Mine! Or as Doe told me (ala the seagulls from Nemo)… mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine…
Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine....

Thank you all for your support - and helping to keep the American economy rolling. We’re all doing our part, eh. I called Flowers N Fluff and paid via phone, and sweet, sweet Robin from Robin’s Parcel Express picked it up for me and brought it too me at our Redwork Club at Karen’s house. Robin holding on tight as I snap her pic, and no time to fiddle with the camera… that’s a heavy table she’s holding!
Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine....

Show and Tell at Redwork… Karen shows a goodie she found in Sweden recently. I think it says “stockings”.
Socks in Swedish?

Another Swedish gem. It says something in Swedish. We don’t know what. But it gave me the idea to embroider something that says, “Etwas auf Deutsch”, and I’ll be asked, “what does it say?“, and I’ll say… “something in German”. “No… what does it SAY?!“… again… “SOMETHING IN GERMAN”. Round and round I’ll go. Kinda scary how easily I’m able to entertain myself.
Something in Swedish

We all went gaga over the vintage Lady of the Lake quilt top one of the ladies brought.

The colors of the prints were amazing and in such great shape.

A very fun day, all in red. But sadly… there was a lot of blue too. Very, very, very blue.

Edited in: I do not know why the Anna Lena links are not working at the moment, but I’m sure they’ll be working again soon.

    You did get the table! Cool!

    The Lady of the Lake quilt is gorgeous.

  2. The fabulous Anina allegedly said:

    Yay! I know you’d somehow end up with the red stuff!

  3. The fabulous Natalie allegedly said:

    Ah. What a happy ending. Congratulations.

  4. The fabulous donna allegedly said:

    I’m so glad you got YOUR red table. It had your name written all over it even before you called to pay for it!! Waiting anxiously for a picture of it all set up at home!!

  5. The fabulous elizabeth allegedly said:

    Yippee! What fun that table will be! I personally LOVE your german stitchery idea. I’d totally fall for that, and likely more than once.

  6. The fabulous wenchequilts allegedly said:

    oh, lovely redwork! “strumpor” means stockings, and “glad såsom fågeln i morgonstunden” is “Happy as the bird in the morning”. (I’m norwegian) Something in norwegian would be “Noe på norsk”!

  7. The fabulous jen duncan allegedly said:

    yay for you! If it was still there then it was meant to be. :-)
    Lovely redwork there, ladies. Thanks for the peeks!

  8. The fabulous Pam allegedly said:

    Ahhh something in German.
    You kill me.
    Love the table, the all fun photos. And yes, sad sad news.

  9. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    You’re Hysterical! It would be so worth it to embroider that on a pillow just so people would ask. That would make a great Christmas gift for my German BIL — then when he opens it and everyone asks what it says, he could look like a total smart aleck!

    And CONGRATS on the outstanding redwork job!

  10. The fabulous Wendy allegedly said:

    You better keep a close eye on that red table, I love anything red….teehee. The red quilt is gorgeous.
    I’m sorry to hear about Anna Lena’s, I’ve ordered from that store and got a wonderful bundle of 30’s fabrics.

  11. The fabulous Heidi Kaisand allegedly said:

    I love red work and red-and-white quilts!! I wish I could have been there.

  12. The fabulous Kris allegedly said:

    Oh, I’m sooooo jealous!! I wish I had a red table and got to hang out with you guys! Guess I’ll just go to the Long Beach Festival instead. LOL!!

  13. The fabulous Ellen Crimi-Trent allegedly said:

    oh there you go with your goodies!! I cannot buy anything these days, must buckle down with these gas prices going up and all!!

    Well I can live through you!

    okay I must go to bed I have had 2 glasses of wine packed for Saratoga Springs and happy not to design any more Halloween in July for the moment!!

  14. The fabulous Chelsea Ann allegedly said:

    Jolly Fun Blog!

  15. The fabulous brigette allegedly said:

    okay, i’m so happy you got that table. when you showed it the first time i actually called them to get it! then i decided shipping would be astronomical. i’m so glad you got it since you loved it so much. so you’ll have to take pics. of it all the time for me!!

  16. The fabulous cindy allegedly said:

    Ooo, I can hardly wait to come out and have tea with you on your little red table!! :) I’m so glad you got it.

    I might have to make a little “something in Japanese” now. You’re going to have us all making a “something in…” wallhanging. You little cult leader, you! :) We have to think of a name for our group. We should all wear solid colored prairie dresses.

    I got the news about Anna Lena’s. Sad for the coast people. I hope Karen enjoys “retirement”.

  17. The fabulous June allegedly said:

    What a fabulous table to go with your redwork group efforts. While I adore redwork and have a project in the works myself, I admit that blue is my favorite color. Not just any blue, mind you, it has to be a soft worn chambray kind of blue, like sea glass. Anyway, the redwork articles you show in your pictures are beautiful.

  18. The fabulous Jenn : ) allegedly said:

    Oh, looks like you’ve had some fun! : )

  19. The fabulous Nanette allegedly said:

    So you finally got that red table! Can’t wait to see its new home.

  20. The fabulous Anyone Can Quilt allegedly said:

    Loooove the red table, what a great find! The swedish linens and old red and white quilt are also so charming. x

  21. The fabulous Mary Anne allegedly said:

    OK …. so there was just no living with you until you got that red table !!!!(did you utilize the whining method, the crying method, the pouting method, the starvation diet method, or the silent treatment method …. all perfected by Lucy when she wanted Ricky to buy her either new living room furniture, or a Jaque Marcel designer dress in Paris…. I know…. I need to get a life!) Anyhow, enjoy that cute table!!! and … all of those redwork projects are great!

  22. The fabulous Cheryl allegedly said:

    Love, love that red and white quilt. And the table - WOWIE, ZOWIE. You are so lucky, you lucky girl!!

  23. The fabulous Nanna J allegedly said:

    Woo Hoo! The table is YOURS - it always was, wasn’t it? Had your name written all over it - can’t wait to see it in it’s new home.
    Love the redwork! It is sad news about Karen, but hopefully someone will purchase the shop! How ’bout you and me, girlfriend?
    Love the “something in German” - too funny!

  24. The fabulous mo allegedly said:

    No!!!! Not Anna Lenas!! I can’t believe they are closing! Now I have no reason to go to Long Beach. I am glad you got your table though.

  25. The fabulous Mary allegedly said:

    I’m going to have to steal that “something in German” for a gift for my cousin or Tante. What a riot!

  26. The fabulous Moog allegedly said:

    I, too, am so glad you got the table and chairs that were meant to be yours! I’ll bet the aqualicious boots aren’t too far away from them.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
