THE JOY OF BARN QUILTS

I was delighted to see Martha Dillard on the cover of the May issue of Cooperative Living and read the article about her joy to spread the beauty of barn quilts. I also share her passion for making and displaying their colorful designs. It’s a wonderful way to brighten up a neighborhood. The current theme on our fence is red, white and blue for Memorial Day, Flag Day and 4th of July. Our barn quilts reflect calendar celebrations. When I’m driving by buildings and fences, I am envisioning where I’d hang a barn quilt to add a pop of color and art. Take a drive and see how many barn quilts you can spot!

We enjoy reading Cooperative Living. It’s a great magazine!

SAY CHEESE BRINGS SMILES

In the midst of all the gloom and doom around us everywhere, I’ve about worn out May’s Say Cheese page lifting my spirits with those smiling kids and their animals. Little Dean and his Buff Orpington chicken could come as a prescription to cure depression.

THE COLOR IS KEY

Please tell Dan Walker, your Dining with Dan columnist, that Key lime pie is not green. It’s yellow, as is a ripe Key lime.

I enjoy reading Cooperative Living and thought May’s barn quilt cover feature article was most enjoyable.
