Happy Traveler's Day

Not too much to report that's quilty, but I find that easy, mindless sewing still takes time and effort. I have been sewing the blocks and strips for the Tavern Reds and Cheddar quilt.

I bought these Paula Barnes for Marcus Brothers precut strips from Keepsake's website when they had a 25% off sale back in April of this year. The Mothership itself is great for browsing for fabrics but their website gives very little information about fabric manufacturers. As a fabric snob, this is a problem!

I ironed on a scrap of matching backing onto some freezer paper to do a label for that quickie quilt that I made from 2 Paintbox charms. Now to just find my fabric pen! I used to print my labels on the computer on Printed Treasures, but it just got too pricey and it was a pain to space four to a page neatly.

I caught a sale at Hancock's of Paducah and picked up these Judy Rothermel Party of Twelve beauties for a nice price. But I was unable to gloat because there was no invoice nor catalog enclosed with my order to show what I paid for what. Hmmm. All this paperless trend is going too far!


That large tan piece in the middle is a prize! It is Marcus Brothers' Aged Paper-bag muslin and I bought three yards of it. It looks fabulous with Civil War selections that are often printed on tan stock fabric.

Monday I awoke early to catch this breath-taking sunrise. It reminded me that it's great to be alive.
I hope you have safe travels if you are enroute today to family celebrations and that you enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!
