I bought my first vinyl album when I was in the 6th grade. I had saved my money from babysitting and doing my family’s laundry. The Bay City Rollers, did I ever think I was cool. I listened to it over and over again on my parents turntable. Probably drove my mother nuts.
As I got older my collection of vinyl never really grew. Technology changed and I bought cassette tapes. But I do love the hiss and pop of vinyl.
My son has quite a collection. I call him whenever I find them in second hand stores and garage sales. They are just so classic. All the digital music we have now, while crisp and clear misses out on all the colorful covers and the hands on experience vinyl holds.
In memory of all this nostalgia I created On Vinyl the quilt. You can find the pattern in Fons and Porter’s easy quilts. I hope you will check it out.
I also made a new loaf of soap this week. I’m call it Sun and Sand. I think it will be perfect in four, that’s how long it takes to cure, when the January blahs hit. It has coconut milk and coconut oil and is scented with lime, lavender, eucalyptus, and rosemary. It might even fool me into thinking I’m on the beach as I shower in a few weeks. Let’s hope so.
I have a copy of easy quilts available for one lucky winner. Just leave a comment telling me what your fist album purchase was. Good luck! I’ll pick a winner next week.
