Last Friday, America's 9/11 Ride passed through our little town. I had witnessed this one other time, and wanted to see it again, as this is probably the last time they'll be holding the event. What a moving tribute to those first responders who lost their lives on that horrible day.

|I read that there were 1200 bikes participating this year.|
|Most of the bikers waved and honked at the onlookers.|

On Saturday, I decided I wanted to go out of town to a favorite restaurant, and maybe get some ice cream, too. We added in a short shopping trip, and an even shorter ferry ride to round out the day.

FNSI: I've even found some time for stitching. On Friday night, while stitching with friends around the world, I finished the binding on this baby quilt. These blocks were in a giveaway pile at a friend's house recently, so all I had to do was add some sashing and borders. She was even giving away yardage for the backing. One more pretty little quilt for the donation pile.
Not much happening the rest of the week. DH and I have another short outing planned, and I have a lot of sewing planned. Stay tuned.....
Be kind, always............Sunny
