Everyone needs a "this & that" post!!! So here is mine!!
Been stitching and accomplishing some things, but oh so much I have planned to do and so little time!! Hence less posting and commenting!! Miss that!
Grandmother's Choice blocks! For once I made one on time and I'm not behind!!!
I had nearly forgotten that I had not posted about the sweet, surprise gift that I received from Dawn!! She recently moved from California to Colorado ( I was raised on the Western slope of the Rocky Mts on the Wyoming/Colorado border) so I felt like she was moving to my "home"!!! She has an amazing blog and is such a student of antique quilts and sewing gadgets - her posts are always a treasure trove!! Several months ago, I purchased one of her patterns, and am looking forward to the day when I can start it!! Anyway, after she moved, she sent me the most gorgeous toile "Colorado" fabric!!!
Be sure and click on the photo to enlarge and get a close look at the lovely scenes!!! I"m waiting for just the perfect project, but for now I love to look at it and drool!! Thanks Dawn!!
This past week I received my "falling stars" quilt from Janet O., and it's a thousand times more beautiful in person than on the computer!! I love, love, love it!!
My photos really don't do it justice either, but wanted you to see that it has a "center of attention" spot!!
And the last of the "this & that". I sewed up a shoe caddie! Our closet/dressing room was in the old part of the cabin. We had taken out some windows and boarded them up on the outside, but on the inside there was still the space. That space is behind my hanging clothes, but I need a place for my dress shoes and bling/bling flip flops! I had some very heavy upholstery fabric that had been given to me, so I googled some info and then designed my own! I'm pleased as punch! It has 20 pockets and of course I made it to fit just in the spot! Now the drawer that I had my shoes in can be used for more fabric!!! Yeah!!!!
Blessed Fall Ya'll!!!!!!
