I am fascinated by old abandoned houses.
I like to imagine I can hear the voices of those who lived here long ago, the laughter of children playing hide and seek in the yard --echoing through the branches of the trees gently waving in the breeze.
I’m not even exactly SURE which town I was in at this point…I believe I was in Glen Alpine, NC. I had followed a sign off of the interstate to an antique mall that didn’t pan out, and when my GPS sent me on its round about way back to the interstate westward toward Tennessee and finally on to Kentucky –I saw this.
We've often joked about the “Old Quilters Home” Where we would admit old quilters as residents based on the abundance of their stash ---
Just think about it! We could stay up and sew all night ---Sleep in as late as we want ---and Quilt until we Wilt! What a great time I've had plotting and planning just what the perfect “Old Quilters Home” would be.
This one needs a bit of TLC ---but think of the possibilities!
A coat of yellow paint and it won’t look so spooky!
I took a walk up to the front door….there was a for sale sign, so I played the interested perhaps-buyer.
I wish I knew the story of this place!
What if we turned it into a Quilter’s Retreat?!
I can dream!
“Pieceful Acres –Where Old Quilters Never Die – They Just Go to Pieces!!”
Bye bye house ---
Bye bye whoever lived here and loved here and made memories here ---
If you could have the perfect “Old Quilters Home” what would it include?
Leave me a comment below! And when it comes to that time – I’ll share my stash if you will share yours!
I arrived in London Kentucky and am setting up in the hotel room to sew this evening. I’m here for 3 nights. I’m free tomorrow until 2pm when we will go grab lunch and then set up for my lecture that starts at 6pm.
Thursday there are 50 quilters in my Love Shack class, and I know it is going to be a ton of fun. I hope to meet several of you there!
Quilt On, Everyone!
