Books can make us laugh, make us cry, entertain us, and nourish our souls.
Working with your hands keeps you young.
Never stop learning new things.

Love to recycle old things
This is a runner I am working on to finish off this warp so I can wrap a width to do a nice rug. This fabric is from an old worn spread. It is peach colored with some tan. Very worn but as you can see it packs down nicely and I love the new color.
Went shopping yesterday with my sister to buy my first new quilting fabric for a wall hanging I have picked out for my first quilting project. So will add a pic. here of the design and fabric. It is a little hard to tell, but the back fabric is dark purple and the one on top is a bright yellow print. So maybe my pansies will be done by spring. More on this later.
