Quilt Squares And An Old Lamp

Isn't she lovely?

You may change your mind when you see the rest of her. I found her at a flea market last Sunday and I had to take her home.

There is no middle of the road here. You either think she is great or you are wondering about my taste level right now.  I understand either way!

I don't know what she wore when she was new but I would love to know. I figured it would be easy enough to find a lampshade for the top and create a skirt out of something for the bottom. The knob to turn it on is missing. I tried the knobs from every lamp in my house but none fit. I put two bulbs in and used pliers to turn it on and only the bottom bulb turned on. I guess I have to re-wire her. I think I'll wear a disguise to take her to Home Depot to see if I can buy a double whatchamacallit. I'm too sensitive and I'll be embarrassed if people laugh.

You may be laughing but I can't hear you.

I finished my April and May quilt blocks for the Craftsy Block of the Month class. I just finished the last one today so I have a couple hours to enjoy being caught up before the June video is up tomorrow.

                                                   The April blocks used hexagons.

The May blocks were called Wonky Log Cabins

I'm enjoying learning how to make these different blocks.

I hope you are having a great week!!


  1. Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder LOL - I would also like to know what she looked like originally. J
