Thank you for considering me to assist with the gift, and the quilt is superb.
Thanks Mark! The finial is the icing on the cake! I let it stand a little proud of the cap recess to highlight your great segmenting.

You are so daggone talented, the lot of you.
I got to pre-view the pen and quilt at the CAW picnic, and the photos Charlie shared shows how stunning all of the work was.

I'll go back to my mud pies now...

Thanks all for the compliments on the pen......90% of those go to Mark for his fabulous blanks. I was merely the turner, finisher, and assembly person on this project.

My Wonderful Wifey gets the credit for the idea, wood selection and layout as she had the vision for the presidential pen!

The quilt also turned out very nicely with the help of the guild members, one other quilter and Wifey.....another collaboration in itself.

Now, now, now Charlie... I just glue sticks of wood together! But this was a really fun activity. I thoroughly enjoy seeing this finished in such a nice gesture to someone who appreciates it.

I just did some glue-work! The turning and finishing was all Charlie's effort. Oh, the choice of colors was all Robin. Fun collaboration.

It's an honor to be on the front page, but especially to be on the coat-tails of Charlie and Robin.
