Toast A Rising Star Block Winners

I wanted to post these pictures and thank our wonderful Wacky friend Molly for encouraging us to participate in the TDA (Texas Department of Ag) quilt block contest. As you all have read from our perspective blogs, the contest is held every two years and offers a different theme each time. The wine industries of Texas was the theme this year. Molly prodded, push, cajoled and dragged us along to make blocks. I, for one, just want to participate for the fun of it. I had no illusions of even placing but I didn't want to let Molly down by not even trying.
Low & behold, 3 "Wackies" were accepted and it's all because of Molly. I salute you, Molly.

Above is a little movie I made to share with our group a little after Jerri passed away.  It's a snippet of her antics and love of living. I'm sharing it with you in the hopes that it will lift your spirits, make you laugh or just spread a…
