Does Lena look more like me or Karen?

Many think Lena looks like me! She does a little bit. I dug out some pictures of myself and our sister, Karen, when we were babies and I think Lena looks more like Karen. Lena on the top picture, me in the middle, and Karen at the bottom. What do you think?

Memorial Day!

Got the flowers on the graves in South Yarmouth. The top is Grandma, Warren, Ma and Edmond. Warren got a flower and a flag from the fire dept. Edmond got a flag from the Navy. Grandpa's grave also got a flag from the military. Karen has been gone 20 years!! Where has the time gone? She has 6 beautiful grandchildren that she never got to hold!! So sad. Carleen has been gone 2 years. Time is just flying by. George and I went to Otis National Cemetery yesterday. We put a flower on his parents grave, 'visited' his friend, Danny who died last year, and observed the ceremony that the military puts on every year for the veterans. It was very emotional. Went to KMart parking lot where there is a military presence. Cape Cod Cares for the Troops has a military function there every Memorial weekend. They had many things going on. They had a prayer tent where one could write the name of someone serving in the military or has served on a piece of paper and then you staple the paper to the wall and the minister says a prayer. I wrote my nephew, Matthew Rodrigues, name down and then the minister said a prayer for him. There was a very nice ceremony at the Town Hall this morning for all the veterans also.

Quilts From Bayberry Quilters Meeting

The guest speaker for Bayberry Quilt Guild, Marilyn, does portrait quilts. This was the only one I could get a picture of. It's not the best angle but it shows how talented she is. Her portrait quilts are amazing. She also had a lot of quilts of mythological figures also. The next quilt is Debbie's. Her first grandchild is due very soon and she made this very meaningful quilt. The whole family are huge Red Sox fans, so hence the Red Sox bear. She also put in things to represent her father and their love of all New England sports. Beautiful. The last quilt is one given to our outgoing president. One of our members asked us to sign a piece of muslin for a 'mystery' quilt. She got 125 signatures and put this lovely quilt together. That's our last meeting until September. Nice way to end our guild for the summer.
