I’m going to try posting this again – I hope I can remember.
I have collected funeral flower baskets for many years – I probably have 40 or more and I decided to enjoy some of them this winter. You might remember that this is Millie’s favorite perch.
This quilt was made many years ago when we were experimenting with bleaching and overdyeing fabric. It was expertly quilted by Gladys in Baptist Fan, my all time favorite quilting pattern.
This kaleidoscope quilt was made from a bag of antique blocks purchased at a flea market.
Here’s a closeup so you can see that the blocks weren’t pieced perfectly nor did all the fabrics match but I used them all anyway – some woman painstakingly sewed these blocks and I loved them.
Here is the same area with all my thrift store blue dishes.
The dog picture in the blue frame was $1 – this is the era of vintage dog pictures I like the most!
The 4-H kids have been making shirt pillows so I made one, too, from an old denim shirt I never wear anymore.
I had more blue quilts than I thought!
Here’s another $1 thrift store find from the other day.
The quilt on the table is called Chopsticks – a project from the old quilt shop.
The bitter cold continues – the goats are anxious to get outside again but it won’t be till next week when we get a break again. Thanks to all of you who posted birthday wishes to Hazel – makes it fun for me to share her with all of you. One of you said -“all dogs should be so loved” and I couldn’t agree more!
I’m going to hit “publish” before all of this disappears again!
