Hi! I'm Janet, I'm happily married,a mother of 3 daughters, and grandmother of 2 grandsons. I love crazy quilts, old and new. I've lived here in River City/Happy Valley all my life. I think it's the one of the prettiest places on earth.
I found this...thing...at Sally's recently for $2.99. It appears to be hand made, hand beaded, and has a date in beads on the underside of the tail. Does anyone want to hazard a guess as to what it was for? A pin cushion perhaps? Or just a pretty thing?
This isn't a thrift store find, it's a RR block. The "bowl" of cherries was crocheted by Cris for me.
These 4 counted cross stitch designs were all sold together. They may become centerpieces for a CQ someday.
