A perfect place to display a couple of old quilts. On the left is the first quilt I ever made – Jennifer Chiaverini’s sampler quilt from her first book. It was an adventure, and I learned so very, very much doing that. On the right is the quilt my mother made for us about 40 years ago. We used it for a long time, but as it got worn, I tucked it away to preserve it. The batting was bunching, and the quilting stitches were coming out…… So last year I finally took it completely apart, sandwiched it with new batting and backing, then quilted it just after Christmas. So good to be able to display these. Now, when I get to town next, I’ll look for some storage boxes, to tuck away things that we don’t need to access too frequently, but want near at hand.
And while Grizz was painting and putting the shelves together, I got on with a couple of my projects.
This pile of receiving blankets will go to church on Sunday:
This little candle mat kit was a gift last fall, a perfect addition to decorating for next fall:
Happy finishes! Blessings, Peg
