I've the BLUES !


....Yes, I am feeling better,
and I want to thank you all for your comments
...& emails of get-well-wishes ~

and since I'm on-the-mend, I have been rummaging through my bins & BINS of fabric.

{{Note to Self: NEVER shop at another quilt shop again. ever. really.}}


I wanted to pull out some blue calico ~ for some reason, the blue calico's

remind me of our more humble past...it was a color staple in our wardrobe,

since the indigo plant was grown in almost every household garden...


don't get me wrong, I love my browns, creams & turkey reds...
but
the blues always beckon me back in time.



in my last post I mentioned that I am working on smalls for the upcoming show at Donna's ~
Cabin Goods Gathering

and thought my finished needlework offerings
would be best-suited by using some of my blues fabrics...


rumply, crumply, wrinkled & folded ~
I don't mind the condition...
tattered & torn,
LOVED & WORN....
the more the better!

some of my calicos are repro's ~ offered in the late 1980's...
and some are the real deal...from the late 1880's.
I love them all the same :)

I'll try to snap some pics of some of the goods I'll be bringing to the show...
and perhaps post them tomorrow.

wishing you all a peaceful Sunday evening ~

blessings from the farm,
Lori
