After cleaning up such a mess that was the holiday season, including 500 plus catalogs announcing their 60%, 70%, and 80% off sales (of which I participated in none (See simplify posts)). I hestiated and stopped to look at a couple. Two of my favorite, Sundance and Garnet Hill. Here's a little of what I found.
A collection of Sundance quilts. Beautiful soft, endearing prints.
I saw an afghan in Garnet Hill. Looked to be a very simple stripe, but turned out to be a stripey-bobble type throw. Pity they were charging less than $100 for it. I only have a photo scrap torn from the catalog, but I took those colors and have started a series of vintage afghans. I love the look of old quilts and things found around old cabins and so what I hope to do is create pieces that are inspired by those simpler things and days when all you had to worry about was having enough food and firewood.

see ya round the (vintage) corner...
