Monday Making - early

The Monday Making linky party I host is a bit early!
:)
Welcome!!!

I will be away and rather than skip it...
or try to manage technology while I'm away...
I thought...
"Why not get the party going????"

It'll just be a LONGER party.
Linky will close next Wednesday.

+++++++++++++

I spied the quilt above this week while visiting an elderly friend.
It was UNDER another chair covering adding padding to the chair.

I could just barely see it peeking out and knew I wanted to see MORE!
This is all I could manage.
The way it was all tucked in "just right" made it
impossibly INPOLITE to get a better LOOK!
:)

She told me it was made by an aunt
and it is hand quilted.

I'll be away for a few days
so I am packing up some supplies.

Handwork.
The most IMPORTANT thing to pack.

and....


I couldn't resist purchasing this yarn today for .99 cents.
It is marked $25.00

I try VERY hard not to buy yarn...
but....
when I see THAT...
I buy.
I did some  harvesting this week.
The butternut squash seems to LIKE my husband's garden.
:)
I don't mind THAT at all.

Link up and share about 
what YOU are making this week.

  1. I understand your feelings about taking projects on vacation. Several years ago we went on one and when we got the car parked at the airport I discovered that HE left my project (hand work/books) standing in the front hall. I stood in the parking lot and cried. Have a great trip.

  3. I always bring one or two or even three projects with me when we travel - there is always time for some hand work - I agree with your comment above - if I have forgotten my bag or don't have enough I head to a craft store/quilting

  5. That quilt looks like it was made with leftover fabric or cut up clothes. I wonder how old it is and if it is all hand pieced too? Enjoy your travels.

  6. That is a very pretty quilt you spied. I wonder if it is hand-pieced too. I like the colour and the pattern you are using for your knitting. At that price, you made out like a bandit. Your husband still has butternut squash growing in the garden?! I am so jealous :) Have a great time!

  8. The quilt you discovered is so typical of the quilts my grandma used to make. It had scraps and a solid and was hand quilted. It reminded me of Grandma.

  9. That vintage quilt is fabulous! I love seeing an original quilt block like that, complete with set-in seams whereas today that block would probably be simplified with additional seams. Thanks for sharing it with us and have a wonderful vacation!
