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.
Have a person in your life you would like to honor? Contact me so we can get started.

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.
Dishing on Dishwasher Detergent
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.
