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

Week 2 – #Vintagequiltrevival Block Along

Keeping with my Sea/Ocean Scene and colors we are sewing in the Vintage Quilt Revival Book from K. Blakesly, L Heinrich, and F. Jones.  There are prizes to win every week, but the purpose in the QAL is to encourage the process and to reach a personal goal of either a Sampler quilt or pillow, anything you want to make. There is a Linky Party every week for one block and a flicker group, you can find all the information on this link.

    1. Have you ever done a mermaid? Do you know they have a real magazine about mermaids, My husband pointed it out to me at Barnes and Noble.. Strange huh.. Any ideas for fabric that you would use for a tail??
