When I was making my barn quilt, and had leftover triangles, I immediately thought to ask Janet if she wanted them. She did, and offered to make me a mini-ornament from some of the fabric in return for the triangles. Well, she sent me not one but two beautiful little quilt block ornaments. They're the brown ones you can see below...the green one she sent a while back after I sent her my leftover triangles from my Goodnight Irene quilt. And I'm so happy I finally found a place to hang them! I've had this cute wire hanger for ages, but never found a use for it. Now I have, and I love it! I just need to find a couple other things to hang from the other two hooks. You can see a better picture of the ornies on Janet's blog HERE. Thank you so much Janet! :0)
I was sorting through some things in the basement this morning, and I found this owl cross stitch my grandmother made many years ago. It was framed at one time, but now I just have the cross stitch piece. It's a bit dirty so the first thing I'll do is give it a soak and see if I can get it to come clean. If not I may tea stain it a bit, since there's a definite stain on it to the right of the one branch. Then I can figure out what I want to make this into...probably a small wall quilt. Gram's gone now, so it will have extra special meaning once it's done and on the wall.
