Another Antique Quilt on Ebay

I just added another antique quilt to my eBay store… it will be visible at 8:00 Eastern time today, March 2, 2008. This quilt was made in the 1930’s, and has absolutely stunning hand quilting. The quilt has been in my posession for over 20 years now, and I still marvel at the exquisite quilting. The quilt measures 74 x 92 inches, and has a narrow white binding. This is a great example of 1930’s fabrics… each of the little leaves has been painstakingly appliqued, and the stems are all of a consistent narrow width. The batting is quite thin, which explains how the quilter was able to manage such tiny stitches! The quilting motifs are lovely, and a faint pencil line can be seen if you look closely. There is one small stain on the back that does not penetrate through to the front, otherwise the quilt is in fantastic condition. See the photos on Ebay for a close-up of this area.

This quilt will be a great addition to your collection!

Funny site… check it out

I just happened upon a VERY funny (and cute) website that you definately should check out. I Can Has Cheezburger features nothing by photos of cats – and a few other random critters) with funny sayings… Be careful if you click on the link, because they have so many pages to look at, you will get hooked.

Dad is now back in Michigan. He arrived safely last night, and seems happy to be home, though he hates the snow on the ground. Here’s a favorite picture of mine… taken seven years ago in January. He was in Arizona and Bob took the picture when they were at the park playing with Brendan.
