Grandma had a double wedding ring quilt that she wanted to display so Frank took the bottom legs from an old rocker and made mounts from them. The rod is an old broomstick, all stained and varnished. The quilt is one she bought about 20 years ago and is completely handmade and very bright and pretty (of course I would think so since it's background is green). She wanted it hanging over her bed.

Frank has been busy helping with the greenhouse. He also has renewed his interest in radio controlled airplanes and has been working on some unfinished ones he had in his building and has ordered some new parts and tools. Here he is mounting a new overhead light.
The greenhouse is finished and in use. There's lots of room inside. I am "recycling" the black iron island shelving from kitchen and the glass top table I have been using as an outdoor potting table (both donations from the sons) . I repainted the pedestal black and removed the outer wooden frame so that it would be narrower. I have already potted some Sweet William and Day Lily seeds I saved from last year.
The windows open and close automatically when temperature changes.

I am using the Sukoku puzzle board and like it. I use it as directed at first and enter original puzzle in red and work what I can in black. The easy ones I can finish this way, but for the harder ones, once I am stumped, I turn all to red and then I can 'guess' in black and know where I started. ( Don't tell Dick ) .

We found a Sudoku Puzzle Board that should eliminate my pencil entries. The tiles are reversible so the puzzle is copied onto the board from the book or paper in red tiles and the solution is entered in black tiles. I'll let you know how it works later.
The pictured puzzle was classified as " very easy ".
