We often have people phoning the store with stories of a family member passing and not sure what to do with all the "stuff". This past week was an example of that. A couple dropped off their Grandma's knitting supplies and tucked way down in the bottom of the box was a bag of fabric scraps....you are not going to believe what was in there! A started Grandmothers Flower garden quilt! They didn't want it! Can you believe that!
I couldn't believe it, all stitched with love by hand. From the colours it looks like the 70's but aren't those colours hot now! Don't worry it will have a very loving home at my house!
I actually even love the back, the quilter used old knitting patterns to make the templates as well as paper bags. All hand basted and such small little whip stitches to assemble those Hexies!
The quilt as it is is long and skinny but would work really well for a wide tablerunner so I plan on leaving it as is. This ladies work should be appreciated and enjoyed!
In other news, we have only 3 staterooms left for our Hawaiian cruise. The cruise line wants those rooms to sell at a higher rate. If you are even thinking of coming on the cruise please get in touch with my sister Miriam ASAP. If there is no deposit on those rooms by Feb. 20 the price is going up considerably.
