My Color Kit

Have you ever seen one of these? A friend passed it on to me a few years ago.

Basically it's an embroidery kit. It's made of a canvas like fabric. Skeins of embroidery floss are stored inside. The outside folds up like a little book.

It's kinda rough and funky, but of course that is why I like it ...

I Love Happy Hour

Here's my favorite show and tell quilt from our Kaw Valley Quilters' Guild this morning.

Ruby Shultz of Shawnee surprised us all. She held up this little quilt and declared, "After a few glasses of wine, I made this!"

How times change! Are our quilting ancestors who labored over their temperance quilts rolling over in their graves?

Thanks to Ruby for sharing her quilt and her wisdom! She gave this quilt to a friend but confided that she made another to keep.
