I recently won a fat quarter and an origami pin from Chantal! What adorable fabric for a baby quilt! And the butterfly pin was a surprise. Isn't it cute? She said she will post a tutorial on how to make them soon, so be sure to check out her blog. I love the 30's fabric she used.
The project was a doll quilt, sheets and pillow for an antique bed that someone wanted me to make for them. I felt honored to do it and sure hope she likes it. She sent me the fabric to use as she wanted it to look like something made around 1830.

At Buttermilk Basin's blog yesterday, she showed some uses for old watering cans and told how much she likes them. So I decided to show you my old watering can too. I found this watering can at a garage sale in Prineville, OR a couple years ago and now I'm using it on my front step. I found an old short step ladder that I'm using to set it on. Haven't decided yet if I'm going to paint the step ladder or not. * I'm linking up to Knick of Time for their Vintage Inspiration Party!
The good news is regarding my physical therapy on Monday. I was very encouraged because of several things:
1. She said I didn't have a bad case of carpal tunnel
2. I don't have to stop sewing
3. I will have therapy for 1 month and then evaluate
4. She gave me some exercises to do at home and ideas for continuing wellness for many years
So, I feel pretty good about this. The therapist's mother is a quilter, so she understands and feels that with proper strategies I can do well. Thanks for all the kind and encouraging words and ideas! I really didn't know much about it and now I feel a lot better and am glad that I decided not to wait until it got worse before addressing it.
