First some exciting news...I'm getting a new-to-me sewing table! I hope it will help with the sore shoulders I'be been getting when I put the quilt tops together or bind them...little table was no help there! Anyway, this also means some serious cleaning and organizing so the table will fit in my rather crowded (a nice term for "out of control!") sewing space! I have until Friday...that is when my DH and I drive down to a farm and pick it up. Lots of time but lots of work to do!
The farm has three new foals! Amazing the difference a few hours makes to the Mom...the one with the foal born that morning was not happy about having folks near her baby...the one with the two day old foal was checking out my pocket for treats with a "oh ya, want to see the kid?" sort of attitude!
So while cleaning the sewing room I found a box with some vintage embroidered blocks that I bought years ago.
Very appropriate for the spring season, no?
The print on the bottoms readss "NO203C Quilt Blocks 100% cotton Preshrunk Indianhead American Thread Co Use Star Thread 30_" Now I am curious what all that means and if it will tell me when these may have been made.
