Productivity


I have learned that my habit of keeping fabrics, quilt blocks, and etc. for years is a good one to have. For example, these 2 Dresden Plate rings were given to me during one of my grandmother's Great Cleanings of Her Sewing Room. I appliqu├ęd them onto black fabric, folded them up, and stashed them away.
Years later, they make a fine wedding wall hanging, even though the purchaser just realized she told me the wrong date! Seam ripper, ahoy!
The tiny little squares making the borders are from a bag of fabric scraps Tiny Montgomery picked up for me. Thanks, TM! Even though the rings are from the 1930's or 40's, and the squares are from the 60's and 70's, they work well together.
Thus was my Friday morning. Oh, and when I let the dog out at 3-freakin'-AM, guess who was getting into his hot tub? That's right....my hoosier neighbor. I love South City.

I'm so glad you got to use the teeny squares! It's gorgeous!

My garden looks so tiny in comparison. Midwest vs. Northern Northeast I guess....
