A forgotten photo

I was going through pictures in the different folders found on my computer, when I ran across this picture.
I am fascinated by this stained glass window.
Most stained glass windows are constructed with colored glass and lead framing. But this one looks as if, hand painted and has the transparent feeling of a water color.
The window is in the church found on the campus of the Lutheran Seminary in Gettysburg. The students diffidently have a beautiful setting for their studies and meditations.

The second weekend in May every year everyone in Winston Salem is
This is the weekend that the Greek community has their Greek Festival.
Wine, Food, Greek goods, Greek music & traditional Greek dances are performed.
For the past two evenings I have enjoyed the festival with daughter (last night) and gal friend (tonight).
(DH is racing at VIR this weekend)
Both nights we shared a bottle of wine and ate souvlaki.

Both evenings were very enjoyable. If you have never gone to a Greek Festival you should.

The piecing is finished.......

The piecing is finished, the borders are on.......
It's off to the long arm quilter on Tuesday.

I am so-o-o-o glad to have this behind me.
The lucky couples first shower is June 8th. Do I give it to the bride then or do I wait and present it to both, son & soon to be daughter-in-law at their couples shower on June 28th?
I guess that's up to the quilter!
But which ever shower, I hope they are please with it. Neither bride or groom know I have made this for them.

A Gift from the Heart

I have completed another stole for my SIL. I hope she likes this one as much as she liked the one I gave her when we visited she & bro a few weeks ago.
A week from today she will graduate from Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary.
Congratulations Anna!
See you in a few weeks.
