It's All In The Packaging
I know I'm a sucker for cute packaging. I can't resist. Do I need these small lace coasters? No...but just the fact that Claudia from Peacock Collection Antiques added this cute button to the package made it irresistable. (I'm sure there is a 12 step program for me somewhere...but I just can't make myself go!)
I can hear you almost whispering, "My God, how many did she buy and do we have to view each one of them?" Well....dear reader....I will spare you. But I will confess I did buy quite a few of these cute creations.
I love the combinations that Claudia chose for each package. You can e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have to have some of these too!
Today I've been going through some of my mom's letters. I'm sorting and scanning them so all in the family can have copies. I found one letter that my Grandfather sent to my Mom and Dad when I was about 7 months old.
Just to have a copy of his handwriting and to hear his humor again was wonderful. He still makes me laugh out loud again all of these years later! I miss him and wish I was back in his garden watching him dig potatoes.
I told you that we would be posting a quilt pattern this week....Well here is the picture.
Barb gave me the quilt last night and sent the instructions via e-mail....I just have to get them into the right format and post them here. This quilt takes 2 jelly rolls of your favorite fabric (We used Beach House by Blackbird Designs for Moda fabrics.) and 10 yds. of a light print or solid. This quilt was shown in Houston Quilt Market last fall. We have delayed our quilt book but we thought this pattern should be released now. The ruffle Barb used for the binding is a sweet finish to this quilt. Look for the quilt pattern here in a couple of days.
