"Summer's loss.....

....seems little, on days like these."  Ernest Dowson

We have had an incredibly beautiful day.  Blue skies. and a sprinkling of color spread across the mountain side.  We need to go for a drive in the mountains this week end.....if we do I'll take some pictures.

A bit more antiquing today.  A set of quilt blocks.  No doubt someone had plans for them.

Lovely bowls! 

A wedding ring quilt.....I have one which I made that is hand quilted.  I believe I made mine in the early 80's.....1980's that is.

Quite a collection of Dutch looking figurines.

I think I will close out the antiques today with this anomaly.

This is a queen sized quilt which I made a few years ago, it is a Jan Patek design which was offered as a Girls Gang project.  Julie, along with Jan are hoping for it to become available as a Facebook stitch along in the near future.

  1. Love how you felt the need to clarify 1980's! I laughed out loud on that one! I love Jan Patek's quilt and would join Julie in a stitch-a-long. And you really cracked me up with the quote from Winnie the Pooh -- I have several relatives that I may have to heed this advice when having a conversation with them! Hahahaha!

  2. Hi,
    I love the Jan Patek quilt. How do I get in on the quilt along?

  3. I'll be looking forward to that sew along ....your quilt is beautiful!!

  4. I want to do that stitch along! I love it!!! Mary Jane

  5. I vote YES for the stitch-a-long! It is gorgeous! And that is a match made in heaven with you and Jan❤❤
