My Towel for the Tea Towel Challenge

This is the tea towel I will use for the center medallion  tea towel quilt challenge  over here
 The tea towel belonged to my mama. When I learned about the challenge I quickly went to the dinning room chest hoping to find the perfect towel.  I am sure the towel was a gift from one of mama's students. They even had her name embroidered on the towel.

I think I will call this quilt "Tending the Flock" because Mama did that for 30+ years teaching young minds in the city schools. She would be happy that I repurposed the towel for a  quilt

I want a stripe border and liked the stripe fabric in the upper right the best.
The challenge ask to try a new technique so I will make the fast finish triangles for hanging the quilt. 
How about these yo yo's for embellishment?  The chicks,  a gift from


 Below are alterations I finished today, which means a little extra change for guilty stuff.  They belong to a friend who was my second grade teacher. What a blessing to be 99 years young!!

Hooray my PC is back

 I knew I wasn't obsessed with a pc and happily did
without it for a few days while it was being repaired for what they termed "bloated".
 But the most important point I want to make is about the guys at Best Buy
Geek squad. With great customer service  so very hard to come by these days , they did an exceptional job of keeping me informed about my repair status. And also telling me" we are happy to restore your device to it's awesomely functional status".  Now that makes me feel real good.
Have a super super bowl Sunday and may the best team win. I know I am very thankful for the team at Best Buy.
Peace, love, and art,
