Let’s Start At The Very Beginning………

Let's start at the very beginning,
A very good place to start.

When you read you begin with:

A - B - C

When you sing you begin with do re mi

Do you know this song? It's the one Maria used to teach the children how to sing in the movie The Sound of Music. It's been going round and round in my head since last week when we watched the movie on television. It started to spin even faster while I was sorting through some of my antique quilts on Monday. How many of you remember the words to the song or what year the movie was in the theater?
Time goes by and before we know it we're scratching our heads wishing we could answer one of those million dollar questions.

Did you ever look at a quilt, wishing you knew how a quilter came up with the idea to use a design the way they did? Don't you wish you could ask them or just Google that?!



Do you know who this is? Okay, okay, it's me and Clutch.


How about this gentleman?


Or this quilt?

I'll bet 90% of you have no idea who he is, the name of the quilt or who designed it. Those are questions I can (and should) answer along with many, many more. I hope you'll join me on the journey as I document My Life in Stitches.

Let's start at the very beginning..............



PS. The Sound of Music was in theaters during the Spring of 1965.

    I didn’t know the exact date of Sound of Music, but I do know all the words to do re mi. Of course, I knew you and Clutch even before you told us. I’m guessing the gentleman is maybe your father? Don’t know the name of the bunny quilt,or who designed it, but Beatrix Potter comes to mind. Did she do quilt designs as well as the illustrations in her books? What ever its name, or the designer, it is adorable! Do you have the pattern for it? Happy New Year to you and yours!
