I recently saw someone post about receiving this amazing pin cushion on Facebook. Oh, I love the internet!
I did a little research, found out who makes them and ordered one. It's like a little dress form! I got to pick out the fabrics and trim!! Love it!
This is a card for Cindy Thompson, who made it for me.
One of the first places I wanted to go in Bend was to Tuesday Morning, which I had heard was selling Benartex jelly rolls and charm squares. I'm hoping it's "authentic" fabric, although I only bought two packages of charm squares (needed for Ryan!!)
Over the weekend, I read an article in the NY Times where they were reprinting outstanding college application essays from high school seniors around the country. I read this one and thought you'd enjoy it. Hopefully you can read it. This student reminisced about her grandmother's quilting. It is very charming, I think. Very impressive for an 18 yr old!
I've been working on using a bag of bow ties I made years ago. My May mini! Wendy Reed, take note! Hope to show you in a couple of days.
