To what do you aspire?  Sounds like a pretty simple question.  And it reminds me of when I was a child.  What do you want to be when you grow up?  My answer was always that I wanted to be an artist.  But I never had any serious plan to become anything.  Or to even […]

In June, I posted about the restoration performed on this King sized quilt.  This weekend I had the pleasure of restoring another of my cousin Jennifer’s quilts, a baby quilt made by our Gramma.  The same staggered brick, Diamond pattern was present.  Tied with yarn, the backing was thin and torn. I stretched out the […]
