Changing the Subject

The garden pictures were spectacular.  I like the rows of succulents, and the big stone planters and how well manicured all the gardens were. I will have to research ranacculus…I only know them as potted plants.

I haven’t reported on my quilting lately.  In Tuesday’s sewing group at Judy’s five of us are making a quilt called Granny Squares. It was designed by a person who wanted to learn to crochet an afghan made of granny squares.  Working on this brings back memories of my grandmother.  She always had a crochet hook or an embroidery hoop in her hands.  I guess I inherited that from her.  You inherited her ability to throw anything out that wasn’t fastened down.  Rumour has it that my grandfather, who was a contractor, had an original key from Independence Hall in Philadelphia.  Grams saw no reason to keep that old thing around.  Here is a crocheted version:

I’m using fabric from my stash:

I quilted the most adorable baby quilt ever made, Claudia made this:

Here is a close-up of the quilting, a style called Baptist Fans:

I was ecstatic to find the fabric the last time I visited Lancaster. I think the brown and red fabric really looks like the knitted socks that sock monkeys are made of, doesn’t it?
