Memories to Heirlooms
Memories to Heirlooms
When my niece Kate asked if she could hire me to make a t-shirt quilt for Anne, my answer, of course, was, "No, but we could make one together!"
How do you deliver a quilt in the middle of a global pandemic with proper social distancing? Kate in a dino suit, of course!
The finished quilt turned out great. Anne said, "It made my year!"
Teachers/coaches give so much to so many, often never knowing the impact they have made. Many of my high school memories include Anne, and I know that she has given herself the same way to thousands of other students. Anne has been a constant in Kate's life and helped her grow into the remarkable woman she is. It feels terrific to work as a family to give a little back to her. Now she can wrap up in all those memories with the ones she loves most.

I wanted to share this story to help people know how remarkable Anne is.
This past year I saw Anne at a service for her husband. At the meal afterward, she came and asked me to sing "your team song that you wrote." At first, I had no idea what she was talking about. Then I remembered that before each swim meet, our whole team would line up and sing a revised version of "The Minute You Walked in the Joint" complete with dance moves! That was 44 years ago and umpteen students, and she remembered it!! Amazing.
I had three enviromentally friendly dishwashing detergents that didn't work so I decided to buy three more to see if I could find one that did! (I am not sponsored or connected to any of these companies. )
Here the results of my research.
The dishes were not getting clean. This is spaghetti sauce with chesse washed with Ecos. Also the three products I had, Ecos, Nature's Promise and 7th generation consistently did not clean cinnamon off my breackfast bowls. (I use a lot of cinnamon.)
Dishwasher - Bosch - set on Pot scrubber
Rinse Agent - white vinegar
dropps is what I will use from here on out and I am willing to pay a bit more because:
3 drops of dish soap (I used Method dish soap and very small drops)
1 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Results- Dishes got clean but a residue was left on metal surfaces.
