Dots and Family

No sewing while company has been in the house. My sister is recovering well from her heart operation. She will be going home tomorrow to rest up and build her strength. It's been 3 long weeks of worry for the whole family and we are all relieved she is doing so well considering her open heart surgery was last Wed. The hospital puts them on a excellent schedule to get them up and circulation going again. She'll do great if she follows doctors orders.

I bought this bowl at this antique shop, I was so thrilled to find a red polka dot bowl and it matches my red and white little quilt. When the house is quiet again (hopefully tomorrow) I'll be sewing a few little quilts....wish me luck.

Happy Quilting.

Your polka dot bowl looks so cute sitting on your little quilt. I love vintage kitchenware! Hope your sis has a speedy recovery and that you get to sew your heart out now.

I would love to have a collection of red & white kitchen items. Not going to happen at this point in life but would have been nice. My mother's kitchen was done in red and gray.

When I had my basement "forties room" I had a nice collection of red dot dishes but no more, I sold them in a booth at an antique mall. I surely did enjoy having them tho.
