Sharing my treasures.....





The temptation of the jug was just to much for me......and I found a spot to tuck it into my car and it arrived home safely.


When I look at it I have joy, and most of all the good memories associated with it's purchase.


Little mouse threading her needle stopped me in my tracks.  She not only hold a needle, but my small Dovo scissors clings to it also.......and the entire time I'm stylin!


Also, from the highly gifted Stacy Nash I purchased this sewing essential!  It is so beautiful and I treasure it!


This too will bring me joy!


And I discovered this old pewter pitcher and bought it for a song!  I smiled all the way back to my car with it.  By this time all the room we had was a little cranny.  I had to look long and hard to find it! 


Now for our amazing evening at the International Quilt Museum.  The first exhibit was of the quilts by Erica Waaser.......Voltage was a most appropriate name.














Stunning dashes of color for the modern quilt lover.


On this quilt the back side with the unfinished seams are found on the outside.  I liked it better from a distance than I did up close.




More tomorrow.
