My back is FINALLY on the mend…thank goodness! This is the first morning that I have gotten out of bed with a spring to my step…and not like Father Moses, all hunched over, moaning and groaning!!
For the last two weeks I have done NO sewing…it hurt to stand and it hurt to sit! I remained on my back… reading! It’s a good thing I love to read…SEW…I plowed through a stack of books…and THIS magazine! Ahhhh yes, THIS magazine…
I love Quiltmania! I mean really, just LOOK at the quilt on the cover…how could you NOT love this issue!! Doesn’t it look like a vintage quilt?! It was designed by Karen Styles and she hit this one right out of the baseball park!! I might have to break my vow never to do hexagons again…:o))
And then there was THIS one…I love the way Quiltmania shows a full on picture of the quilt…no guess work here!!
Plus they also have a staged ‘in action’ quilt picture…another vintage looking quilt!! Swoon…(designed by Anna Griffin…)
Laurie Simpson (of Minick and Simpson) designed this beauty…which also has a vintage flair….
Do you see a pattern here…I seem to be going through a VINTAGE stage of life right now…and NOT just in quilts!! When I look in the mirror I definitely see VINTAGE…yup…everything is fading, the batting has shifted…and then there are those wrinkles!! But vintage is good…right?? RIGHT?
Hmmm… I wonder when a quilt goes from being vintage to being an antique? Man, I’m not even going there….
With those thoughts in mind, this Vintage Quilter is going to leave you…who knows, I may even head into the Sewing Room today…with a slight spring in my step…!
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P
