Quilting and Discovery

I am finding forgotten things as I clean out my house. Family photos that have become a small quilt memorabilia piece. The mariners compass table runner I made for my son for his first apartment. The 1,000 paper cranes my daughter and her friends folded for my Aunt Ethel when she had ovarian cancer, and she survived that. I found a shadow box frame so that I could display some of them. And I am finding that I can do what seems like impossible things like paint the stair risers. Impossible because I am allergic to latex paint which makes me light-headed and dizzy. I almost fell a few times but I managed to keep my balance. Life is a balancing act after all.
