And by ramblin', I mean I have SO many things to blog about today. So, pour yourself a cold drink, sit back and enjoy the ride!
1) Here is this week's One Flower Wednesday addition to my flower garden.
The flower has a purple wasp or fly in the center. Buzz!
If you would like to see more flower gardens, just mosey on over to Journey Of A Quilter . And be sure to let Karen know how much you enjoy the "garden walk"--she does a great job sponsoring it!
2) My sister Karen from Hazel Dell Quilts and I made it to the Sarpy County Museum Quilt Show !! If you are in the area, I recommend going to see it...it's inexpensive (just $2.00 donation) and has some gorgeous quilts, plus a neat museum. Here is a taste of some of my favorites:
|A bold black and yellow string quilt by Joyce Martin|
|Sun On The Mountains by Anna Miller|
Does this quilt look familiar, Jeanine? ;)
|Quilt made in 1930's by Alvera Seidel's great grandmother|
|A close up of the fabrics. They were rayon type dress fabrics.|
|Baby quilt owned by Kay Holst. Made 1937|
|I loved the little birds in the quilt!|
|Sand Castles made by Roxanna Duncan. It is a pattern by Teri Christopherson.|
It is my favorite quilt of the show!
|Close Up: It is made entirely of vintage feedsack fabric.|
|Nebraska Fallen Hero's Quilt #4|
|Backside of the Nebraska Fallen Hero's quilt #4. |
It is a very moving quilt.
3) And finally, I have been quietly decluttering in my sewing room. I re-arranged some boxes and labeled them. One set of stacks is "Fabric To Be Sorted" and the other is "Stuff To Be Sorted." I think it will be easiest for me to purge the "stuff" boxes, so I am going to start with those. So far, I have gone through two boxes of papers and culled it down to 1/4 of a box. Not bad!! I also decided to tackle the small closet in the littlest of the two rooms which house my sewing/fabric.
|Before picture...messy, cluttered closet.|
|Neat, tidy AND....|
A) It didn't get this way overnight
B) Every bit I go through and either throw or give away, leaves me that much more space for the things I really love!
C) Baby steps!!
Back to piecing my life together, a stitch at a time...
