No that is not a typo! Friday my friend, Judie and I finally exchanged Christmas presents and celebrated my birthday that is also in December. This is the wonderful quilt she made for me! We both love the beach and I am so happy that she made a quilt for me. It is going up in my sewing room.
I love the flip flops! We don't see each other very often since she moved away, but we pick up exactly where we left off when we do see each other. Thank you again Judie!
I had another "Christmas " moment Saturday when I came home to a package from my friend Cynthia in Arkansas. These were in the box!!!!!!
Cynthia said "she found these in her mother-in-law's attic and has no idea who made them". Then she re-found them in her attic! She decided I would be a good home for them.
So many things to do with them....
the fabrics are amazing.......
I am guessing 1930's- 1940's?
I am fascinated by the fabric in the center.....monkey, owl, windmill?
football player, badminton ( top right)? If anyone can tell me about this fabric, please do!
The center one reminds me of jelly beans. Thank you Cynthia I will come up with something to do with these.
This weekend Bob and I went to look at an old house that is for sale with the thoughts of a renovation and resale. It looked way better on the real estate website. It is very sad for me to walk through someone's home to see everything still in place. It feels invasive and intruding. Personal items still in place that I shouldn't see, it made me feel sad. The elderly gentlemen was moved out in the fall and died this winter. It is being sold for the liens with a stipulation it is not torn down (deed restricted). I am not sure that is going to happen but will follow it. If nothing else it makes me realize I need to purge even more than I already have!
