If you follow my blog regularly, you know of my constant quest for the elusive “neon” (20th century term) fabrics of the 1890’s. They were in fashion for such a short period of time and although there were a great many of them produced, they are very hard to come by. There have been a few reproductions over the years – but NEVER enough! I have amassed quite a collection, so it is always fun to find one that I don’t own. I opened my mail last night to see this lovely pile pour out of the package. Wow! Kevin (Kevin the Quilter) knows how much I love them and actually found one that I do not have. This was from a line done by Pilgrim and Roy and this particular print was my favorite in the line. I have it in green and black, but not the brown (until now). Thanks a million Kevin!!!!
The cute little stiletto is from Rose (Something Rose Made)
The gingerbread soap is from Janet (Rogue Quilter) I keep it there for the aroma!
The little lady bug needle threader is from Karen (no blog)
The little mouse pin cushion is from Charlotte (no blog)
The wool pin cushion on my Ott light is from Susie (no blog, not even a quilter)
The mug rug under my cup is from Randy (Barrister’s Block)
The mug is from my guild (PTQG) for services rendered
The mat under my machine is from Kathy (no blog)
And, the little 1 ½” squares (my current feeder project) are from Cyndi (Busy Thimble) who gave me 742 at my last visit!
And this is but the tip of the iceberg. My entire
sewing room house is full of special gifts. For these friends
and those not mentioned above (you know who you are) I am extremely grateful!!
