Pins & Needles Quilt Shop in TN – look at their row!

Stacey Slockbower came up with a genius idea for the 2018 Row by Row Experience! As most of you know, the theme for RxR 2018 is “Sew Musical”. Stacey loves the music of the 50’s. She called me and we came up with a cool row and Stacey kicked it up a notch by requesting a whole quilt be designed of the 50’s music theme! It was really fun to design! This quilt is a keeper – or should I say a “getter”! Stacey has moved into a bigger beautiful space go visit her in Chatanooga! It is a great city to spend a weekend in!

Huge blast from the past!

Yesterday I was cruising on Facebook and my cousin Betty, in my home town of Otisville NY,  posted a pix and a note to me. The note was about a painting a friend of hers received as a gift. The painting was signed “D. Gabel 1977.” I had painted it as a sophomore in High School! That is crazy! Sure enough it was  the painting that win 1st place in the Orange County fair over 40 years ago! Now that is a crazy memory on this first weekend of summer 2018!FE7542EC-C3C3-4AAA-8879-AD2D5E71EC6154F7E2EB-ED3C-422E-9FAD-9085A4E48988.png
