Find of the day...
This beautiful bread and butter plate of the Franciscan Family China "Indian Summer" pattern, produced between 1958 and 1969. I got 8 of them, all in pristine condition! There were some saucers, too, but I didn't see the matching cups. Will have to go back and grab them tomorrow now that I've done my homework and know what I have!
I also started (and finished) my first "Wee" person. She seems a bit of a diva, rather strange as most of my stuffies come out looking much more plebian.
I call her "Miss Wee", as she seems to warrant a bit of official respect. Just look at those pursed lips, as if to say, "How can you possibly work in such messy quarters?" Sigh. Even my stuffies are critical of my creativity!
However, I am very pleased at the results of my first foray into Denyse Schmidt quilting, the "I Can See Clearly Now" eyeglass case.
So my confidence level in quilting has gone up a notch. Unfortunately, my confidence in my crocheting skills has taken a nose-dive. I can whip up a chain like you wouldn't believe. But, as my husband says, it's turning the corner that gets me every time. Frustration! As I've said before, I crochet about as well as I drive a stick-shift, which is to say, I can in an emergency, but otherwise, I prefer to stick with automatic! Now, if I could just discover the automatic version of crocheting!
