Vintage Pincushion

I added a couple of pincushions to my etsy site
( last evening. This is one that a made using part of a cream and sugar set. The creamer already sold so this is it! It is a USA sugar bowl and I took a vintage doily and made a pincushion out of it and attached it to the top. The pins I made from corsage pins-very fun and easy to make. The picture is one of many that I keep in my stash. It is hard for me to part with any white or off-white pottery. I love any of the McCoy,Hull,USA or other unmarked white stuff. Enjoy!

These three little baby shoes were also added last evening. Two are a matched pair and then one single leather one that is fastened with safety pins. All three have handmade pins and a vintage photo attached.

New Quilts

Here are a couple of new quilts that I just got back from the machine quilter.

This is a Filmstrip Quilt. I have not used this color scheme in a long time-I think it turned out pretty good.

This was a block of the month I made a few years back and just got around to the setting and quilting. Both soon to be in the etsy store.

Happy Sunday

Well,another week gone and when you look at the calendar almost another year. I must be getting old but where does the time go?? This season is always a busy,sometimes stressful,one and it is important to remember to slow down and enjoy everyday. Sounds easy enough but in reality it is pretty hard. At least we should never give up trying.

New Blog Look

Well,isn't this a great looking blog!! Jill at Bittersweet Cottage Design did a fabulous job and was a joy to work with. I love it when people are willing to share their knowledge and expertise. I am not great with computer stuff and asked tons of questions and she was very patient with me. Thanks Jill.
I am busy getting info out on my pages so keep checking. I plan on doing some tutorials and will get one posted this weekend. Nothing fancy but a quick and easy project that anyone can make.
