Quilt Show and Rocker...

I went to the "Quilt Reflections 2010" quilt show today. I had almost forgotten about it, with all the Wisconsin excitement earlier this week!!! Good thing I looked at the calender this morning!
I shall show you some of the quilts that were on display later... 8-)

I check this site, "Kijiji" (which is a free classifieds site), from time to time looking for a wonderful find. Last night I found an add for this wonderful rocking chair.
Here it sits in my living-room today! 8-)
This rocker is in wonderful shape! Barely used I'd say, and the wood matches my dining-room table and chairs, as well as my living-room wall-unit, all of which we bought through the Kijiji site also...

It was a gorgeous day out here today!
Spring is definitely here! 8-)

Happy stitchings!
Myra

my mom has that chairs twin! She made a cushin for her back and bottom when she was pregnant with my brother (20 years ago!) and the chair itself is in good shape...the cushin could use some updating and/or replacement!
