Jackpot! Chalkware dogs! Lots of them but since I already have quite a few, I picked up only those I don’t have.
And this vintage teapot that I don’t know anything about but it’s in perfect condition and is so sweet. I’m going to look it up online – cost was $7.00.
I haven’t forgotten about the quilt that so many of you mentioned – the one on my table with the spiral quilting. Here it is. It is a disappearing 4 patch and I’m sure if you go online, you can find the directions in multiple places.
I first saw spiral quilting on Crazy Mom’s blog. I did this with my quilting foot and that’s why it’s so even. Start in the middle and take one stitch at a time, lifting your presser foot and leaving the needle down so you can make the tiny circle. Continue moving outwards from that beginning circle and just follow the width of your quilting presser foot. Use lots of pins or basting spray so that the backing does not become “skewed”. Quilting gloves help immensely. Stitch the corners on their own after the circle is completed.
Oh and by the way, a friend who was in camp is trying to locate Mary Ellen from Madison, WI who was also in camp. She has lost her address and email and would like to contact her. Mary Ellen – if you’re reading this, contact me at email@example.com.
That’s all for today, folks!
