I've spoken to you about my dad before and how he comes across such wonderful finds for all of us at garage sales, estate sales, and fleamarkets. He'd be a good shopping buddy for you Edgar. Anyway, he ran across these and brought them to me. I love checker/ chess boards so that one is a future stitch for me. I'm not big on bell pulls but I love samplers and the bell pull in the other magazine has really caught my eye. I don't know if you can see it well .I tried taking a close up of it but the image keep turning when being uploaded so I don't have a good shot of it. These are older magazines and I don't even know if they are still in print. Anyone have any idea?
Here is a shot of one of the flannel quilts that I have made. I made one similar for my dad several years back for Christmas . I titled his 'A Walk in the Woods' because of all the different woodsy fabrics it had. When I made mine ( below) I added some lighter fabrics to make it a little more suitable for a female. I titled it 'A Walk in the Woods II'.It's a lap quilt and my son uses it sometimes when he's cold ,but the way the boy is growing he's gonna need that other one finished pretty quick!
Here is the best close up I could get of the handquilting. Hopefull you can see some of it.I did stippling across the entire quilt. I know this isn't a great picture. Kind of embarrassed for Edgar to see this one as he always has such great pictures on his blog.
Yesterday the house was filled with a wonderful aroma that lasted nearly the whole day. Hubby was making deer jerkey. This plate was full yesterday, this morning this was all that was left. I had a couple of pieces and the guys ate the rest! I just love this set of dishes. They were from Pier 1 .My sister gave them to us as a wedding gift many years ago. Sad to say that I'm lucky if I have a full 4 place setting after the ones that have gotten broken over the years.We started out with an 8 place setting.
That's it for today dear blogging buddies. Thank you all for your wonderful comments .They're so appreciated! Peg- I'll keep your framing fella in mind, thanks.
'Til next time,
