Restoration Journey Continues


Please tell me that you havent forgotten about the Dresden files? Well I havent! I am down to needleturn Applique-ing these plates onto blocks. I think #4.. not sure...Its not been an easy ride, but its a rewarding one. I't certainly sharpening my applique skills eh???? I cant wait to be able to post a snapshot journey from beginning to end. I have a file folder for t! I think I shall print and frame them for my customer/new friend Mary. Her kids will enjoy reading about Grandma Amanda one day I'm sure. Today I am flip flopping from the deresden restoration to another restoration job, a 1960's style strip quilt. It's Labor Day week end ya know... I think when I take a break I'll drive downtown just to see the new holiday Pismo Clam. They dress these GIANT rocks shaped like a clam, with a painted pictoral of said holiday. I am so curious to see LAbor day clam..LOL I 'll bring you back a picture! For now, you will have to settle for the labor of me! lol

TGIF and GOOD LUCK TO US TONIGHT! 330 MILLION BUCKS BABAY! I'LL SPLIT IT WITH YA?

Amazing restoration...you've got more patience than me for sure!!

Have a great laborless day and eat a few of those clams for me...with a good dose of vino, of course!

And BTW, my fingers & toes are crossed for the lotto.

A clam shaped rock that gets decorated for every holiday? Alrighty then. Can't wait for the pics.
In the meantime, what a wonderful thing you're doing with the Dresden blocks-making an heirloom for a family.
