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

  1. I don't do crowds well either, but there are so few shows within a hundred miles of where I live that I count myself lucky to get to one.
    I love all your text prints. Any hints on finding them? A friend and I were looking for some for a quilt for her daughter, and we certainly don't know any keys to finding them on-line. "Text prints" does nothing to help, and I just don't keep up with fabric lines enough to know where to look.
    Enjoy your warm day--I'm sure your toes like it (and I was not offended by them)!

  4. That's a lovely block! Nice to see you (and your toes!) here, I tried IG but prefer blog land! Re text prints, I tend to go into an on line shop and use their search facility to see what they have. Someone did a charm swap a few years ago, and I got loads that way

  5. For Dora: a few fabric lines that have text: Daysail by Bonnie and Camille ( https://www.etsy.com/shop/stitchesngiggles4U/search?search_query=daysail&order=date_desc&view_type=gallery&ref=shop_search) there are several colors in text on this page and the following one. Also, Sweetwater almost always has text in their lines. Here is a link to their current three: https://www.etsy.com/shop/stitchesngiggles4U/search?search_query=sweetwater&order=date_desc&view_type=gallery&page=2 there are about 5 pages with Sweetwater's fabric. I've bought from Lori at Stitches and Giggles for at least 3 years now, and she has really good prices and ships very quickly. Zen Chic's line COMMA also has text . YOu could contact Julie at The Intrepid Thread also, and ask her what she has with text and I'm sure she could help you too. She also has great customer service and good prices. If I think of any more, I'll add another comment. Good luck, Hugs, H in Healdsburg
