I can’t help myself. If it was textile-y at November’s Sage Farm show, I probably snapped a photo of it.
The same dealer who had the amazing Old Order Amish “Sunshine & Shadow” quilt also had this set of painted wooden “Color Cubes.” She didn’t think they were intended specifically for quilters, though. Instead, they were the equivalent of modern pattern blocks. My kids had a set of those and loved them! I can totally see a quilter playing around with these.
Thank goodness this is a joint blog because Luray has been posting and posting while I have been glooping hot glue on lots of vintage stuff to make Christmas wreaths. I’ve got a baker’s dozen to send to Sage Farm next week for the December show.
Ready for the Big Reveal? Here’s wreath number one…
They’re all beauts!
First up, check out this tied quilt displayed on the wall. This must be Grandmother’s Flower Garden at dusk. That splash of red down the middle is startling!
Hey, it’s still Thanksgiving, isn’t it?
At Lurayville there is still a lot of turkey in the fridge, along with apple-cranberry pie and pumpkin pie, so it’s still the holiday for us even though I’m going back to work today in the new-fallen snow.
We’re leaving our Thanksgiving decorations up, too. Which is easy, because there are only two of them: that melty plastic popcorn turkey, and this melty plastic popcorn Pilgrim boy.
While I’m waiting for an apple-cranberry pie to finish baking, and for BluesRay to make it home through the first snowfall of the season, here’s a little bit of vintage goodness.
If you’re old enough, you remember these!
Don’t you love the Barbie doll-like Scots lassie?
