Hi! Thanks for stopping by...
I love.... God, hubby, my posse of kids, wool, jelly beans, quilting, my Canon 50d, watermelon, fabric, Philadelphia Soft Pretzels, TastyCakes, my Bunco girls, laughing, my chickens, antique quilts, buttons, sewing, photography, freshly bathed babies, camping, the sound of snow falling at night, Fiestaware, Elm Creek Quilt books, and a whole lot more! I am a Pastor's wife,a homeschooling mom, a proud Navy mom, and am just downright busy!

A dear friend pointed out to me that I don't have many quilts photos on my blog and wasn't that contradictory to my title, 'Patchwork in the Desert'? So I am posting a picture or 2 to appease my humble following... all 2 of you!
I found the Pansy quilt at Savers, my fav thrift store. $4.99, a STEAL! Better than getting it free if you ask me! I love the colors and date it to the late 30's.
The redwork quilt is another $5 steal! My mom bought it from some kid back in the late 70's/early 80's in Newburyport, Ma. He was using it as a dropcloth and thought his mom might want him to not sell it. My mom pointed out he had paint all over it. He sold it to her for $5. Notice the 1903 date HANDSTITCHED on it! I love it! I finally wore my mom down and she passed it on to me!
