First of all, thanks to Sue for sharing that wonderful story about the inmates who are now quilting. Everyone loved that story Sue!
How are you all doing? No seriously. How are you making out in the pandemic and the weather challenges? Around here, more and more employers and organizations have decided to remain virtual. Please wear your mask (even if your vaccinated) and stay safe!
Another question--do you have a favorite pattern for a big floral print? I'm just checking around and mulling a new to me fabric that I love. I bought this new fabric from Connecting Threads:
I'll make a little wall hanging for me but I bought enough yardage to work on a quilt. I'm collecting ideas right now. Sue gave me a few when she encouraged me to buy the fabric but I'm still unsure. I won't make a decision on this for a few weeks when it's cooler.
On the vintage stuff front. Today I'm featuring baby bibs. I'm not keeping them. Some are going to Beth for her many grandbabies to use, some I'll sell at a later date. Some older ones:
Safe from the storm here in East Tennessee, but those west of Nashville are suffering big time. So much devastation and loss of life in a matter of minutes -- hard to fathom.ReplyDelete
My husband packed out of the house to live with another woman who he met at work and he sent me divorce papers. I did not want divorce because I love my husband very much and I don't want my family to break apart. I suspected the woman used a spell to tie my husband so he cannot return to his family. I was searching for tips on how to win my husband back and i come across a comment which says Dr Jumba helped her to recover her husband back after several months of breakup and i took the email of Dr Jumba that was present on the comment and emailed him about my problem and he replied back to me and help me to recover my husband back within two days and right now my husband is back with me and he is even more loving than before. You can also contact Dr Jumba for help on his email: email@example.com or you can call and whatsapp him on +19085174108. Dr Jumba is the best spell caster and I am very happy to testify of his good work. website : https://drjumbaspellhome.wordpress.comDelete
Libby, We in NJ remember hurricanes Irene and Sandy. We can appreciate the heartbreak folks in Tennessee are experiencing. Where do you start to put things back together? And greiving the lived ones lost. Somehow we go on. Not easy. Glad you are safe.ReplyDelete
This past two months I have really felt pandemic fatigue. The weather here has been a series of huge storms with lots of wind, which has led to our losing a very large tree and loss of power for days. I, too am so sorry to see the losses in Tennessee. And of course there's all the fires....ReplyDelete
At any rate, cute bibs you've got there. I cross stitched several bibs for friends, but never seemed to make any for my kids!

I had a large floral reproduction by Pat Nichols for years before I finally got brave enough to cut into it. I realized instead of piecing it, I could cut it into big squares and put flying geese sashing around it. It turned out much more lovely than the pictures show.ReplyDelete
Sorry Michele, I can't seem to get the link to work.ReplyDelete
I used large floral prints in a Country Lanes quilt, for the center of the block and used batiks randomly color wise for the stepping stones out from the center. Turned out so well one of my friends wanted to make one similar. Granddaughter got it after graduating high school.ReplyDelete
