Happy Anniversary May 24th

Have you cake and eat it too!

Well I sure don't know where 38 years went!! but Happy anniversary to us!!
Look how young and innocent we were??? What did I know at such a tender age!
I really was a child bride by todays standards.
This year he didn't just send me roses he planted me a rose garden.
I remember those funny little machines that the fabric went thru to be measured, they used to fasinate me. I always loved going to the fabric store, some things never change, I can still see that shop and what a wonderful selection of fabrics they had, I also remember going into NYC for the speciality fabrics, stores no bigger than a shoebox with just buttons from floor to ceiling and the bead and lace shops, I get to go back occasionally when I visit back home.
Back to Endless chain, I hand pieced the quilt, it was a carry along project for several years, then I decided it had to end!
Endless chain is by Barbara Brandeburg, "Fancy things cabbage rose"
Sew till later

Happy Anniversary - a rose garden . . . now that's a gift that keeps on giving *s*

I remember those machines - they seemed so very 'technical'.

Happy Anniversary! Hope your having a great day! Now I have to go home and find that book - I even have it, and I must have just always skipped over that quilt!

Happy, happy to you both on your special day. A rose garden - how marvelous! He must be a true romantic. I know what you mean -where DID the time go? We celebrate our 38th anniversary next month. Seems impossible!
