So this morning I slept in and then got to work. So far today I've sewn a new pouch for 'female' items; bakes 2 loaves of zuchini bread; made a fruit salad to have with dinner; washed dishes; done laundry and have been packing up all my stuff like a crazy woman! Ugh, I'm tired. But the weekend spent in the woods with my parents, brother, sister-in-law, and the insane person (aka: Kayla Sue, my niece) will be totally worth it!
Anyway, here's my photos for today. I was so excited to see that the photo challenge was where I slept because all week sleeping in 'my room' at my parents' house I've had my favorite quilt on the bed. This is a quilt my great-grandmother made and I know it will someday be mine and pass along through future generations. (Sorry Angela & Megan, the quilt is MINE! There are a few things that mean a lot to me and I know some day I will inherit them, this is one of the items at the top of the list.)
The quilt features squares with all of the states and thier state flowers. I chose to highlight the best state, Ohio of course and took a few close ups of the detailing on some of the flowers. I've been thinking of taking up embroidery and this quilt has pushed me even more and I will start my embroidery on Monday next week. Oh, by the way, since this was made a few years ago, it only has 48 states. Maybe that's what I can start with my embroidery: Hawaii and Alaska's state flowers on a pillow. Hummmmm....good idea!
Well anyway, enjoy my quilt (and the shot of the awesome paneling in my room. Its very old and I hope it never goes away!)
|The Ohio Square. Love my state and I am so glad I moved back here!|
|Close up of the red carnation. Such amazing detail work.|
|Look at these lilacs! I really want to learn how to do this. Too bad my great grandma and I never got to meet.|
|Lady's Slipper. I love orchids and this is so colorful and lovely.|
