I have tried to quilt. It is a skill that, frankly, I'm just to weenie to pursue. Painful finger pricks and bloody fabric is not really my idea of a great time. So. I just admire from afar. And I do, very much admire. The thought, time and effort put into a quilt just amazes me.
And admire some I did. A few weekends ago, when Sweet Hub and I drove over to Crockett, Texas. A beautiful, East Texas town that was kicking off the Christmas Holidays with an old-fashioned day of food, crafts, and music. One of the events was a Quilt Show and there were some beauties. Take a peep.
But this was the Big Daddy of em all and the one they were auctioning off. It was really, really pretty. And machine done. Hey, I could do that. If I knew how to SEW.
But all kidding aside. I do admire quilts. My Gran quilted and I'm fortunate enough to have one of her quilts. Its beautiful and a wonderful reminder of her sweet spirit and talented hands.
Well, thanks for taking a peep with me. I hope you enjoyed the quilts as much as I did. I think it is always fun to be inspired by new color combo's and patterns.
And we got to eat giant Sausage on a stick that day too! What can I say. It was a win-win.
PS. Thanks for the Etsy love yesterday. I just added some more new things tonight. Some Christmas and some just vintage in general.
