Someone wrote that again to me and I'm thankful for the reminder. Felt like I wanted to extend that reminder to all of you once again....and I think that will be my mantra going forth. Not just enjoy the day, but make it more singular with enjoying the moment.
These pictures are from Carriage Country Quilts located in Des Moines, Washington. For all of you who love to embroidery, this is for you. Isn't it lovely?
It is a design by Barbara Smith.
This store carries the beautiful Harold Turpin houses, and this is the Folk Art House.
I was pleased to see my Garden Whimsy hanging in their booth. They did it in all wool and offered it as a block of the month.
Notice the quilt hanging inside this house. All of the houses have a light inside.
I fell for this one the hardest. I love porches for front porch sitting, and this one even has a quilt over the rail.
This quilt was in the Sew Cherished booth, and it was absolutely gorgeous as well as charming. The design was created by a friend whom I've not met yet, and I believe Sew Graceful out of Arkansas has the rights for the quilt. The little blue house in the center is just so cute!
On my trip to California I read on the plane. I love to read, it is right nest to stitching. Anyway, these words were found in the novel by William Kent Krueger. "Worry, and you open the door to the worst of possibilities. Better I think to hope. The heart invites a friendlier spirit for its company." I highly recommend his books.
