I'm not running on all four cylinders today. Feel a bit hung over . . . not from too much chocolate (or too much wine) yesterday. Just the need to get out and going to an early morning meeting . . . and the memory of a really nice get together of friends and family for our Easter dinner accompanied with great conversation yesterday. Who knew there were so many funny stories of one-room school houses and leaky air mattresses.
Papa Pea taught in a two-room school house (next small step up from a one-room) for five years. Our daughter was in his class along with her best friend which spelled nothing but trouble for their teacher/dad. Our good friend J spent all of her grade school in a one-room school over-populated with boys and no girls near her age.
Papa Pea and I recalled a night on one of our early camping trips with torrential rain flowing under our tent and his air mattress refusing to stay inflated. In one of her first apartments, our friend A had nothing to sleep on but a leaky air mattress which she tried over and over to patch with packing tape and one night, in desperation, a wad of gum.
Dear daughter did the bulk of the food preparation yesterday with a little help from me. Our friend A brought a wonderful roasted broccoli dish and J provided dessert of a cheesecake with fresh raspberries. We figured each of our little slices of the luscious cheesecake held approximately 650 calories.
But I ramble. On to the drawing for the table runner.
I numbered your names as they came in, put the numbers 1 - 15 on slips of paper and had this Easter bunny sitting in his basket draw a number. The winner is:
Number 10 which corresponds with the comment from ELIZABETH.
So if you, Elizabeth, will send me your mailing address via my Contact button on my right hand side bar, I'll get the runner off to you asap.
Thanks to all of you who entered and said such nice things about this quilted piece. Hope you all had a lovely Easter.
