Some Pretties

OMG! We had an earthquake today!
Yes! Here at the beach...it was scary, the room twisted and heaved like in the Wizard of Oz....

All was immediately back to normal, I don't think people out on the beach felt a thing...

Anyway, I'll be out of touch for a day or two but here's a little pretty for a taste of coming things. Look at the fine hand quilting! [ click to zoom or see closeup above]. I love rescuing a special scrap of antique textile. This piece is far too special to simply throw away...or use as a shop rag. It had solder drips all over it, isn't that sad!

I took the photos of the rest of the newest sachets right after the quake (I hope my hands weren't shaking!) But no time tonight to edit and post so those will appear by the weekend, I hope!

Talk to you soon!
