Done it this time!


       Well I have really done it this time!  I used to be an avid blogger.  Seems like more and more of my blogging friends aren't doing much with their blogs anymore, including me.  I am thinking that social media is the culprit.  Maybe even pinterest!  But let me tell you why I have done it this time.  My college age son had a laptop that wasn't that old that quit on him, so I being the nice mom gave him my laptop to use.  I had bought some tablets around Christmas time for my husband and myself, so I felt it would be alright if I gave him the laptop, plus we have our regular computer.        
         So anyway after giving him my trusty little laptop, with all my pictures on it, he took it off my hands, and then I got the bright idea that I needed to upgrade my smart phone.  I had an iphone 4S and liked it but the screen seemed so small compared to all the newer ipones and samsung galaxys etc, that i was jealous.     Well I sold the tablets, sold my digital camera, and my iphone all so that I could get a new phone for nothing.  Now I am left with a slow computer, and a smart phone that has a good camera, but I don't know how to get the pictures I take onto my old computer, and I can't access this blog on it due to some weird things that happened when I changed some passwords.   I have had a month long ordeal, with getting to know how to use a galaxy verses the iphone.  Well hopefully I will be able to rectify these little problems of mine.  Hopefully you will see more pictures in the future and also more blog posts.  I still love blogging, but just have gotten away from it, but would like to start blogging again.  Plus, sometimes I am just plain old technologically handicapped.
All because I wanted this:

New quilt and a baby blessing dress.




I got the hidden cottage vintage Christmas craft boutique hosted at my home, then it was onto the quilt I needed to get done for granddaughter Mayley's first birthday. Then there was a blessing dress for our newest grandchild to sew.   I was thrilled to get to do this again. These sweet babies are so wonderful.  I think that is the 10th one I have made for a granddaughter.  (we now have 15 little girls to spoil, and very soon 8 grandsons)
 These pictures were taken with my iphone so they are kind of blurry.  I have not blogged in so long, I am wanting to get back into it.  I am not even sure that very many people are still blogging

Random Vintage Stuff!

It's all about my love for all things vintage.  
A Vintage sign made by me from an old board found out in the desert!
 Remembering all the embroidered doilies. This one probably made for the back of a stuffed chair.  Remember when cedar chest were full of this stuff?
A very vintage icon here.  I could not believe I was standing next to it.  The Oscar Mayer Wiener mobile!  WOW!
A very old copy of  the book Peter Pan
An old vintage cross-stitched doily
a wonderful canape set just right for making hor'duerves in the sixties
This comes from the 1970's Pfalsgraff  pattern called yorktown.  This is a piece left from the dishes we started out with 36 years ago.

A new finished quilt for a new grand baby

 I am really getting hooked on the quilting. I am learning more each day about piecing and machine quilting.  I have so any other projects to complete.  I have craft fairs coming up so I really need to be crafting for the booths, BUT I can't stop planning and thinking about my next quilt!   Signed. Someone who is getting a new addiction!!
