HELP....HELP......says our friend Fran over at Making Memories . She is on the search for a quilt pattern. She bought the fabric to duplicate the quilt, but then the lady would not share the pattern. What's a quilter to do.....call on our blogger friends. I thought I might do this post in hopes that someone might recognize the pattern.....so as a favor to me would you all click on her name above and scoot on over to her blog and take a look at the quilt and see if you have seen this pattern before. I think it's a pretty cute quilt and I love the colors.
I also want to thank everyone for all the WONDERFUL well wishes I received concerning the discovery of my extended family. Some of you gals out there will never know how much I appreciated your emails and comments. It's quite possible there is another sibling out there somewhere from another wife my dad may have had!! Who knows.....the last half of my life may prove to be just as interesting as the first half of my life.
I have been busy making more Christmas cottages.....and hand quilting on that baby quilt. I'm shooting for Christmas now with this quilt. My quilting frame that Mr. Brown Dirt made for me has taken some getting used to, but I think I am going to like it. To finish around the very edges I think I am going to lay it out on the kitchen table like Clare says she does. I really am LOVING this hand quilting!!!
I also spent a whole day vacuuming and cleaning the ole sewing room...WOW...fabric fuzzies and dust EVERYWHERE and on EVERYTHING. I rearranged some....moved my "stash" shelf across the room over into the corner where it will be kind of in the shadows instead of where the sun can "see" it. I moved out a dresser and put it in another room AND took out all of the cutesy nik-naks....tired of dusting that stuff!!! My room seems alot larger and spacious now.....AND CLEAN!!! So....I'm ready for ALL that holiday sewing!!!.......Guess I better get to it then!!
