a civil war christmas
about a week ago mr. mailman brought this to me. a nearby quilter that i've only met on the 'net asked me if i would like some civil war fabrics as she was downsizing. she wanted to share with me and vic in NH, also a reproduction fabric devotee. a box arrived with these....omigosh! have no idea exactly how much is here but plenty to keep me in scraps for a while. most pieces are 1 yard or less but there are a few of considerably more. she wanted nothing in return but i have ways of reciprocating that will hardly be as generous, but hoping she will know how thankful i am for this stash of wonderful, quilt shop quality fabrics. and yes, i intend to pay it forward in several ways. vic posted photos of her share earlier this week. i do hope this was prompted by a happy, not sad event, but feel blessed to be one of the lucky recipients. *** it's a cool, sunny and wildly windy saturday here. but just in time, summer starts tomorrow with hot weather. am slowly working on some stars that i'll post in a day or two. and in case you are in need of some eye candy, hop on over to cyndi's blog for a peek at some new fabrics she just got. ooooh those 1892 prints.....love 'em! *** and today's gratitudes are good health, catching up on sleep, summer arriving, family....and fabric of course!
