TTMT 12-5-17: No voice

This week I have been very busy; got a couple of crafty things done (will show next week), made a great buy and worked on cleaning the house a bit.  The last part is why I’m not recording this week; seems taking down dusty curtains, cleaning out drawers and such have activated my allergies and I’m sneezing, red-eyed and voiceless.

However, I am posting slide show of the Baby POD (front and back) with close-ups of the beautiful quilting by Rainey, to whom I am forever indebted.  I decided to sew the binding on by machine and found that using a decorative stitch is a great way to go.

After the POD are pictures of a great buy I made this week along with a bonus.  The buy was a full-size 60+ year-old Grandmother’s flower garden quilt (which came with a quilt hanger that I haven’t put up yet (or gotten Tim to put up for me).  A woman who lives nearby was selling this for her stepson’s grandmother (Mrs. Woodleigh, who is 90+ years old and has just moved into assisted living) for just $50.  I couldn’t pass it up.  After I got it home, the woman who sold it said she told Mrs. Woodleigh how I fell totally in love with it and the woman said she had another one she’d like to give to me.  I went to pick it up and it is the beautiful yellow quilt (I can’t think of the name of the pattern).  When I asked why she didn’t give these treasures to someone in the family, I was told that nobody was interested and that she was just glad they were going to someone who appreciated them.  They are both hand pieced and hand quilted.
