Fish tank, before

 photo db45afd0-9e14-43da-9ec5-ec33e1d031e4_zpsedf98068.jpg

The fish tank has looked like this for almost 13 years. I decided it was time to give it a complete makeover. After photo will happen at a later date.

Why yes, I'm flattening out the middle of your nice, round feathery bush by lying in it. And you have a problem with that - WHY??

I know this looks very much like the last photo of this quilt, but this is the totally finished piece, now in residence on my bed. Please note the cat hiding under its edge.

Sneak preview

It still needs backing, binding, washing and ironing, but I couldn't resist the urge to see what it will look like on my bed.

A French twist on an Italian favorite.

Bruschetta: slice of mozzarella cheese topped with halved grape tomatoes, and halved (or quartered) strawberries, fresh basil leaves cut in ribbons. Toss tomatoes, strawberries and basil with some olive oil, lightly sprinkle with salt, and add a splash of red wine vinegar. Delicious!

Can be served with slices of Italian bread, or focaccia, but our main course was served on Italian bread, so I served the salad just as you see it.

The matriarch with her 6 children and their 5 spouses, 20 grandchildren, 5 with spouses, and 4 great-grandchildren.  There is another grandchild on the way, and another great-grandchild.  There were 4 grandchildren missing, one spouse and two great-grandchildren.  Also missing - the patriarch.  He has gone to heaven, hearing 'Well done, thou good and faithful servant.'

The mail brought me a package.   In it was a small black bag with drawstrings.  Inside was this marvelous creation:
