This is where I log craft projects, ideas, products, materials and sources including links. I'll also document sources of inspiration. I love crafts, including knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, stained glass crafting and others. My specialties were knitted baby caps and glycerin soaps I call "Gemsoaps." Now, I'm into embroidery and beading.

Old-Fashioned Bed Turning

My good friend, Laura Sheaffer, joined me for the Wilkes County Quilters annual show this weekend. There were many gorgeous quilts on display (I'm still not sure how I feel about photographing other people's quilts--I am sure the winners will be posted on their website.) This year's highlight was an old-fashioned bed turning. The ringing of a handbell summoned viewers to the turning. An old iron bed was covered with a stack of vintage quilts. Each quilt was held up for all to see as each quilt's story was read. Each quilt was also "turned" back upon the foot of the bed until all quilts had been shown.
