Joyce ((in the pink)) was on a waiting list for my Sister’s Choice class up in Prescott. And she was only given a day’s notice that space had opened up and she jumped right on it! She loaded up her mini-cooper with everything she would need and made her way to spend the night with her friend who already lives in Prescott -----so excited!
And then it hit her – if she had driven her bigger vehicle – SHE could have brought me back down to the valley ---Joyce, as it turns out, lives only about a mile and a half from my dad! Small world!
She’s told me that any time I come to visit I can have access to her featherweight, and if my feet feel the need --- I can come treadle on her treadle machine too!
Thanks to quilters far and wide ---I just never go WITHOUT!
I also love it when people bring show and tell ---it’s a fun thing to do as we are winding up lunch, getting our minds geared up for another 3 hours of sewing. Do you see all the cute cute cute 4” scrappy stars in Joyce’s quilt? CUTE!
She brought these to show me what she did after retiring….each star is as scrappy as it can be---half with dark backgrounds and light star points, half in the reverse with light backgrounds and dark star points. This was her effort after retiring to take the time to do a quilt with many many many little pieces.
I love the quirky combinations of florals mixed with novelties and old calicos mixed with modern brights and everything all in there to play away! It just sparkles!
Okay I’ll do it for you! 200 4” stars!
Way to go, Joyce! And I certainly will take you up on your offer the next time I’m around the corner ;c)
