Eau De Parfum!

Here is the finished product . . . the perfume bottle quilt I made for my cousin. It has 120 perfume bottles, each different, set in an attic window setting. This was taken at Guild the night before I flew to Atlanta, to give it to Diane. It looks great in her bedroom which is a lovely coral color. She has gold pillow shams and is going to put up new white sheers at the windows, and a gold dust ruffle on the bed. I made one additional block for the back, reversing the colors and used it as a label.

More later!

Time has flown!

I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post. I'll try to make up for that fairly quickly.

First, I've been having trouble with my computer at home, and yesterday, I had an opportunity to get it picked up and worked on, so that is in the works.

Second . . . found the camera! I had just about torn the house down looking for it. I remembered picking it up when I left Miss Mary's at the end of our Retreat. I put it and several other things in the car, and went into Quilter's Harvest to check out. After making yet another search at home, I got in the car, stuck my hand into the little wastebasket, and there it was.

Next post will show the Perfume Bottle quilt I made for my cousin, and a few pictures from my visit to her in Atlanta.

Hey . . . and the stock market went up a bit yesterday! Life is good!
