Thanks for your advice on Friday. I was worried that no one would find the humor in the situation, but apparently I was wrong. As I explained to some in my replies, usually this little guy just gets thrown in whatever basket with whatever other toys, but about every two or three months, I go in and really organize. Today we are back to normal and he is in a basket with all of the other little people - animal and people all together. But next time I get that extreme organizing need, I'll be able to come back to that post because I will need it! It's not the first time I've wondered where to put him
On one of our summer jaunts to see family, my mom, grandma and I went to a quilt show. They were all so amazing and inspiring. Someday I want to make a quilt to put in a show.
I think this is my favorite -it's a mini quilt and those hexagons were miniscule. The detail is so amazing in this quilt, the colors are just perfect, and I love the theme. It's no surprise that this one won a prize.
This quilt top was actually an antique that the quilter had found, added the border and then hand quilted - definitely my kind of project. I could only be so lucky to find such an amazing quilt top!
This is another one I loved for it's vintage goodness- each Dresden Plate is made with scraps from the quilter's grandma.
Another shot to show just how yummy those Dresden Plate fabrics are!
And this one is just fun - I love all these little aprons!
And the aprons bring me to something else I wanted to mention. Design Mom has declared this Thursday, August 28th NieNie Day. If you haven't heard about the tragic airplane accident that Stephanie Nielson and her husband Christian were involved in, you can go here to read about it here or here. I have been reading Stephanie's beautiful blog, the NieNie Dialogues for quite some time now and have been truly inspired by her lovely life. Her accident shocked me. She and her husband are in for months of recovery and the cost will be enormous. In order to help, Design Mom will be holding a silent auction on Thursday and donating all proceeds to the Nie Recovery Fund. She will also provide a link to anyone else who wants to host a silent auction on their blog. And if you feel like you don't have the readership to host your own auction, Leslie at A Room Somewhere will host your item for you - just go to her blog for details and e-mail her. I'll be hosting a silent auction here, probably an apron, in honor of Stephanie's love of aprons.
