I sure did enjoy all those fabric images!! I have a Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam quilt that was done by a nice older woman called "Granny Nell". The stitches are tiny! Love that thing.. I had her do it for my first baby.. a girl.

You tree is living up to its name! Just a gorgeous thing right now. Hope that it hangs in there for many years to come and I hope that those leaves hang in as long as they can. Delightful.

I was cleaning my sewing room today and came across my mother's stack of quilting books. I'm going to be perusing those and thinking of you this evening.

This was a fun and colorful post -- enjoyed it much! I'll have to look for the book -- the little wallhanging is darling! Enjoy your weekend and thanks for sharing! :)


I love the chicken girl quilt best! :)

I dropped by earlier, and became so enamoured of the book, that I skipped off to Amazon, but became distracted and am just now making my way back. I purchased a copy of this charming book, and I'm so looking forward to it. A bit of folk art, it reminds me of, and in that way that stands the test of time.

I sure do hope everyone is truly on the mend, and that you will stay healthy as well. I remember when my son was younger and would become ill. Life slowed down in a way that became so much about creating comfort, and homely things. Sometimes I would just sit and listen to him sleep, as I stitched, or I'd put on a pot of soup, and then read to him, or watch silly show on tv. I'd go to bed, but wouldn't sleep, listening, "just in case". Illness in family life creates a certain intimacy.

Nature and life are one, in so many ways. I love the happy, hopeful stories.

Thank you Vicki for the time you spend here.
