|Postitive and Negative|
My birthday was this month. Several of my quilting friends bought me fabric from the Three Sisters line Double Chocolat. It is much too pretty to let lie in a box stacked on a shelf. I also have fabric from the Chocolat (not misspelled) line. And there is the fabric from other 3 Sisters fabric designs in my stash. I decided that I would make toppers for my twin beds, one in positive and one in negative. I am going to use the nine patch technique making a positive and a negative at the same time. I have designed a quilt. I actually designed this quilt when I had EQ6 - now I have EQ7. It has been a long time ago. I made several changes to the original, one thing making it smaller and added a little design element to it. This does not show you much but come back next week and see how it is progressing.
The quilt you see peeking through, I still have two blocks to make, then I will start putting it together. This was my project when I went quilting with my friends.
I am a "sort of" collector of Hall's teapots. My sister has lots of them. I primarily collect a certain pattern, but that pattern (crocus) is very hard to find. Now and then I will find another teapot, usually when I am traveling and I will pick it up. This is part of a built-in in my kitchen. On the bottom shelf are two Hall's pots. They are actually for coffee. The middle jar is a pretzel jar. The handles are pretzels. The middle shelf are all Hall's teapots. The black/white/red chickens are very old. They belonged to a friend who lives in Idaho. They were her mothers, she thought I would enjoy them, and I do. On the top shelf are blown glass chickens. They were a gift from my brother and a one-person teapot (Hall's). I also have bowls and a refrigerator dish and a salt shaker with the crocus pattern. All of the pieces were bought in different cities except for two, they were bought in Cedar Rapids, IA. On the shelf is a black, blue and yellow chicken. My sister sent me that for my birthday. She is so cute, her name is Henrietta.
A quick line about the weather. I complained so about the rain and the cold. We have had absolutely gorgeous weather for the last few days. It is 8:30 p.m. and it is 57 degrees. The temperatures have been hovering between 65 & 75 for the last few days. I love it...........
Hope all is well on your end.
