It has to be a mess before it gets to be good, right?
I keep finding things in this old office – things I haven’t seen for awhile. Like the very first quilt kit – the madras plaids! Way back in the 80’s ? we fell in love with madras plaids – we talked about this not long ago. My mom was still alive and she packaged all the plaid kits for us – nine different 9” x 9” squares of plaid in a bag. Then we designed several patterns that used those nine squares such as this little star quilt.
I remember Mom loved laying those 9 assorted squares together. We couldn’t have done it without her!
And cards! You’ve all sent so many fun cards through the years and I’ve kept so many of them but now I have to let them go.
Two vintage pieces of linen that needed soaking.
And I had forgotten I ordered this issue featuring Sandy Gervais who lives just 25 miles from us. She was so kind to mention us in her interview – I had no idea we helped her renew her love of fabric! We always loved seeing Sandy in the shop and one of our staff sewed models for Sandy for many years.
Oh, the memories in this office.
I’ve marked this basket quilt in this magazine and would love to start it but let’s be reasonable – Dirty Dozen Day is coming Friday and I’m almost done with my neutral project.
Tomorrow must include the grocery store and then more clean up. Eventually I want to shop for MY chair – where will I go to look?
Saw this on the tv – sorta looks like I might have created this show – What are you mad about? Haha! If I had been able to stop on Main Street and take pictures, two local pickups would have been posted here. Not even pulled up to the sidewalk and they’re too long in the first place – two cars meeting on Main Street behind those trucks had to swerve out. Arrogant at best. There’s a Facebook page called Parking Pricks of the Midwest – I joined their group! Haha!!
Becky put up her 8’ tree today – isn’t it beautiful? Hmm – I don’t even have that on my horizon yet.
