Do you watch Project Runway? I tape all the shows just so I don’t miss one. If you were cheering for Michelle when she won Project Runway, you are not alone, and guess what? She lives in Portland, right where quilt market is going to be (ok, maybe not right where quilt market is, but I’m sure she’s close by). I would love, love, love to meet her! She should be an inspiration to all of us because she picked herself up when she was down and came out on top.
Also very near Portland is a fabulous quilt shop called Holly Hill. It’s a must see stop if you’re going to Portland. If anyone is still looking for my “Raining Cats & Dogs” quilt kit, Holly Hill has it. Say I sent you, and get 10% off! If you go, give Brian and big hug for me!
If you remember a few posts back, I showed you a photo of my pink depression glass vase filled with garden roses. So many of you emailed to ask where I got the vase. Well I’ve been searching for it on the internet and can’t find anything similar. I purchased it years ago from Gooseberry Patch, but time has moved on and they no longer sell all the products they used to have. I loved to shop Gooseberry Patch and I was disappointed to find just cookbooks and recipes available. I’ve gotten some great buys from them, and if I lined everything up and took photos you’d all say “I want that too!”.
Well, I wasn’t going to give up, so I’ve been searching eBay and found 2 vases. They are on their way to Bunny Hill! When they arrive I’m going to do a vase giveaway. (No not in this post, but maybe by the end of the week so check back). Who knows, maybe you can win one!
I’m going to be super careful with my own pink vase since I know how hard they are to find. I fill mine with my garden roses to enjoy in the studio. It’s the perfect vase a “frog” style top.
Stop to smell the roses today, wherever you are.
