Merry Christmas everyone

Merry Christmas everyone
with the love of my life, George

What am I doing writing a blog?

Quilting is one of the few places in my life where all the corners meet and stay put. On this blog I plan to ruminate about quilting and life, the quilted life, cat and quilts, and any old thing that falls in and out of my brain. I'd be pleased to hear from you on all of this or any topic of interest!

My new recycled old fashioned nightgown

Remember I was telling you that I was recycling a two pair of Martha Stewart 100% cotton curtains into a nightgown? Well, I finished it last night and here it is. It is a little big on me but being cotton, I will wash it and dry it and see if it shrinks a bit. Please notice how I used the embroidery on the curtains in the yoke, sleeve hems and skirt hem. Pretty clever, huh? And also here is the new sewing machine I picked up at the Greensburg Goodwill Store for... wait for it... $12.00! What a bargain and it works perfectly!
