What is old?
It always amazes me how we Americans think our history is old. We don't know what old is. This is Chateau de Chillon on Lake Geneva and its written record dates back to 1150. Suddenly 1776 doesn't seem so old. Since so many of us came from Europe, I guess these old castles are part of our heritage too. Of course I'm only thinking "old"as from my immigrant family history. The Native Americans date back much further. I think history is so interesting.

I'm still struggleing with a sore throat and fatigue but I did finish machine quilting the Sea Green quilt. I'm still not happy with my machine quilting.

The old buildings in Europe and elsewhere are so beautiful. I just love the architecture and the story behind how they were made, and how people lived then.
So sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope you feel better soon.

Isn't it strange what old is. When my friends from France came over and I was showing them old houses from the early 1900's and then I thought about where they live and they have cathedrals and buildings from the 1700's, I felt kind of silly!
