I have now passed the 37,000-mile mark.
This morning I pedaled 23.4 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 37,018.9 miles; 59,576.3 kilometers.
I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 12.00%.
Countdown continues. Only 1,182.7 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.
Something to think and make sure to do something about –

Our Cranes Quilts Update -
Quilting is done on the "almost" last Cranes Quilt of the Blue Set. The quilting on this Cranes Quilt was completed free-motion on our Janome 6600.
6 does not divide evenly into 40 evenly, so Andy and I will be creating the last 4 Cranes Quilts with batik fabric colors that are unique but will fit into one or more of the 6 color sets.
1. Yes, there are holes in some of our Crane Quilts.
2. Our reasoning for the holes is...
3. Our Crane blocks are composed of 4 different sizes: 3"; 4"; 5"; and 6".
4. Yes, the Crane blocks are not paper-pieced.
5. The Cranes Spectrum quilts are all composed of lots of different batik shades of the 3 primary and 3 secondary colors.
Our Hope - Cranes Quilts - Project will premiere in January in Clearwater. Stay-tuned for updates.
