Charlie's Quilt

Charlie was the first person to befriend us when we moved to Baltimore.

Charlie is our designated cat sitter.

Charlie is our contractor, who is fixing our water damage.

Charlie is our friend.

Charlie has cancer.

When someone you care about is sick, you ask the question, what can I do? Over the years, I've learned to go with what I know. I can cook. I can quilt. Charlie gets a quilt.

This is Charlie's quilt. Charlie is a fan of vintage cares, among other things. I found a vintage car panel a few weeks ago when I went shopping with Kathleen. This was the starting point. The rest? Well, I knew it needed to be quick (I started Saturday afternoon, and just threw it in the wash. Charlie starts chemo tomorrow.) I also needed to use my stash. I did purchase the red Kona. (How could I not have any red Kona?) Big 15" log cabinish blocks for the rest. The quilt measures about 45 x 60. Hopefully just the right size to keep him warm during treatment. The backing is this print from Michael Miller (also from our shopping spree.) Charlie is a musician as well.

Big loopy fmq in invisible thread, machine stitched binding, and it's finished. In a few minutes it will be tossed in the dryer, then I'll walk it down to Charlie's house. Please keep Charlie in your prayers.

Very nice. I have made a couple of those for family members undergoing treatment. They are always appreciated more than anything. A prayer goes up for Charlie.

I was absolutely impressed with SPYHOST cyber service's high professionalism and hacking prowess.They successfully recovered my lost password after a few hours of deploying their equipment to allow BIP38 decryption of the private key for Doge I'd held since 2016. There is obviously a high level of trust involved in handing over keys and possible passwords but carrying out my due diligence with reviews and one recommendation from someone I already knew, gave me the confidence I needed. The Doge was worth 100's of thousands of dollars and he deducted the agreed commission and assisted me with getting it safely to my exchange. I've since monetized the coin so it's real. Mightily impressed and grateful for his service after somewhat giving up on thinking I would never realize the substantial theoretical gain. I gave SPYHOST as many seeds of various passwords I had been using around that era and as much information I could help and that greatly assisted the task. Their tech skills and equipment were just what were needed for the job and wish him all the success with lots more enquiries. You can also contact them through their email which is: Spyhost@cyberdude .com

Tracking Down Lost Bitcoins and Other Cryptos:

My experience of online scamming took seconds and cost me thousands. I was fooled by a YouTube video that convinced me that I could make a killing in Crypto, and the minute I clicked the link and deposited funds, I knew something was up, but it was too late. I worked with Captain WebGenesis, A certified and reliable Crypto Expert, it took a few days, and the Expert ensured I got almost all of the money back. It wouldn’t have been possible for me to meet up economically because I almost invested all my money but all thanks to this trustworthy Expert Captain WebGenesis with his genius effort to help me recover my already stolen currency. Please ensure also to consult Captain WebGenesis if you need such help:
