When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you typically spend it?

Last week’s Quirky Question was, “What was your biggest triumph last year—and what would you like your biggest triumph this year to be?” Here’s the winning response:
“My biggest triumph last year was mending a fence between two communities. I was commissioned to create a quilt from the City of Poulsbo to the Suquamish tribe as a gift to commemorate the opening of the new Suquamish Museum. I titled it ‘We Are Connected’ and showcased similarities between the two cultures—Poulsbo, which has a strong Nordic background, and the Suquamish Indian Tribe, of which Chief Seattle was the leader. (The city of Seattle was named after him.) The gift was presented at the dedication of the museum and it was very welcomed and highly praised. I found out later from the Mayor of Poulsbo that the quilt mended a rift that had formed between the two communities. I was not only proud of my quilting accomplishment, but of what it did for my community.”
