Is it true for everyone - September arrives and historically for each of us it has been the month of new beginnings: new clothes, new books, new pens and pencils, new classrooms, new teachers, new friends, etc. etc.? I am feeling very new "beginning-ish". Thus a new color on the blog. We had a great Labor Day week-end. Among other things, I helped several friends to accessorize an apron. We really had such fun working on this project. I had brought along lots of partial blocks that I had in a drawer, just collecting dust, as well as ribbons, crayons and some design ideas. Another friend had paints and stencils and pens. Great fun, really.
GeeGee's for a bit of required fabric shopping. As I only get down to this shop once or twice a year, a visit was mandatory. I will show you what I bought. [Not so much.]
And then on our return today, we were invited to a BBQ at a friends' home. Her mother is here visiting from Kansas and she brought me some quilt blocks for my Dutch friend Caro - if she wants them. They are Sunbonnet Sue blocks, hand done on old sugar sacks. They date from approximately 1932.
Enjoy this new beginning.
