Hey, it's Rednesday again! I'm sorry I haven't posted anything since LAST Rednesday. Just a crazy week around here. I've actually accumulated quite a bit of "stuff" this past week, so I have lots to share, just need to get organized, UGH!
Saturday was my daughter's birthday. Her last year of adolescence. Next year my baby will be a teenager! She is such a sweetie. Just last night she crawled in bed with me to talk and snuggle a little bit, too! I know these moments will become fewer and fewer, so I savor each one I get!
On family birthdays I hang this quilt. It's a pattern by Eleanor Burns, the Quilt in A Day lady if you've ever seen one of her shows. I bought this pattern back in 2000? At the AQS (American Quilters Society) show in Nashville, Tennessee. This is me and my friend, Deb with Eleanor (in the middle.) If you look in the background you can see the her sample of the quilt. I went more retro, a lot of the fabrics I used are 30's reproductions. (Click on it to get a better look!) The kids look forward to waking up on their birthdays to see it hanging on the hallway quilt rack. My daughter loves the sundae with the green ice cream on the right. Even at twelve she pretends to eat that green mint sundae! I guess it's become a family tradition.
Next week I HOPE to have something truly vintage to share. I have something I've been trying to finish for weeks. I just can't get it all together. So, stay tuned!
