Have I got an "old into new" theme this week?
I went shopping for some new shoes this week. A couple of years ago I was gifted with some really comfortable shoes, and they now have seen much better days. So I got some new ones in the same brand. Continuing the theme, although it is a stretch, I took another look at my old shoes and decided with a good polish maybe they could make it a bit longer. Maybe not new looking, but an extended life none-the-less. No pics available, but they turned out fine and will still be serviceable as knockin' around shoes. (Yes David, I can picture you rolling your eyes over that term, but there are those of us who understand what it means.) :)
And last, I entered a quilt into the Scraps to Treasures challenge over on the HGTV forum. Everyone was given the same sets of 6" squares, and we were allowed to add a certain number of squares and fat quarters from our stash (hence the "old"), with the challenge to create a quilt. I'm very pleased with mine. Though it didn't place in the categories of Use of Color, Best Design, or Viewer's Favorite, it did get the write-in award! Take a look at "Who's There?".
Have a good week everyone.
