I STARTED Early--Took my Dog--And visited the Sea--
The Mermaids in the Basement Came out to look at me

Angelic Variations...

So I made this cane (Hope of Hartford quilt block pattern)...quite a bit of it actually.  For me, anyway.  I don't tend to make a lot of any one cane.  I decided to make one each of the angel ornaments that I make:
