Day 503 – (AD 1,662) – 23.8 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I pedaled 23.8 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 35,934.5 miles; 57,831.1 kilometers.


I am now continuing to my new destination Gordii Dorsum. I am located at 55.19%.



And while I’m cycling I’m watching Hulu’s The First.

It is sort of slow, but I think the show is attempting to present character descriptions of each one of the key players.





Something to think and make sure to do something about –

Key 2018 Election Dates in Florida – General Election – November 6

Our Cranes Quilt Update –

Cranes Quilts Green Set begins today.

Our green batik fabric, from Sew Batik, has been laid out. We're choosing 6 shades of green. The white background is self-explanatory.


Each Crane block is composed of 17 fabric pieces. All pieces are cut with our AccuQuilt Go! Big. In conjunction, we designed the Crane block die cutter.

Our first Cranes Quilt in the Green Set will include 102 cut fabric pieces. The will be pieced together using our Janome 6600.

And yes, Andy and I attempt to answer any and all your questions.

Yes, we are obsessed. Check out our Obsession notes at Quilts SB - http://quiltsb.blogspot.com/2018/04/origami-cranes-our-obsession.html

I was just wondering, as I am watching Fiddler on The Roof while I cycle, whether or not there is some application of the lyrics embedded in the current and deep conscious of the present resident of the Oval Office.

“Daidle deedle daidleDaidle daidle deedle daidle dumb

“If I were a wealthy manI wouldn’t have to work hard…

I’d build a big tall house with rooms by the dozenRight in the middle of town…

The most important men in town will come to fawn on meThey will ask me to advise them,Like a Solomon the Wise…

And maybe have a seat by the Eastern (Southern sic) wall…
And it won’t make one bit of differenceIf I answer right or wrongWhen you’re rich they think you really know…

If I were a rich man,Daidle deedle daidleDaidle daidle deedle daidle dumb”

Our Cranes Quilts Update -

Part 3 of the quilting design is completed.



Our decision for Cranes Quilt #14.40 certainly is different. This is just one of 40 in the collection of the Cranes Spectrum in our Hope Project.

The quilting design has been applied and is in progress for Cranes Quilts #15.40.


Our Cranes journey is causing us to tap into areas of fabric art that we've never dreamt. This counts for the single Cranes quilt in a Set, in a Spectrum, in the complete Hope Project.
