Well it has been interesting trying to figure out how to post with the new changes with the blog host. As I have been trying to maneuver around the new publishing style I smiled and realized something. The change most likely will make posting easier, yet I miss the old format. I was comfortable with it and whether it was easier or not, it is what I wish for as I am posting. Isn't that how life is? We get comfortable with something and are reluctant to change, even if the change may be for the better.
My daughter has been faithfully eating olives~so I can begin another project. Do you have any guesses as to what I am going to make?
To all those asking for a more complete view of the makeover in the kitchen...I will be sharing soon. Our construction crew~although super adorable~have never rebuilt a kitchen-but are ready to take on the challenge! Oh and the above photo~makes me smile, as my cardboard cupboards(well they are super thin wood~cheapola) are almost all removed. And heck, I won't miss them, because I had to use a stool to reach everything that was housed in these cupboards!
Made in Edgar, Nebraska
85" x 71"
Nebraska State Historical Society, Source: Donald & Doris Cushing, Lincoln Ethel Cushing made this quilt featuring ribbons she and her husband Loren won at the Adams, Nuckolls, Clay, and Garfield county fairs and the Nebraska State Fair from 1924 to 1931. Prizes were for needlework, canning, poultry, and livestock. (source)
This photo is a photo I found on the Nebraska History site. I was reading about something that took me to the Nebraska site, and I spent some time reading about the quilts made by the citizens of Nebraska. This quilt was made in 1930 using fair ribbons!! Pretty exciting~don't you think? This quilt inspires me to perhaps do something different with the way I display ribbons currently.
