Tuesday April 28th

It was a busy day for me. I worked on Elizabeth's #1 quilt, while
doing some laundry in the morning. Here is the quilt top. I need to do some machine applique before I quilt it. All of these fabrics were used in her room. I made curtains, dust ruffle, sheets, dresser scarf and a diaper stacker. We bought yards and yards of fabric.

Remember the wild ferns we dug up several weeks ago. There are really thriving. Most all of the old stuff is dying off. All these fonds are new ones.

This is my new billfold I picked up in town today. It not much thicker than a half inch. It will be easy to find in my feed bag style purse.

This is what I purchased today. The fabric, not the pattern. It's dated 1979. You can guess who will be wearing this christening gown. The picture doesn't do the border eyelet justice. Just take my word, it's beautiful and dainty!

One more day to sew. We leave on Thursday for the Blacksmith Association of Missouri Conference. It will be held in sedalia Missouri again this year.

10:20 63 degrees.

Do you think it's ever going to stop raining?

Enjoy your day.

Can't wait to see your quilt finished, it is so cute.
I have the baby pattern you bought and had made my daughters dress out of it.
Keep Stitchen'

The quilt is looking great-and I know the gown will too! Neat billfold too.
