This has been a no sew day. Hoping for some sew time tomorrow. Really wanting to get this little quilt together from the scraps that were being thrown away. If you have scraps to give away, I'll take 'em!

Finally, I have a photo to share. This is a postcard holder that my sister made and gave to me several years ago. The postcards are vintage with postmarks from 1903 and 1908. The third card doesn't have a postmark. The cards are from my Grandfather's sister. Seems that back in the day, it was the thing to send postcards to your friends, even when they lived in the same town. I have several more vintage cards from the same aunt and they are very special to me and the pictures are so fun to look at. There is probably a pattern online somewhere if you would like to make one for yourself.
The weather here today was just great. The Bradford Pear trees are in bloom so I guess spring is here!

Thank you Connie for the fun swap. I enjoyed making the blocks.
Since I need to set my clock ahead, so as not to be late for church, I am ready to close up the sewing studio!
I realize it is much more fun to have a pic to post, but am just too tired tonight to do it.
Good night to all!

Quilting is my love, besides my family and friends! I have a large stash to work from. But as all good quilters know, we add to it from time to time! I was able to do that on my trip to OH to visit my sister and 4 other quilt friends! When a fabric shop has 50% off of all their fabrics, it is wise to buy. These weren't old fabric either..........charm packs, jelly rolls, layer cakes and yardage from the new fabrics out. It was so much fun to pick some Kaffe Fassette fabrics, that 3 of us split, a little Mary Engelbreit charm with some yardage to go with, and a few other things.
As soon as I am able, I will be adding photos of quilts I have made.
Off to check my blogs that I read and facebook.
