Show and tell…

Sharon Rutledge emailed this story to me a few days ago. She wrote:

“Last night I spent some time with my grandkids. My granddaughter brought out some of her baby dolls and some of her baby doll blankets. This blanket is one I made from scraps that I had. It’s about 16×20. I haven’t seen this for awhile so it was nice to see it was still in service.”

“After searching in her closet I also found the quilt that I made for her about 6 years ago.”

I love both quilts. The subtle piecing of the background sets off the flowers and borders so well. And the doll quilt is wonderful—and both look like they have been well loved. Thank you, Sharon, for sharing!

Books in harmony, two…

I wrote about Chris and Lorna’s books in the most recent newsletter. I just found the blog post from January 2016 showing the very first rearranging of books by color. Click here.

With the newly added shelving, the books now go down the entire wall which is at least 16′ long. Nearly all of the books had to come off the shelves so that new books could be placed in the appropriate color space.

There was a lot of dusting going on. And deep thought.

There are a lot of books with whit/cream spines. I think they sorted those first.

It almost makes me wish I had this many books. Instead I have a kindle with a nice cover…

and an interesting stack of quilt and art books.

Chris and Lorna’s books are way prettier. And more fun.

I, however, have less to dust :-).

Wednesday Giveaway…
