From Eons Ago

We purchased a scanner for Christmas, and I am in the process of looking through old photo albums and scanning pictures of old projects. I've decided to share some of them with you, on the days when I have little else to show.

In my distant history, I was an avid sewer and did some quilting too. Some of the photos you will see in the coming days/weeks will be from that time period. This first one is a simple quilt, strip pieced, partially machine quilted, and tied with ribbons in the center of the hearts.

I believe it dates to around 1984/5. It was given as a baby shower gift to the daughter of a friend.

I'm not sure what comment you are referring to Minnie. I have been knitting for 38 years. Did you mean where I said, "on the days when I have little else to show."?

By THAT comment, I only meant that I don't always have enough progress in my knitting, on a daily basis, to make a photo worthwhile. Right now I am plugging along on a couple of different projects and will have photos in a day or two.

This quilt is beautiful. I love quilts so much and really envy people that make them. I wish I could make one, but I really don't like to sew...I really, really, don't like to sew. [g]
