There are three. Andy and I are continuing to experiment and push ourselves with the design and construction of each of our Cranes Quilts.

This is Cranes Quilt 05.40. It belongs to the 1st of 6 sets in the Cranes Spectrum.

Our Vivaldi's Cranes has been completed. It will be joining and included in our Cranes Quilt Project.

Day 437 – (AD 1,596) – 24.0 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Apropos…

Dear Madam, did you never gaze,
Thro' Optic-glass, on rotten Cheese?
There, Madam, did you ne'er perceive
A Crowd of dwarfish Creatures live?
The little Things, elate with Pride,
Strut to and from, from Side to Side:
In tiny Pomp, and pertly vain,
Lords of their pleasing Orb, they reign;
And, fill'd with harden'd Curds and Cream,
Think the whole Dairy made for them.

So Men, conceited Lords of all,
Walk proudly o'er this pendent Ball,
Fond of their little Spot below,
Nor greater Beings care to know;
But think, those Worlds, which deck the Skies,
Were only form'd to please their Eyes.

Stephen Duck, On Mites

OPOY
Andy Brunhammer and Jim Smith
June 2017
OPOY is our memory quilt of the atrocity of the Pulse massacre that occurred 2 years ago.

The titanium grey strips represent all those persons who tragically lost their lives. The colored strips represent the survivors.

Our intent is to compact the strips to, hopefully, portray, how the individuals may have felt as they were confined within their hour(s) of need and desperation.

The terror and loss of life is also our intent to express that we as a human can also celebrate the freedom of our individuality and our aspirations to reaching an equality of humanity.

Visit our site Quilts SB at https://quiltsb.blogspot.com/2017/09/q155-opoy-new-quilt.html to see and read about our composition and the design of OPOY Andy and I presented on the 1st anniversary of the tragedy.

From Entrepreneur “11 Proven Habits of Highly Innovative People”, Deep Patel, June 6, 2018.

“Innovative people disrupt whole industries with their ideas. Their brainchildren take on lives of their own and may impact generations to come. So what gives these super-creative people their edge? How do they tap into that talent? For one, they’ve learned to cultivate certain habits that support and heighten their creativity.”

I finally found Great-Grandmother Annie (nee Walsh) Brunhammer's Obituary Notice dated July 16, 1922. Great-Grandmother Annie was married to Great-Grandfather Eugene Albert Brunhammer. Note that Great-Grandmother Annie was born in Bradford, England and immigrated to the United States when she was 14 years old. The approximate year would have been 1884. She would have been born circa 1870.

Today, we’re having a new air-conditioning unit. Yep, the previous one lasted 17 years.

And then to top it all had to make a call to our electrician.

The question is – Would I prefer a brand new home?
