For Catherine to see

I made this quilt for my husband ,who in his working life was a hotel manager. It depicts his daily wear of white shirts and black bow ties.
I would never part with his evening shirts ,bow ties ,or braces. I put this photograph on after reading Catherine,s blog. Please visit her.

Oh my goodness! I am just thrilled to see this. What a treasure. Made with love, that is for sure. The bow-tie design is absolutely brilliant. It is very touching to see how you have honored him. He was a lucky man. I can't sew a thing. I did take some knitting classes though and did quite well, but I haven't knit in years. I wear so many hats!

Thank you for sharing this with me. I will never forget it. My husband has just left for the restaurant or I would have called for him to have a look. On second thought - He may want one for himself and then I will have to learn another skill! Ha-ha! My husband is Greek but he was born in America. He is second generation. I grew up in New Jersey and I am French, Irish, and English on my mother's side, and Slovak on my father's side. Both of my parent's were born in America.

You are so dear to take the time. Have a pleasant day.

Thank you for visiting at Sugarplum Cottage. The post for dryin' Hydrangeas is dated 6-19-08, just visit my blog again and look the date up and it will take you right to it. This is the perfect time of year to start dryin your flowers. Glycerin will give them a soft, rich golden color while letting them dry upside down or on the bush will give them a bluier color.
