There were marching bands...
And even a quilt…..
We missed seeing our family at the parade, but we quickly received this photo in a text.
It's our grandniece Kayce in a stunning summer dress made with our Bar Harbor cheater cloth. Well done Kayce!!
I hesitated to post this. First of all I didn't want to intrude on Kayce's privacy (but she gave us the ok). Second, I didn't want the flurry of emails asking where you could purchase this fabric. Bar Harbor is several years old. It's scarce. I don't have any more. I did a little search on www.quiltshops.com and found this same fabric in black and cream. If you hurry, you can find it HERE.
I also did a search on Ebay - and if you type in "Minick and Simpson, Bar Harbor" into the search engine - there is one shop that still has it in red and cream. You have been warned. It's scarce, and the speedy online shopper gets the rewards.
I'm not sure what pattern Kayce's grandmother used - but many, many little girl dress patterns would be applicable. Ready, Set, Hit your keyboards……
As for the confusion…. Let me try to explain. POLLY is retiring from lectures, workshops and rug hooking kits. This is to lessen travel and ease into general retirement. Polly is still one half of Minick and Simpson and will continue to design fabric with me. I am not retiring. Not yet. I am lessening my teaching travels, but will continue in all capacities. Whew…
That's all the news I have right now. Everything is hunky dory - except for a certain baseball team that is trying to self destruct. I'm coping the best way I know how. I'm stitching.
