Rita's Fariy Block

Here is my work on Rita's block for the newest Fairy Round Robin.

Hubbie and I went to a few garage sales yesterday. I found this chair. It was only $1. I think I will fill in the back "hole" by cutting a board to fit and recovering it with some fabric. It is pretty sturdy. Just needs some sanding and some wood for the seat? Does it have possibility or am I crazy?

Kathy's Finished Under the Sea Block

Another finished block from our Under the Sea Round Robin. This one belongs to Kathy S. I did most of the lower right hand corner.

The online crazy quilting community is collecting blocks to make quilts to be displayed to raise money for the earthquake victims. I have finished my two blocks and will be mailing them off tomorrow.

Japanese Pin

I purchased this pin at a garage sale. I was told it is Japanese, but do not know what it stands for? Can anyone help?

Garage Sale Goodies

Garage and rummage sale season is in full swing. I always look for pretty vintage linens for use at home or to cut and using in my crazy quilting. These are some I acquired at sales over the last two weeks. None cost over 50cents.

Mother's Day Giveaway Win

I follow blogs of many creative people. One of those is Patricia Eaton.  Her blog is Bird's Nest on the Ground.  She recently had a giveaway, and I was the lucky winner.  Included was a beautiful recipe box and cards, Vintage apron and table runner, and a pendant made of the case of a watch pin. They are just lovely. Here are a few pics!

Mother's Day 2011

Mother's Day was peaceful and relaxing. Went out to lunch at a Chinese restaurant with my son. Later, when Fuzzy came home he surprised me with this little cake.

Finished Under the Sea Block

Before and After Pics for the Block I sent around for the Under the Sea Round Robin. I got the frame at a rummage sale for $1, I think the Piece looks great in it.
