It Feels Like Monday
My applique class last week was so much fun! All the ladies are making this block, I anticipate seeing the finished ones soon! They were such a nice bunch and we enjoyed each other's company very much. I totally forgot to take pictures but will post them if I get some.
My sewing room has been a little lonely lately.
I found a box that I had forgotten about with lots of leftover pieced things.
Leftover wonky butterflies....
A whole bunch of half square triangle! I can't wait to do something with these....
Some other blocks from I am not sure what....
These were cut off sections from a basket quilt I made a few years ago. Maybe this week I will get some time to throw these up on the design wall.
Doesn't today feel like Monday? This weekend we went over to my brother's very cool old house. Check out this wooden transom that is all hand carved. Isn't it beautiful? Underneath is a curtain rod that they used to block off the living room from the dining room.
It has huge windows and gorgeous woodwork, and parquet throughout. Every room has a different floor design.
All of the original light fixtures are still in the house (over 100 years old). This one was a brass gas lit fixture rewired for electric.
It also has a widow's walk! My brother, sister and I were up there taking selfies! Look at the beautiful wrought iron along the edge. It was quite a view!
