I just realized that I had my 5th year blogiversary last month!
So I decided to pick an old post from
when I started blogging and share that with you!
I am going to have to think of something fun for a giveaway to celebrate!
Hmm, since I am sharing something old...
how about if I have a giveaway-a-day... (this week)
and share some of my vintage aprons with you?!?
It will be a bonus for me... because as you know, I have started packing so I can
move next month... and it's a good time to let go of things.
When I started blogging I thought that I would share more about vintage aprons.
I love them and have a nice little collection.
I love sharing more... so leave me a comment and I will pick a name tomorrow
for a winner for an apron from my collection!
Thanks for being there and reading my blog!
Okay, here it is... the big unveiling! I took some photos of some quilts over the weekend. A couple of them will be entered into my guilds' quilt show next month. Please excuse the photography as I get use to all of this. Shew I am breaking a sweat trying to get this all organized on here! Anyway, the first quilt is Star Patch. The pattern is by Jan Patek. I just taught this class at Cottage Quilts last month.
This quilt... I wish the picture came out better... is Figgy Pudding by Fig Tree Quilts. I will enter this one and the one above into the show.
I used the Quilt Soup fabric line "Ellery" for the houses. I had been wanting to do a house quilt for a long time... so this is Cotswold Cottages from Miss Fig Tree, Joanna's book.
Here is a happy spring-ish quilt. Huge flowers! This is from an older Fig Tree pattern. Virginia, a friend of mine did the quilting on all of these quilts... I just love what she does.
Okay, that is it for now. I have one more that will be entered into the show but that one is in my office (at my big girl job). I will take a picture of that this week.
Now, on another note... it is Monday and I have been happily in the sidelines yet still a part of Red Geranium Cottage's (aka Sharon) looser Monday group. I am happy to say that I did lose 4 1/2 pounds! I gave up drinking hot tea in the morning. This, if you knew me you would understand, was a hugesacrifice! Mr. Earl Grey: I still love you... I just can't have the caffeine
right now, you understand... okay not just the caffeine-the sugar, the cream, yada yada!
Thanks for stopping by!
