On Memorial Day, We Remember ...

"And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave,
for glory lights the soldier's tomb, and beauty weeps the brave."
--Joseph Rodman Drake


Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!  When I was old enough, mom & dad gave me the Kokeshi Doll they had bought in Japan when I was born.  As you can imagine, I treasure it.  She's only 3 1/2" tall, but these Japanese "bobble heads" come in all sizes. Mine is "vintage", but here's a modern-day craftsman at work:  Kokeshi Doll in the Making  Thanks Mom ... love, faith.
Egg-cellent Mug Rug Pattern
Doodle Time Designs


Little House on the Prairie (LHOP)

Have you seen the "Little House on the Prairie" line of fabric from Andover?  There are several groups to this line, but one of them especially caught my eye:  Scenics & Icons  I love the girl running through the prairie grass & the Quilt Label panel.  So sweet they make you smile in remembering. But, I make mostly itty bitty things - what to do?  Stay true to yourself, of course!  Thank you Miss Beadle :)

Quilt Labels make wonderful Pin Cushions - don't you think?
Lots of "Last Minute Mug Mats" + "Love Notes"

Another Colorway - More Mug Rugs!
love, faith.
