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.

TTMT #247 – jewells68 – November 28, 2017 – King’s Crow Goodbye

This was a rough week for us. Fluffy was having some difficulty getting around starting on Monday, then seemed to be getting better, but on Thursday afternoon, she seemed to suffer some sort of major stroke and we had to say goodbye to her on Friday. It was very sad, but because Phebe was home from school for the holiday, we all three got to say goodbye to her. So i am glad for that. She has been worried all semester that Fluffy would go while she was away at school. Sunday I took Phebe back to university.  We are a house in a combination of mourning and adjustment. Phebe was 4 years old when we took Fluffy in as a stray kitten. So she’s been a part of the family most of Phebe’s life. We are already missing her and remembering all the quirky ways she had.
