More Stars and New Fabrics

Time warp stars for sprigged, Indiennes, and Provincial.  The blue star is "double-sprigged"!

New Fabric Arrival!  Le Marais from French General......border stripes in 4 colorways.

Large Jacobean-type florals.

Smaller Jacobean-type florals.

Lights for backgrounds.

And TOILES!  Love Toiles.....got all 5 colorways.

I've been sewing 1-1/2" squares together to surround this basket from the Eagle Medallion fabric line.  Sometimes I like to just sit and sew to relax, not working on some specific project......just sewing......and listening to an audiobook......currently the story of Eddie Rickenbacher, WWI flier.

Love quiet evenings at home when I can sit and stitch!  Recently finished block #9 of Edyta Sitar's "Elegant Garden"........only 15 more to go!!  Only????  Don't know when I started these but the patterns are dated 2007!!!!

Here is a "Sneak Peek" at Club #15 that Jo sent!

And, Jo will have a book published early in 2016 of patterns of her quilts that have been available only in her Little Women Club!!

Here are some photos of the Fitzroy Inn where we stayed in Charlottetown PEI Canada in September.   Be careful, this wallpaper might shock you!  I  love wallpaper, especially antique designs.  This room had Many Angles and whoever papered the walls did an excellent job!

The little alcove behind my granddaughter, Jeni, is the window that can be seen on the third floor of the photo showing the front of the house, built in 1872.  Jeni made all the plans and she knew exactly what I would like and thankfully, she likes many of the same things I do!!  I recommend this Bed and Breakfast highly!!

Our room was the left window on the roof......I think it was 55 steps UP to the third floor!  Got my exercise for the day!

Looking down the stairs from the bedroom doorway.

Another view of the hall outside our door.  There were 3 rooms on the third floor.....one of them was the best suite!  

Lovely antiques filled each and every room.

This was a sitting/reading area at the end of the hall on the second floor, opposite the stairs seen above.

The view as you enter the front door.

One of the double parlors.

The other parlor!

 The dining room all set for breakfast, which was Wonderful.  Food choices were excellent and the hostesses very friendly!

Front door.

And I will end with something "quilty"....the floor in the red parlor had a Courthouse Steps design!  Next time I'll have photos of Green Gables.
