LITTLE QUILT WEEKEND RETREAT
This weekend was our "Little Quilt Weekend Retreat" for the ebay group, AAPG (An American Primitive Gathering). I am not a quilter...tried it...didn't like it..but my good friend Lori, from Homespun Prims by Lori, makes the most amazing quilts among other handmades, including the wonderful pincushion also seen in the picture. So....I took my little quilts, made by her, and framed them. I think they are deserving to be treated as works of art...which they are! Pictures do not do them justice, but at least by framing them, they are front and center and they really dress up my living room wall. They were easy to frame, but I want to change the background from the stark white, acid free paper, to a soft tan. Lori's blog and picturetrail are listed on the sidebar to see even more of her amazing hand-mades & her beautiful home.
The game board was purchased from a wonderful folk artist from Maine who happened to be one of the vendors at the Malabar Farm show last September. And of course..as you can see...I don't have one particular style of decor that I cater too...I have a mix of everything. Notice the ironstone pitcher with the flowers?? That pitcher has traveled to more places and tabletops in my home than a container of Orange Glo!
Anyway...I hope everyone is have a nice Sunday...it's still a bit chilly here in Michigan..but at least we don't have snow!
