Ho Ho...It is the midnight hour again...I could not sleep after sleeping all weekend.
I am washing and mending for my sister.
Here is a quilt that had been hanging on her wall in her old home for quite awhile..
The story: She and I were perusing at the Metrolina Antique show about 10 years ago.
This quilt was a steal, but my sister did not have the money.
So the cheeky sisters called dear ol' Ma....
Will you buy this quilt for Charmaine.
Of course, she said yes.
No one loves you like a mother.
Here, the mending of a well loved quilt.
I put together a utility quilt for my niece, 100 years back.
The binding was ripped off from loving..
It is all soft and well used. Now ready to go back to its owner.
I love this cheddar fabric. It was $11 a yard at Mary Jo's Fabric Store.
I was disgusted with the expense, so only bought a half a yard.
I try not to spend more than 5 or 6$ a yard.
I put it next to the wonderful fat quarters Cousin Ann brought me from Hamilton, Missouri.
Now, my brain is going 600 miles an hour..all these quilts to make....
Sleeping away the weekend, wishing for that which will never be.
Will try to take exhausted self to the Queen Bee tomorrow am.
I miss my friends who have been soooo good to me.
