Birthday

I had a birthday last Saturday and my wonderful friends Loreen and Keith gave me red and white fat Quarters - now the decision is - what to make with them ...

A little bit of Christmas ... from Elizabeth

It took a day of sickness, but it gave me the time to stitch this gift from my dear friend Elizabeth.

How old is ric rac?

Well its a fair question but not one that occured until a conversation with quilting friends.  I'd guessed it to have been the 1950's - but the truth reveals just what a baby I am in braiding knowledge.  Its of my great grandmother's generation.  Back in 1886 they were crocheting on to ric rac.  I see the possibility, have inherited some incredibly fine steel crochet needles - but I still wouldn't want to attempt it.

Of course the question came up because of using ric rac in my current quilt.
