I am leaving behind a few little touches that make this lovely cabin feel more like home to me….
When we bought the place furnished, we inherited quite a few antique pieces ---A bit of color to this Duncan Phyfe style sofa makes all the difference in the world of beige 1930’s style floral upholstery. The floral fabric on the border of this simple quilt is of the same era. Good fit!
A faded bear’s paw, a gift from a reader –is now living over the bannister to the upstairs bedrooms.
Pardon the motion of the ceiling fan!
This sweet pieced hour glass quilt is also living on the other railing – what you can’t see is where Sadie chewed holes along the edge on the “behind the rail” side –reminders of when we adopted her and almost sent her packing – she chewed through so many quilts, both my own, and my antiques! We still love her, and now those chew marks still make me smile ---
I have filled the gifted ladder with scrappy quilts of color, adding a softness to the bare pine walls on the right side of the stone fireplace. These quilts are not perfect either, most have stains, holes, edge wear, and fabric deterioration – but they are perfect folders. I love seeing them here!
We hope to be back over labor day – my sewing projects will stay here as there will be no machine time to really work on them until labor day rolls around. I’ll let them beckon to me, and can’t wait to be here with them again --
The only thing missing will be Mickey!
Another shout out if you missed this morning’s post – There WILL be Quilt Cam to night at 9pm Eastern! Bring a project – I’m on a roll and don’t want to stop sewing yet!
