A Fairy Tale

A long, long time ago, there was a girl who was just starting out her quilt design career. She met a group of fine ladies at Quilt Connection and they helped her start her quilt design career. The co-owner, Lois Griffin, was [and still!] a funky soul and this girl hit it right off with Lois. 

Years later, the girl continued on with her design career and Lois too, moved on, and changed directions. The shop eventually closed and Lois started to create beautiful things herself. The two met up again for some shopping, for crafty goodness and for a lunch date with Alicia and Tricia.  The girl was inspired by her friend's talent.

Here's Lois in front of a beautiful quilt that was hanging in Pennington Quilt Works today. Now take a look at the GORGEOUS necklaces that Lois made from her own hand-dyed fabric and beads. She's starting a shop soon and I think that all of you need to buy yourself one of these absolutely magnificent pieces of art. 

Who needs to eat when one can oogle fine jewelry on the table?

Here's the girl trying on her favorite necklace. xo, L
