Today at the Wimberley Quilt Ranch was a very busy day, trying to eat, sew, work, talk, and laugh. Now these have moved around in the way of order and in more times than I should have. We have had a great time re-connecting. Last night we gave out all of our lovies and that was a lot of fun!
Look at all of the lovies we got. Our grandmother, Floy collected owls when we were little and they have now come back in style and it has been fun trying to see what our imaginations can think up.
Pattie came up with a very different and very creative way to remember our “owl” heritage. Notice the owl picture – in the picture the owl has a string of pearls around her neck, she was in the garden club and always cooked, hence her apron and across the top of the print is something she always told us in order for us to come and visit her. Granny would always call one of her nine children and say “everyone is going to be here but you!” and no one wanted to miss out on anything, so we would all try harder to be there and it worked. Although, it is still a family joke that we hold dear in our hearts.
I worked on my reproduction Faceted Jewels swap, month two. Look how they chain sewed. My cousin Margie pointed out how well they laid in a circle – it was kind of funny!
Margie also showed off her “card table” tent she made for her granddaughter. I thought it was cute and I thought I would share. Look at the cute pair of wooden scissors my cousin Tasha gave me!
I decided I wanted to work on my Swirly Girls, Equal Rights quilt, so I did. I got a lot done, I only have 3 more rows to sew together and then I can assemble the rows. Got to love progress!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
