Pattern. This week I actually took a few photos to respond to the weekly challenge instead of sifting through the archives.
It was a wonderful Mother’s Day with an unexpected trip to meet the family at The Wilds in Cumberland OH but stay tuned for that post. No time for uploading tonight. Using the iPhone camera tonight, looking around the kitchen for patterns. Came upstairs and saw the afghan on the bed. Impromptu pattern photos.
Traffic pattern- coming back from The Wilds we were totally stopped on Interstate 70 around Zanesville.
China pattern. I used to like the idea of mismatched china. Service for 12 in twelve different patterns. It was an idea.
Silver Pattern. My grandmother’s Moonglow and some random pattern in my drawer. Used to be you would select a silver pattern when you were getting married. Lots of couples choose stainless these days.
Knitting, Sewing and Smocking Patterns from yesteryear- another life. I used to do all these things when the kids were small. I still knit.
Pattern in Nature
A Chevron pattern– the crocheted afghan that a coworker’s mother made for my mother. I call it the Good and Plenty afghan.
Pattern in the lid of the jam, sitting on the kitchen table

I always loved your idea of a different pattern of china at each place setting. I thought it would make for a beautiful table.
Hi Ruth! My silver pattern was picked for me when I was born and I received pieces as birthday and Christmas presents from my two godmothers. When I got married, my mother and I picked a stainless pattern that best matched my silver one. That was an interesting (and very generous!) tradition, I guess. I love the mixed china patterns and often do this at our cabin.
Happy belated Mother’s Day! I love your blog.

Great patterns! I was wondering if you would show an old Simplicity or Vogue pattern. Liked the smocking and knitting patterns.
Would have had to dig too deeply
My favorite was the china patterns. Although the good and plenty was cute too.
greetings with the knitting patterns of my wife:
This is a challenge well that seems tailor-made for you, Ruth. You’ve such a great eye that this must have been a breeze. I think the hard part for you would have been to “cull the herd” to a representative few. 🙂
So many wonderful memories in all of these patterns. I love your comment about the knitting patterns etc belonging to “another life” !
Thank you Ruth for the ping back about Rockaway !
Perfect for the challenge. Thanks for the pingback.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
wonderful ….. loved every pattern and your ideas about what has patterns, or where the word is used ……”What china pattern did you choose? What silver pattern?” 🙂
Your comment about the “Good and Plenty” blanket cracked me up.
Love the china!!
