On Christmas morning I had lots of lovely gifts but these were two special quilts gifts that I adore. My son bought me the BOOK of The History of Dutch Quilts that is now printed in English, I have got to tell you it is the most fabulous book- wonderful pictures of old dutch quilts. I am so glad I hinted to him in a very small way that I needed this book- It is a joy.
My second lovely gift was some lovely fabric, a pincushion pattern and a wool tree ornament from Frances. She really knew what to send me- would you believe a coordinating range of Lecian fabrics that just happens to have a bit of Toile in it. Thank you so much Frances I love it. You will have to keep reading now to see how it is used.
|THREE CENTURIES OF RED AND WHITE QUILTS|
The other exciting thing is my PIC and I had been talking for some weeks about going to the American Folk Art Exhibition of Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts . Well she sat on her end of the phone and me on mine while we discussed options . Before I knew it I pushed the button so we are off to New York In March. Goodness knows what we are going to be like. Well I expect you have guessed that we will be like a couple of kids let loose in a sweet shop. Whoopee.
If I have learnt anything since DH has had Alzheimer's is that our time here is not a dress rehearsal and to make the most of life.
