A friend sent a link to an article from the magazine, Mental Floss, called "10 Mind-Blowing Art Quilts." This quilt is made by Karyn who owns a shop called "the workroom."
Check out the article. The ten quilts are fascinating!
I have a stack of Fiestaware plates in every color of the rainbow. They are beautiful. We have used them for years, especially when we host Monday Night Football, as we have every season since 1996, with a room full of college kids and then young marrieds. We won't be doing it this year. College kids have grown up, married, moved out of town, all kinds of reasons. It makes me sad to think this era is over. Mark will certainly still watch Monday Night football. I will enjoy hearing it in the background as I work on other projects. Even so, I added to my Fiestaware collection. We never had a creamer and sugar bowl. Or salt and pepper shakers. And then this anniversary color (75th I think...), Marigold, came out. A beautiful deep rich yellow, just like the flower. I couldn't resist. If you are in the area, stop by, have a meal and watch some football with us.Pink Castle!
And the gifts just keep on coming. Mark collects vintage metal signs. This arrived in the mail today.
Need some more fabric to inspire you? Then please vote for Lee. Her fabric design, Flourish, needs a few more votes and I think she could clinch the top prize. So head over and vote for her. I'd sure love to own a yard or two of this cool fabric.
And to end on a good note, a musical note that is...our granddaughter started taking piano lessons from my mother. It warms my heart to know that she will be getting such a good foundation from her great grandmother and that they get to spend quality time together each week.
I hope you'll come back tomorrow for the next edition of Farmer's Wife Friday. Until then, is there some randomness happening in your life today?
