About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

SIMPLESEW VINTAGE QUILT REVIVAL BLOCKS and CRAFT BOOK SEW-ALONG

I bought this lovely book, Vintage Quilt Revival 22 mondern Designs from Classic Blocks by K.Clark Blakesley,L .Heinrich, and F. Jones. It is a great read, its bright, detailed, and photos, and even if you have never made a quilt square you could after the first block. It comes with a disk too. Its for all stages of quilting and by 3 ladies I have blogged with and I bet you have too.  Then I saw this linky party, Sukie Dont ya know who I am, So its a great motivator, I have been collecting fabric for 4 years to make me a Quilt and its a must now.  I like linky parties when everyone is doing the same patterns, but its not a must here. Plus there are prizes. Hop over to Sukie's and read about it and see what everyone has made, you can jump in anytime. 

 



I will be using lots and lots of blue, aqua,teal and white, and a punch or hit of orange surprise...... 



  Thought this would be a great time to link up with ::: links on
