Lost and Found

Just when I thought I was going to do better at keeping up with my blog, I have fallen way behind. I was indeed lost but hopefully I have found myself. I seriously think if I would give up the gaming on Facebook, I would have more time for blogging. lol

I found a crewel embroidery piece that my mom had made for me back in the early 70s. For many years it hung in my dining room. when I changed the colors, I removed it from the frame and stored it in my cedar chest. Seeing all the wonderful hand work that mom had put into it I realized that it need to be seen once again. I trimmed the background fabric, added borders, sandwiched it with batting and backing and quilted it. I finished it and now have it hanging in my stairwell to be enjoyed once again.

Back in 2004, I participated in an International quilt project....."to be remembered". Each participant was to make a block and write a story. The block was to have fabrics, etc. that maybe brought special memories to mind. The story was to include information about special people or memories. The blocks were made into one quilt and the pictures of the blocks along with the stories were published in a book to be sold to raise money for UNICEF. 86 women and 4 men from 24 countries and 5 continents participated. I just received my copy.

I always enjoy seeing your quilts again. You should post more of them. This could be your quilt album so to speak. And it's fun to learn about your family and listen to the cool music you pick.
