I am blessed to have an....

exceptionally kind, sweet and loving sister in law.  I had she and Bruce pose for a picture together holding up a new design.

It is sorta out of focus....sorry.  Why Bruce has shorts on, I'm unsure.  You will notice Brenda has jeans and a sweater.....obviously different thermostats.  

Here is a close up that isn't as foggy as the other one.

This post will conclude the browsing through crafts and antique stores.

This Dresden Plate quilt was very charming and in great conditioned.  Of course, hand quilted.

This tied quilt was someone creating a utility quilt no doubt.  As written in a pioneer woman's journal, "I make quilts as fast as I can to keep my family warm and as pretty as I can to keep my heart from breaking."  I know I've quoted this before, but I love it so very much.

And all of the days during the week are quite appreciated also.  We do enjoy our week end though.

Isn't this a mishmash  of items?  That quilt in the back is quite a gem though.

Days gone by, with a sweet sentiment.

This was an absolute fabulous hand croqueted piece.  Would be gorgeous on a table or a bed.

  1. I love how you browse through antique stores and give us a feast of eye candy

  2. I wanted to tell you how much I have looked forward to and read each of these recent "travel" posts! What fun! I read them in my email, and often send them on to one of my daughters. Thank you!
