"Life's Pleasures."

Hello,

A while back  (OK a long while back if you check the link.) I picked up a patchwork pattern with some hand stencilled patches included in the packet for a dollar at a garage sale. So last week I got to and made a start on it. It is supposed to be a wall hanging. I have changed it slightly on the border and will be using it as a table topper.


I have decided to hand quilt it and hopefully it will be finished this week. The pattern is called "Life's Pleasures." It is a Kitty Korner Design. I have just searched this company on the net and couldn't find anything about it so I guess it has gone out of business. I am not sure how old the pattern is.


I finished three more hand towels each with some machine embroidery to match the material on the handles.

I hope everyone has a super week.

Happy Monday
Bev C
