A story to tell...
That little quilt was my first little quilt. It was a challenge from Sandy and we cut them out together. I figured out that, for me, it was best to nibble on it. Just a bit at a time and then sew something else, come back and nibble some more. Before you knew it and it was done. I'm hooked and still enjoy making small quilts- as the walls in my dining room will attest. Bill has promised me that he will finish the dry wall so that I can paint before a big party here in November. Might even get the floor finished. All a big deal around here.
That peice of McCoy pottery on the chest of drawers sat on my Mom's dresser when I was a little girl and now it sets on mine. Not only do I love McCoy, but I love crockery of any kind. And this set has sentimental value as it reminds me of home. I'd be intersted in seeing others' sentimental pieces.
Off to sew- took the day off yesterday. Can't wait to get back to it!

Mr. McCoy looks right at home in IN. And the wall piece is lovely.

Love the basket...I used to weave baskets and it was great fun. Haven't done in recent years though. Hopefully I could do it again if the desire hit.

Doilies. That would be my sentimental pieces, both old and new.
