This and That

E3 checked out my new toy. He will get a chance to try it out soon!

I listened to this book recently. It hits home for those of us with aging parents. Keep your Kleenex handy.

Speaking of parents, I visited my mom last week. My sister and I took her to this park we frequented as kids. It’s just as beautiful as I remembered.

We love to thrift together, and I found this chair at Habitat Restore. For ten bucks, I had to bring it home. Daughter #3 did a bit of research and found out it is an antique saloon chair!

It was repaired a very long time ago. Sure wish I knew the story of this one.

I think this will live in my Arizona house. it seems to belong in the Wild West.

Have a great weekend!

  2. Looks like it came through a gen-u-ine bar fight! Many stories hidden in the wood.

    This is a comment about a previous post – your welsh quilting. I too have fallen in love with it, and am looking at trying it on a wedding quilt. Yikes! I have a long arm and consider myself a beginner. I love ruler work, and think I can do a lot of the designs with rulers. My concern is it looks like it could be a lot of starts and stops. Did you worry about that or try to make continuous designs and just keep going? Any advice you have in general? You do such beautiful work!
    Thanks! Debra

  4. E3 is giving some serious thought to that new toy; I’ll bet he’ll have fun helping you cut fabric with it. I’m pretty sure that chair has some stories to tell! You find the coolest stuff at thrift stores!
