I bet you already know I love cheddar quilts but did you know about my thing for Vintage pink? Like this pretty one I found at Quilt Inspiration. Sharon Holland of Sharon Holland Designs made it.

Then there’s this LeMoyne Star. It kinda speaks for itself. Classic.

Nothing more to say. Well, I could mention I have a stack of LeMoyne’s started somewhere. It’s an option.
Double Pink #1
Then there’s this one that caused me to buy pink yardage some time back even though I couldn’t sew (I was planning for someday).

I love the way the blocks are placed and it would be so awesome on the bed! Plus, like I said, I bought the pink yardage. (It links back to Historic American Quilts if you click on the picture.)
Double Pink #2
As far as a nine patch goes this one isn’t half bad either. As a matter of fact I’m sure there’s

more than enough pink in my stash to do this one. Well, maybe not quite enough variety but I could see and God knows there is no problem in the brown department. (update: pink we’re ok.)

This is here because it’s pink. I’d do the stars different. Maybe…well I’d sure be proud if this were mine.
Leehaven update: the wrist procedure is end of April. Not long at all.
Thanks for sharing time with me! *kd.
Well you’re not doing anything with it!
I know, I know, I know – I’m supposed to be gone but I haven’t been. I’ve had bits and pieces of things to share so I couldn’t stay away and now I have news.
This is where I was Wednesday. The machine was broken, the department was running 45 minutes behind and they were all in a bad mood but I got out of there alive.
So, with the test done I was set for a follow up today until the physician’s nurse called yesterday. He looked at my scan and said I have a ganglion cyst in my wrist. Just what he diagnosed when I saw him in January. My cyst happens to be buried in there – a no-see’um type of cyst kind of like this
So he’s not going to see me for an appointment to discuss what we already know even though I’d like to see the scan and find out if I just have one cyst or a couple. Nope. No questioning for me. Waste of valuable million dollar physician time which is good because that’s how we waste money and bill for medical appointments that aren’t needed but I’m not going to drift off into that topic.
The plan is to go directly in for this —->
It’ll be another month before they can fit me in but I should be back to normal right after that and I can start stitching again.
So until my next drop in… Be Well!
Depending on which version you pick up this one will run you anywhere between 700-1000 pages. I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since I saw the 1967 BBC mini-series. You can read more about that —-> here.
When I purchased the book my Mom noticed it and said my grandmother had shared it with her many years ago. Now I really had to read it. I wanted to see what my grandmother, the voracious reader, was passing along to her youngest daughter.
The writing is beautiful. The way he pulls his adjectives and places them perfectly into the setting to bring you in and make you think is worth studying. I enjoy that. The period detail is interesting. That said – what does ‘saga’ bring to mind? Pages and pages of on-going happenings and a lot of reflective thoughts. A ton. Its great in the beginning, interesting still halfway through but gosh, that last push to the end I thought I’d crack.
I didn’t crack. It’s finished.
Until next update, *karendianne.
Hi again. First, thank you for all the support re: my wrist and for understanding that replying to comments is sketchy on my part. I appreciate your notes but just know its difficult, not impossible, but difficult to reply. Second, I had a pick-me-up the other day before I injured my wrist. This post was written last week.
Remember these?! You can find the pattern at Red Crinoline here. So much fun to make. The center block with frame is 6″ (so you have a point of reference). To get creative with the center element I copied blocks from the Cotton Club BOM to piece. Just so you don’t go thinking that center in the one below on was my idea.
I disliked this red and green one until I picked it up. Quilting makes the Quilt! Check out how nicely that finishes at the bottom there. Incredible. The color thread tones down that stark contrast of the red and white.
Cheddar, I love you.
These are all 3″ Baptist Fans with 1/2″ spacing between each line. Incredible.
I have a pink and green thing. This might be my favorite.
Save the best for last? This one was a crowd favorite.
I have a spot planned for these but everything is on hold. I’m getting an MRI and back to see the Orthopedic Surgeon next week. Maybe we’ll know something by then.
(PS: as an aside, I think its obvious I’m a Bonnie Blue/Red Crinoline fan. If you haven’t read their latest blog post – don’t miss it —-> here.
I needed a little danger music the other day. I was doing something of the cleaning house nature and I overdid it. As a consequence, my wrist is toast. This means typing is limited and sewing has come to a screeching halt. I’ll get back with you but for now – I’m out.
