You forgot to mention must not be a "No Reply" either! Great finds. I got more VS when I was there on Sat (like I need more). May not be at quilting tonight. Laxy is in renal failure so dealing with SQ fluids and stuff. Back to the vet after my hair cut so I might not make it.

Love your thrift store treasurers. And the quilt panel is beautiful. Is that a Bird Brain Design? It looks like the one that I have.

Have a wonderful day.

Hugs

My heart goes out to Mama Spark - She & Laxy are in my prayers.

I love the embroidered blocks. One of these days I am going to have to do more than cross stitch. I love the quilt rack. $5.00. What a bargain.

LOVE the bird blocks. I'm new to your blog, and I'm sure you've probably told people before, but where did you get your pattern for the embroidery?
