while shopping at my favorite antique mall in the area (stoudts, who also happen to make WONERFUL beer), i saw some beautiful quilts.

and luckily the red light right down the streen cooperated so i could idle just long enough to take this pic.

baby love quilt

i recently made a baby quilt for some LOVE-ly friends of ours, who are expecting a baby in july. i forgot to take pics of it, so snapped a couple in my car about 5 min before the baby shower :-)

last year dave and i went to a first friday and saw an artist (gregory prestegord ) that we both REALLY liked. we had been wanting to buy something, but never got around to it. i went to first friday in april and stopped at F.A.N. art gallery. as luck would have it, he was having another show, so we bought one of his amazing paintings. his paintings really capture philly, with all it's imperfections and grit and grime.

stargazer #2

i started making another stargazer quilt for a customer from the clover market. can i tell you how incredibly hard it was to find gray quilting cotton? i'll bet it took me longer to find the fabric than it'll take to make the quilt :-) i finally found it at my fave store spool.

the front is finished and the back is almost finished.

next up will be the quilting and binding.

i love the clover

we had another gorgeous day at the clover. as i was getting everything ready, i noticed that a LOT of the stuff i bought over the past few weeks has been green.

i was contemplating keeing the fire king milk glass mugs, and sort of regret selling them. i always have sellers regret! i was going to keep them if they didn't sell, but they did. oh well!

since the weather was AMAZING, i finally had a chance to wear my new summer dress from target. have i mentioned my love for target? it runs deep.

the next clover market is june 5 and if you're in the area you should go! there is so much great stuff, you'd be a fool to miss it. i won't be there, however, i'll be celebrating 7 years of marriage on that day. guess that makes me a fool....
