Thank you Soulbrush, I love my Giggles!
And they will look grand on my artists' wall in my bedroom!
First I walked to the post office and mailed the Tribute To Jim Quilt off to his daughter Abby in Oregon.
Then I walked to the hospital guild thrift store and they had some real gems for me to find.
They have a 5 cents bin that was full of ribbons, yarn, and other embellishments that can be used for the ATCs I want to start making.
One of the ribbons caught my eye because it had birds on it. My SIL has asked me if I'd make her a quilt wall hanging for her den that represented her mother. Well, my mother in law is a great lover of nature. She has been an avid bird and squirrel feeder for years all year round, sun or snow, nothing kept her from feeding the critters in her backyard. So the ribbon with birds was very fitting. My MIL is from Berlin, Germany. And when I got the bundles of ribbons home I opened one bunch of ribbons that were all layered together and in the middle of the bunch was a lovely long strip of rich soft ribbon that is very German. It has a couple with the man wearing typical laderhosen (sp?Andrea) and a German crest. There is also a red heart. It seemed that the universe was directing me to items that would be perfect on any quilt I made about my dear Mother in Law. I spent a total of $1.40 for these items including the checkered cloth you see here and a bundle of batting not shown.
My walk was very profitable in all ways, it totalled 45 minutes with power walking between stops and great deals found. ************************
To all my Jewish Friends I wish a Happy Rosh HaShana, A year of sweetness and peace!
