My beautiful jade tree was the victim of squirrel rampage during the night!
I have pruned and shaped as best I could to end up with this.
I think it can come back if I’m careful with it. All the pieces that were chewed off or pruned off are waiting to be potted. So much work but I just can’t throw them all away.
I hope I can save some of them.
I bound this quilt in the shop this afternoon and let the kitties go outside for the first time – oh, how they loved it!
Designed by my friend Rose so I’m calling it – drumroll, please –
ROSE’S RAMBLING ROWS
Someone’s bound to ask how I quilted it so here it is. Whenever I can use a middle line of stitching it’s easy. One line close to the top seam, one line close to the bottom seam and then one down the middle. They are not evenly spaced but close enough – I do this freehand on the longarm machine and it probably didn’t take me even 2 hours. I’ve always told you that piecing is my game, not quilting.
You can order Rambling Rows by sending $5.00 cash or check to Mary Etherington, 2345 Palm Ave. Garner, IA. 50438. Please include a self addressed stamped envelope. I will not send it without your SASE.
And you can still order Oh, Susannah! for $20.00 PPD. Please include an address label along with your cash or check.
Remember when I met Peggy and Richard at the Hubbell House a few weeks ago? This display is in their lobby.
Church picnic tomorrow. Here are quilts from Vicki. Man, does she work fast!
