More reproduction fabrics!! My favorite quilt!

This is the first quilt I made using reproduction fabrics. I just used all the ones I loved and did not care how well they fit together. I had just gotten my embroidery machine and practiced using it on this quilt. I tried every stitch and many different embroideries that I liked.
I raise chickens, so they are on virtually everything I make!! Sometimes I hide them in my work to make it fun to look for them. I think the whole thing came out cute. I use this one on my bed all year.
The pictures are not too great because I had to take them inside since I got home so late today. First day back to work and I got home around 7 p.m. I had forgotten that I signed up to chaperone a volleyball game today and they are very long.

Our girls played great, but lost their first game in like 3 years. What a heartbreaker! I am sure there were a great many tears on the rides home tonight.

So far, I am enjoying my daily BIBLE study (ha--I just realized it's only day 2!) It gives me something to think about all day. During the vacation, I was reading my books in the morning, but of course, now I have to do it at night.

I had McDonalds for dinner tonight, which I have not done in so long! It was not really that good, but I do like the fries. Better not get into that habit, not a good way to start a new year. When you are used to homemade food only, that fast food loses its taste, doesn't it?

Thank you! I have a love affair with the old fabrics and have used them in others too.

Thanks, Amy. We like a lot of the same movies! I just got The Philadelphia Story from my kids for Christmas. I am waiting for that perfect late night when I can't sleep to lay on the couch and watch it.
