Sunday Morning

"Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan."
FDR
May we never forget....God Bless Our Troops!

Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!
-Unknown
After work yesterday, my daughter (who had borrowed my car), came to pick me up and off we went to our favorite thrift shop. The crocheted heart will look lovely adorning a bag or a quilt or a needle book for a friend or...... I think I will start a basket of small treasure like this one and the ribbon on the box of chocolates Bruce gave me and the buttons my sister gave me a few weeks ago and..... If they are all in the same place, do you think they will inspire me? What do you do for inspiration?
I believe this beautiful hand blown glass bowl will be doing duty holding cranberry sauce or maybe ambrosia very shortly. It is not overly large, but just about the right size for a small fruit salad.
As promised, a quilt from a while ago. I went to a quilt show years ago in Brookings, South Dakota. There was a basket quilt that caught my eye. I stood and looked at it long enough I was able to come home and make the block. The block stayed on my design wall for what seemed like an eternity until I was between projects and looking for something fast and easy.
What I really think I needed was something in the hoop. I piece to have something to hand quilt. Happy Sunday!
