A little show and tell

The photos are not the greatest...debated on waiting and trying to get better photos but figured I couldn't do much better.
I am showing a few pics of the quilting....
 Two of the borders I quilted the same, and the two others are different.  Different to the two that are alike and different from each other.
oh, and the back is this red flannel...
Not the greatest, but even though the pics don't show it, it is better than I thought it would be.  But there is still a lot I am not really happy with.

The latest

Sarah sent me this last night...while we were gone, Lorelei lost another tooth.  She was eating Italian ice, and when she removed the spoon from her mouth, this tooth flipped out onto the counter.  Sarah said Tootie laughed so hard at the way it came out that she was crying.
We took off for a couple days and went down to Madison, Indiana.  It is a historical rivertown that sits on the Ohio River.  We were through that part of Indiana 3 or 4 years ago and have always wanted to go back.  Not so much for anything other than to see that part of Indiana.  And we were not disappointed.

People are so friendly...the country is rolling hills...the roads are twisting and winding...some so narrow I don't know how far someone would have to back-up in order to pass!
We even saw several barns with tobacco hanging in them.
And we saw a few fields with the tobacco not yet hauled to the barns.

No, I don't smoke or anything like that, but we did raise the stuff when we were kids.  So, it brings back memories.  I look at them with fondness now, remembering working with my family.  But at the time, I was not so crazy about it.
