    It looks to be the late 70's maybe early 80's - she wears a lot of quilted chest plates/bibs; love the eye glasses you see people wearing - it's a very telling sign.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    I love(d) watching quilting/sewing shows on Public TV -- but since we moved to the apartment our cable provider doesn't have much. And even when we had Verizon FIOS I could have gotten Eleanor Byrnes but it was on RFDTV and that wasn't available here. Now the choices are something that is on at 6am on Sunday mornings or the occasional art quilting show on CreateTV.

    Beautiful quilt NanaKathy! What a lovely gift. Dabbler, you created a darling doll quilt. I love all the embellishments, especially the letter beads! I have some but never thought of putting on quilt. That is my next new try! You did a very nice job on your prairie points especially for your first time. Love this swap. We get to see everyone's creativity AND we are inspired to stretch and grow by trying new techniques. Great job everyone! I will post mine as soon as I receive it, so don't stop reading posts for the May Swap!

    Ok, here we go....pictures of the awesome crazy quilt I received from Argentium. I just can't say enough about this beautiful quilt AND the extras she sent. The quilt itself has the true look of vintage crazy quilts and since I am so into vintage this is just beautiful. I am convinced I received the best quilt in the group....no insults to anyone else cause I am including the one I sent too! All of the extra detailing including the buttons, the beautiful hand stitching, beads, special fabrics....So beautiful! And she sent me two stilettos to dies for. One has a hollow bead, and she sent a silver and a gold tone one. These are the prettiest I have seen and fit my tastes to a tee! She sent me a handmade needle case that is darling and I have never seen a button like the one on this! she also included ribbons like the one in the quilt, and a needle threader.....that I didn't find until I was cleaning up the packaging materials so it isnt in the pics. Oh, and some fun mardi gras beads! Enjoy, I am posting lots of pictures! I just wish I could post high resolution pictures so you could enjoy its full beauty!

    Well oddly the pictures are oriented correctly when I view it on my iPad but not when on my big computer. Anyone know why?
