  That says it. 
The shirt is one in my daughter-in-law's etsy shop. She has a passion for fitness and health and I'm sure the words "Yes I can" in this content have a lot to do with endurance and running. For me...however, the words apply to this crazy life. I can do it. I can get thru each day, I can get my hours in at work, I can come home and take care of my family, I can do some quilting, I can put a smile on my face and I can hope that it is contagious.
I can dream. I can do. I can pray.

Stitching feathers

After we got back from Alaska...
A lot has been going on. 
Within the week we headed out again to Minnesota to a funeral. 
My Mother-in-law passed away. Sad, but she was ready to go. 
We came home to a skunk scented house. Two of the Jacks were sprayed. They came in the doggie door and tried to wipe it all off on the living room furniture. 
So we've been bathing dogs and hauling couches out. 
Finally things are settled down again and in-between laundry loads I have been doing some quilt-therapy. This was the 3rd coin quilt that I made out of these fabrics. (2 shelter quilts that I posted last month, and a 3rd to keep.) It will be a great all around utility quilt.

Home for a while now!

Here are pictures from our trip to beautiful Alaska.
We spent a week there visiting family. 
Of course we included a fishing trip!

All smiles!
