Monday, Monday : Quilt, Banner, & More

It's been since last Thursday since I've blogged. Not that long ago but it seems like it has been awhile. The weekend went by fast (as usual) and now it is Monday. I was born on a Monday. What is that saying about Monday's child? Fair of face? Well, that is true.






There are a few things I'd like to show you. First is this lovely quilt I found last summer at an estate sale. Beautiful! I"m not a quilter so I have no idea how much work went into this beauty...but I can only imagine!







And the other thing I was excited to show you....look at this pretty banner I had made for my Sister's new blog, below! It was created by Mary of Isabella's Closet. She has a special blog called Bella's Banners. Most of her banners are only 5.00! This is quite a deal.



My Sister was thrilled with the surprise banner. Drop by and say hello as she is VERY new to this whole blogging thang.....A Tuneful of Sugar.


This was a pretty "Be Mine" Valentine's Day cake my sweetie gave to me last week....



Hope you enjoyed your Monday! I'll be back to show some of my vintage finds on a quick antique stop last weekend.

Hi Jill!
tryin to visit while I can. Yes, time does go by fast and keeping up w/blogging can be a job in itself! That is becoming hard for me although the bouts w/illness have trailed on for couple weeks here and everything seems more difficult. Just had one to Dr. again, ear infection..ugh!
anyhow, love that quilt and that closer picture...wow, yes lotsa quilting. (I made a quilt once and 2 baby ones and a lap quilt..hey how did I find time?) your cake is just pretty! too sick for V-Day! but lots luv here anyway!

hugs/blessings
Carol
ps....will surely visit sister's blog!
