I am so, so sorry to be absent, my friends. I have been busy with Christmas decorations and family business. Yesterday my sister brought me these two Christmas decorations that I sent to my aunt many years ago. I recognize the one as Little House Needleworks. I made the pillow a bit too small but it is a good finish. The cube was one of my first and the project and ribbons are held in place with pins. A No Sew Cube finish is what it is. I would do it so different today. It is fun to see these again. It is sad to think that I gave them away and they are now returning because a family member has died.
I also found this quilt. Purple!!! Oh excuse me..... focus, focus..... This was made by a great grand mother on my mother's father's side? I have to research this better. The quilt top is all silk!!!!! The back is flannel type fabric. There is a card with an explanation of it's origin on the back. Like I said, I have to do some reserach. SILK!!!! It is in wonderful shape. I am not sure I could even use it for fear of damaging it. I want to see what type of stitches were used, who made it, all the details I can discover.
