Aside from "salida" which means "exit" coming out the side of my head......
I have to apologize here...........
I know it has been over a week since my last post, but......
After you see some of the following photos in this post, hopefully, you will forgive me..........
I HAVE BEEN BUSY PURGING!
Lord have mercy! I never realized I had kept so much stuff throughout my life!
My first adventure in garment sewing thanks to Home Economics........
Notice the animals going the wrong way?
My first temporary tags and brochure from my first brand new car....
I always thought I would keep this first new car forever.......it didn't happen.
Love letters from my high school girlfriend Leah, who lived 2 hours from me.
Notes passed in the hall during Middle School!?!?!?!
Ummm....I really don't care if Missy and Chuck made bad grades on
their earth science tests anymore?
Quilting Design Doodling in Chemistry Class
Even then I was thinking of textures!
Am I a sentimental sap or what????
It actually has felt really good purging a lot of this stuff during my move.
I have kept a handful of goodies that my niece and nephew can
throw in the trash pile after I am gone, but, hopefully they will at least
get a good chuckle out of them?
I have been blessed by some very good friends to have a
"home in transition" until I find my next house.
You know who you are, and I am beyond thankful for all of the kindnesses
you have bestowed upon me!
In the meantime........
Many thanks to my friends Bev and Joanie who made a ton of binding from 3 donated jelly rolls
from the QOV block drive.......these will be used up in no time...
Quilts of Valor are being quilted and completed for the upcoming presentations in Kansas City!
in the morning,
in the evening.
Clue #4 has come out for my friend Ann's
I plugged away on this clue while laying over in Boston last week.
In between packing and moving, I needed a couple hour break one day to regroup.
I found a new to me antique mall, and I felt as though I
was being given a helping hand.....or hands.....
Throw your hands up in the air!!!!
Well, better not throw these hands in the air!!!!
They may break!
Other sites I saw at the antique mall.....
Not sure if these are actually "madder red" prints, but, that is what was
advertised on this quilt top.
Humming birds are making a comeback!
This quilt was visually stunning!
I loved the colors and make-do attitude of it, but,
at almost $200, it was way out of budget for me.
Sorry it is so out of focus!
This handy dandy travel iron DID come home with me!
It works beautifully!
I thought of you Randy! LOL
It is perfect for taking along with me when I travel!
Friends, Family, and Quilters........
This blog may be a little bare over the next few weeks as my move is going to take up a lot of my time. Please don't leave me! I must be out of this house by November 5th. I am also going to the International Quilt Festival in Houston Oct 28th - Nov 1st. I hope to see many of you there? If by chance you are there, and you recognize me.....don't hesitate to come introduce yourself to me!
Thanks for ALL of the encouragement!
