Really Random Thursday, 10/31/13

Remember last week when I did a little research on Flickr's Explore gallery? Afterwards I posted the pictures our daughter-in-law, Christa, took of my entry to Bloggers Quilt Festival, Marcelle Goes to the Circus.
So I followed Flickr's suggestions, uploaded only five pictures, and uploaded this one at the end. was picked up for the Explore gallery on 10/26/13, according to stats, chances of 1 in 17,000!  Since then, it has received 9,609 views! Undoubtedly a coincidence, and  the chances are slim that this will happen again, but it was pretty exciting.

I'm only disappointed that this picture was not posted via Christa's photostream so that all the attention would be going to her photography skills.

My neighbor texted me this picture last night with the question: "Would you want to live at this intersection??" Um, no.

Another friend who lives in Kansas sent me this picture--a photo of something Mark and I used to create called Glassy Quilts. He would make the fused glass frame and I would make the 3" quilt which was hung on a silver wire with beads on each end.
We still have some available. Just in case anyone is interested...

In the next couple of weeks you will find me in these two places. More details to follow.
And that's it for this week.

Your turn.
