We had our family all together when Dustin & Gina arrived from Los Angeles. Here are all my girls with an antique meat fork or pie crust cutter. I’m trying to pass out some of the things I have accumulated over the years.
The boys each got an awl that I had purchased at my folks sale. Father turned the handles on the lathe to his liking.
We gave the grandchildren each a puzzle or game.
… as a Quilter
I finished a challenge to use this symbol in an art quilt.
It reminded me of the sol in shaped note music. So, I took a picture of a song...
...and printed it out on fabric and layered it with the batting and backing.
Then I machine quilted it +/- 1/8” apart over the whole surface.
I machine stitched over all the music and lettering. I’m calling it “Amazing Grace.” It measures 8”X10” and is finished with a narrow binding and ready to hang.
And now I have started on my second Magnolia which is to be 36” square. You can see my first Magnolia here.
