I'm so excited... I've begun piecing my first reproduction quilt pattern. It's the famous "bowtie" pattern...I love it. So simple but so cool! I've also picked the name ... ready? "Pop Clyde's Bowties". You see... our grandfather was the absolute best... we loved him so much... and this quilt is for him! I'm using the wonderful fabric from Windham - Worn & Loved II. I can't wait until it's finished. I'll be sure to post a picture when it's ready!

I'm also working on "NEW" redwork patterns!!! Very exciting... so much fun... !!

Oh... I decided it's time to start my "bucket list"...

1. Paris Flea Market - I want to go here so bad... AND have lots of money to spend so I can send all of my wonderful "finds" home to the store!!

2. Travel to Europe with my hubby!!! I don't care where...just so we can have fun together!!

3. Design Fabric!!

4. Attend Roundtop and Canton, Texas and shop 'till I drop!! It's a great place for primitives - which I LOVE!!

5. Become a well known pattern designer. Quilt patterns, embroidery patterns, and applique patterns !

That's it so far.... I'm sure more will come later...!!

Have a happy week! I know it will be a busy one for me!

Happy Sewing.... Gloria
