I did miss each and evey one of you, whether you are a regular commenter, or just stop by now and then ;) And I did miss reading all your adventures when I couldn't log on. That was part of my
And I've been busy.....
I am almost finished with my small lap quilt (or large wall hanging) which will be going to a quilt shop next week to be put up for sale. This one was created around some antique patches that were found in a secondhand store. It is now extensively hand-quilted, which I believed would be a fitting tribute to the patches and the woman who sewed them. As soon as I finish the binding I will post the completed photo.
Next on my UFO list is the kaleidoscope quilt made from vintage housedresses and aprons. This will be my first attempt at machine quilting, but I think it is a fitting project. It's simplicity deems a simple solution. I've got some time in November devoted to this.
Psssst, Cherie! I went to Brooklyn last month to visit my son and had a great time. It was a Saturday so we stopped at Smorgasburg and went to a few of the vintage mall/markets. Meeker Street is slated as a definite return visit. It's a good thing I can't tote a sewing machine home on the train ;) Mast Brothers Chocolate is yummy (especially the Stumptown Coffee bar), and Momofuku cookies are THE BEST! I'm planning a trip back there in early spring as a revival after the holidays but I'll schedule it so I can go to Brooklyn Flea this time....and I'm saving my pennies so I can splurge ;)
More to come! There's so much catching up to do...
I hope you've all had a great summer!
