I think the extent to which I have any balance at all, any mental balance, is because of being a farm kid and being raised in those isolated rural areas.

Day 117 of 365

Quilts on a Rack

The Sunbonnet Sue was made by Mike's mom about 70 years ago. The spool quilt top I sewed together from vintage blocks I found at a flea market for the wonderful price of 50 cents each (42 total blocks). The framed pillow sham was made by my great great grandmother. The Grandmother's flower garden was a quilt fragment I found at a flea market. The needlepoint parlor chair is one of a pair that belonged to my son-in-law's grandmother (which they graciously allowed me to inherit!).

Hi lovely lady.
I also love your Gorgeous Heirlooms sweet, I have ten Quilts from family and date back to the 30's.
I love coming over to see you sweet lady.
I would like to thank you so much for your sweet comments on my Valentine's Day Tablescape so sweet of you.
I hope you have a wonderful week with your family.

I am a little bit jealous {in a good way} of you because of all the things you inherited from your family way back. I am making quilts, {because I like that very much} so my family can inherit them {I hope}
Sorry, for the bad English.
Love the quilts though.
