Happy Friendship Friday!
Many of you were interested in the Nancy Page Snowflake Quilt and I was happy to send a copy of the pattern to you. I am so grateful that Madelon sent some photos of her quilt that features the pattern. She was the owner of the quilt that I saw at Study Group years ago and it is really fabulous. One thing I want to mention is that the background is blue. It's difficult to see the true color (the photo of the full quilt is most accurate).
Thank you Madelon!!!
Isn't this gorgeous?
If this piqued your interest, I'm happy to send you a copy of the pattern. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
What made me laugh this week:
Two local trade cards made me giggle this past week.
Today's ad agencies would never advertise China and Chamber sets together:
Back in the late 1970s/early 1980s I had a friend who loved antiques (actually a lot of us did then). None of us were that knowledgeable but we liked making our homes pretty.
Every time I stopped by my friend's house, I was struck by a pretty pot she had on display on the sideboard in her dining room. "You must really love that pot," I said to her one day. She said: "It's such a pretty soup tureen so I wanted to show it off in the dining room."
Real friends will tell you when you have a piece of lettuce stuck in your teeth; they will also tell you when you suspect their 'soup tureen' is really a chamber pot. I told my friend my suspicion and when she investigated it, the chamber pot was removed from the dining room. We still laugh about this!
Wishing you a safe and happy weekend!
