Crazy Quilt

I love crazy quilts and haven't made one in a long time.  I recently purchased this beauty and thought I would share some images with you!

My cousin has rescued a number of Great White Pyrenees and I was thrilled to find one on this quilt!

 There are a number of umbrellas on this quilt and the strings are sewn on so they are loose and in a way three dimensional!

 An embroidered scrimshaw horn!

Egyptian motif fabric. 

Love this bird!

I hope you are having a wonderful March and enjoying the oncoming spring!  Have a great day!

Recent purchase

Here's a recent purchase I found a week ago while my hubby was home.  We love to scour local antique malls for finds and I just fell in love with this piece.  I'm a sucker for aquas and teals and this definately met the bill:
 The scale is quite small and the condition is fairly good--considering it is almost 90 years old!
I've been remiss with the blog again.  I've been writing and writing, mostly articles and programs.  I'm hoping to get back to more sewing soon!  How are you doing?
