Hey, all. Welcome to VTT, sponsored by my friend Suzanne. Suzanne is showing off a fantastic laundry room makeover and you really gotta see it.
Suzanne recently had to replace her iron. As quilters, we know the importance of a great iron. I thought I'd show this one off to make her feel better. Imagine if this is what you had to use, sweetie!
This iron came from my Aunt Lucille's house and my Mom painted it this fantastic green. It was in her house as long as I can remember to prop doors open, even though no door ever dared swing shut on it's on in a house my Dad lived in. But, it was part of the Early American Revolution of the 70's. Somehow, I don't think today's quilting cottons would stand up too well to this.
This next pic is one I've long wanted to share with my friend Angela. Angela's son recently made his own pinewood derby car and raced it. Erin, you should have a derby coming up sometime soon, too.
Okay, so the car was carved by my Dad and he added strips of white out tape for the white stripes. The picture is me and my Dad. Look at the size of that trophy compared to the size of my head! The newpaper article was, as far as I know, the first time my name was ever in the paper. Thank goodness, it was the last time, too...at least I think it was.
Okay, so that's it for me today. But, I'm going to take pics of some of my vintage quilts this weekend while we're cleaning. I think they could use a good airing. I also want to look into those museum boxes and tissue paper to protect them.
See you guys around. Lane
