I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

                                            I like these cute little S&P shakers...
                           Mom got them at a flea market, years ago....
                           I think of our fun outings whenever I use them.

                              I FINALLY finished my old 
                                Cathedral Window piece....all by hand....
I use it here....
                Under my sea glass and shells collection on an old pink
                     depression ware cake stand that 
                         comes down to me from my Grand-mere💖💜

               This picture of the two of us with our darling Granddaughter 
                  just after her High School Graduation ceremony...
                    (don't you love the sneaker pile on the right??);)))

                OMYGOSH--we ALL loved this for sure--
                                  inside was a lovely marble cake.....


And finally.....
          I love my own little view outside my sewing room window..
                  I can see the mailman coming 
                            (with my fabrics, of course ;}}}} )

Thank you LeeAnna for hosting us all once again...

Drop in to see all the wonderful, positive
likes for this week at Not Afraid of Color....

  1. Good Morning Julierose! What a pretty name, by the way. Congrats to Cassidy - what a nice picture of the three of you. I'm sure you're wondering where the heck the time went?!! Your cathedral window piece is just gorgeous. Oh, the depth those fabric choices give the piece and it looks fab hosting the depression glass. I have a few pieces that I should get out and use instead of keeping them in a cupboard. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Congratulations to your Granddaughter. She is cute! You two are cute, too. Love your Cathedral Window piece, and your sea glass collection.

  3. LOVELY post and how good to see you two with your granddaughter. I like your window view, too. (and congrats on that cathedral window piece - I gave up on mine about half-way along).

  6. Your Cathedral Windows piece is wonderful, Julierose! Perfect for under that bowl of sea glass and shells. You said you made it all by hand, and now I'm curious about how to make those blocks. That's something I've never tried, but I am enjoying hand-piecing a lot these days. Lovely picture of you with your granddaughter!

  7. I love the cathedral window quilt. Those colors are wonderful. Huzzah for a graduation! :-)
