Tuesdays Treasure with Melody

I find it amazing how things get shared and then catch on in Blogland. I had been watching with interest and I have to say a certain amount of  "gee I would love one of those" the gorgeous little quilts being made for the wrought iron Table topper quilt stands. And yes I do know they are old news and I have never said I was the sharpest knife in the draw and it does take me a while to process things. So after getting the heads up from my friend Shez. I hopped over to Michelle's gorgeous blog and store Raspberry Rabbits and purchased not one but 2 different sizes.
To say my imagination has gone into overdrive is an understatement....I just adore them and the possiblities are endless. So of course I got out the pencils and started drawing and then started stitching and am working on this...
And there are several more to come. I am having so much fun. So my treasure today is my lovely new stands and their possiblities. Pop over and visit Melody our lovely hostess for more treasure.
The "mandatory red work" I must have in my basket at the moment are these little blocks.

Well that's it for me today. Short and sweet....I know a miracle! But I did want to add that I hope and pray that all our friends on the East Coast of the USA are well and out of harms way.
While listening to the radio the other day I heard a lovely quote from a lady who rang in. I am sorry I can't credit it her for it as I didn't catch her name....
"Everyone stumbles on this journey we call life. That's why it is better to hold someone's hand along the way"

Blessings Michelle xx

  6. Such a lovely quote Michelle. I think it applies to the virtual hands we hold in blogland too. It's ok to discover things in your own time, I'm sure we will see lots of lovely new designs in your stands.

  7. It's catching isn't it Michelle - I too bought a 12" stand, but havn't had the time to join in with Cheryll's mini swaps yet but I plan to in the future, and am loving the design you are working on to fit one of your stands, and of course the cute redwork goes without saying
