#1 lucky: This antique barber chair and barber back-bar was my hubby's grandfather (Glen)and great grandfather (Ed) Lock's. When we moved to this home and I had more room, I was able to buy these from my hubby's grandpa. I love to collect almost anything old, so it's great to have such a piece of history as this.
#2 lucky today! One of my customers this morning came bearing me a wonderful gift....a couple boxes of fabrics!! Woohoo! Can't get much better than that. People are so good to me! Thanks Mel for the goodies! He loves to go to auctions. Below is the 1st box. Shamrocks for a lucky girl!

Corduroy AND polka dots...gotta love it!
OOPS! Our grand-dog liked this quilt too!
I made this simple corduroy quilt about 10 years ago for my son and his future wife...she liked purple and I thought it would keep them nice and warm. I used the brick pattern because it's easy and fast. It was one of my 1st attempts at machine quilting. I went to get it today and was told not to keep it too long, as it's one they use in the winter months to keep warm, so it's nice to know they like it, but our grand-dog also liked it! In the picture above you can see one of the 3 chewed places along the edges that I'll try to repair. How many of you have similiar stories?
I'll show another corduroy unfinished quilt in another blog post. I'm having trouble getting the pictures in the right spot!
