So I'm going to start a new installment (well, try anyway). On occasional Wednesdays, I'm going to post an image of some type of old paper product, be it wrapping paper, magazine pages, book pages, etc. I don't have any idea how old most of the stuff is, so we'll say vintage/retro/beenaroundforawhile. And you can copy it for personal use.
Today's epherma - a sweet wrapping paper I found at my Grandma's house.
In other news, did you know that the muscles you use to operate a rotary cutter are between your shoulder blades, right below your neck? I brought back what was left of my Grandma's fabric stash after all my aunts went through it and have been cutting everything into 4" strips to make some simple lap-sized strip quilts. I might have 30 of them by the time I'm done. I think I'll take a break to get my friend Kimberly's baby quilt done, but after that, all other projects are on hold until I get the tops put together.
Hopefully I'll have them completed by August. That's the next massive family get-together we're having and it lasts a whole week, so I'm going to enlist some of my aunts and cousins to help tie them off. I know, I know, but seriously - do you think I'm crazy enough to hand quilt ALL OF THOSE?!?
