The start of 2016 has been busy, busy, for me.
I have worked in the Shop, a lot.
I have spent a lot of time with new employees. (Yay!)
I seem to spend a lot of time on Face Time, with my grand baby, (Hip Hip Hoorah!!)
Physical Therapy twice a week, takes a lot of time, and a lot of recovery.
It is hard to believe we are nearly 1 month into the new year!
I am still not sewing.
I had a big fall in September.
But, I love to look at quilts, and search for new projects and ideas online.
Today, I was looking at a little quilt I bought in July.
There is a great 'Tail Gate Sale' in Country Village each year. I love to dig
around, and find a vintage treasure or 2.
This child's quilt is so sweet. Lots of love in those patches.
It is stained, and some of the fabrics are frayed. I like to think it was well loved.
Most of the fabrics on the front look like late 1800's era cloth.
But the back looks a bit more like the '20's or '30's.
It is tied with yellow yarn.
The inside batting is very lumpy.
I always try to imagine the life of the Quilt. Where it started, what it did along the way,
and how it ended up at a parking lot sale, on a beautiful summer's day.
I've missed you. I will be back soon!
