Early this summer my sweet grandmother passed away at the age of 95. She was such a sweet and fun lady- I have so many fond memories of times we spent together.
My grandmother was a great seamstess, weaver and knitter. I now have her Singer sewingmachine dated 1927, I have to take some pictures and share later.
My parents and my aunt and uncle have been cleaning out her house, and they found this cool spoolshelf. As you can see it is made from threadspools. I can't remember seeing it before, it was down in her basement.
Here you can see the whole shelf- pretty neat! It will be living with me pretty soon- I think I'll have to fill it with some lovely fabrics and pictures of my grandparents.
Over to some quilty business..... I am so excited to be part of the "Some kind of Wonderful" Stitch along.
I've had the book for a couple of months, and I really wanted to make this quilt, and I am thrilled to be a part of the SAL group!
Here is the first block- Now I need to decide on fabrics- I might just make it all from my stash....
Tomorrow we're heading for Rome- I think I will have some Italian Ice Cream to help me decide on my fabric choice....
Ciao for now- I'll be back next weekend!
