Goodbye and Hello

R made off with the camera cord thingy this week...he took it fishing, so no blog.
Last Sunday I set up at St Lawrence Market.

It was an OK day, no quilts sold, but several 1950s beaded cardis among other things.

When I came home I found that this spectacular 'wheel of fortune' depression era quilt had sold on etsy. It was a real show stopper one of my favorites and I will miss it.

During the week I unpicked a quilt that was in desperate shape and was delighted to find this stamp on the back of the resist dyed indigo cotton.

It says Stifel, which is German for boot. The logo was patented in 1904. I thought that was pretty neat.
Love to have a day when I learn something new.....which is nearly everyday, I just don't remember what I learn.


  1. Congrats on your Etsy sale. Those are always so nice, aren't they? I love the stamp on the fabric. What a cool find.

  2. The quilt sold on ebay looks stunning - I'm sure its making its new owner very happy.

    Know what you mean about not remembering what you learn - its so frustrating! xxx

  3. Love the wheel of fortune quilt. I'd be sorry to see it go too.
    Sometimes that not remembering can be oh so frustrating!

  4. I love the photos of your booth at the markets! Hope this new one turns out to be great fun for you.

    Warm hugs,

  5. I know what you mean about forgetting what you learned...I seem to forget a lot these days so have started lists which drives everyone mad. What a great surprise to find the stamp :)
