me because I have always said if I had one of those zero turns I would mow our lawn!   Now we will see if I can!  (For inquiring minds...this is a Toro Z master, 72" cut)
And these are for Bill who has an idea............tanks for solar hot water for the pool.
