Vintage Follow Up.

I found a photo of Lura Canfield, one of the quilters who had made a block for the quilt I shared last post. I forgot to add too that Fern Canfield is her niece and perhaps they made the quilt for Lura's sister in law, who moved to Chicago for work, after her husband died. I'm sure they never imagined that their work would be rescued and treasured for the glimpse of history this lovely textile provides us. The internet has made it so much easier to access information as well as sharing our connections across continents.
    We have just returned from Melbourne again as we were cat sitting and getting some maintenance jobs done at our new home. I am back working nights again this week and plan to paint another bedroom at the end of the week. We have finished 4 bedrooms now and just have one more to do as well as the main bathroom. We've also ordered new carpet so things are gathering momentum now and we are still decluttering and moving boxes to our Melbourne home but we are making progress. My blog writing is lessening for a little while, as life is very busy, but I hope to have more to share very soon.
Hugs, Jan Mac
