I have fabric bits that still occasionally come back to haunt me! Every now and then something will just sort of appear on the floor of my sewing space and I'll wonder what pile or black hole I disturbed that had THAT flutter out! LOL Then there are the pieces I'm saving for just the right project .... of course by the time I find the right project there are no longer any fabrics the right shade to match the one I've been saving for years! Well, if you look at the photos of my stash you'll understand just how long I may have been saving stuff! :D
Hi, Laura! I just want you to know I'm always making comments to my DILs or friends about the things they own and finding out I was the one that gave it to them! LOL (I laughed pretty hard when you said you recognized the fabric! :D )
Hi Laura I am Ranchmom(Mary) and a member of Gifty I saw in your post about returning to Shelton, I grew up on Totten Inlet, I went to School in Tumwater but lived on the bay every summer. When I go to my Brothers in Olympia I still go to Shelton to Taylor Towne to buy Oysters to take home with me. I hate having to cross the Narrows and would drive out of my way so that it did not happen.
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts here or on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
