A Nice Week
While at Sherry's the other day, she got out some of the girls' and her old dresses-some she had made and some I had made. What fun to see dresses I had sewn for Sherry when she was small. I didn't realize how many of them she had. There was also a darling dress that she had smocked for one of her girls. She has always been a good seamstress but has not had the time for it for years. Then there was this little wallhanging that I made for Hannah in 1989. I had forgotten what it looked like. Back then, we didn't quilt as closely as we do now and quilts were much puffier. This one is hand quilted and hand appliqued. I brought it home but, of course, it will go back after I have taken it to show and tell. Such a difference in the fabrics and styles from the present.
Tuesday when I went out to lunch with some of the girls, Linda brought me the quilt she has quilted for me. As usual, the quilting is beautiful and I am so happy with it. This one is for my daughter and I will get it trimmed and bound soon.
Haven't we had just gorgeous weather? I love, love, love it! Hope your weekend is a great one.
