i called in to see my friend pat on the way home from working with another lovely friend ,debbie who owns the shop where i work called calico and ivy [check it out on the web at www.calicoandivy.com ] i needed some advice on the sizing of my liberty squares quilt and of course pat guided me to what i should do.
i didn't stay long and when saying goodbye she turned around and picked me these beautiful miniature clusters of bright pink roses called china doll..
the scent in the car home was so nice .
i put them in a favorite thrift vase that i paid 50 cents for and placed them near my antique postage stamp quilt..
the quilt is from america around the 1930's and is called around the world and every stitch is sewn by hand and it is also quilted by hand ..
i love this quilt , i love this vase ,i love the roses and i love having dear pat as my good friend ...
