Here's hoping that my American blogging friends will enjoy Memorial Day with family and friends. I know it's the first holiday of Summer, time for picnics and fun. But don't forget the reason for the holiday and take time to remember and honor those gone before us.
After months away from swap-bot, I was checking my messages and found a swap I couldn't resist. It was for a quick 'tomato' style pincushion. I really enjoy getting creative with something as small and simple as this. So, I picked out a bit of fabric from my scraps, a little bit of embroidery, a little bit of crazy quilt, and here it is. I started with a 6" circle and it turned out larger than I intended. I'll use a 5" circle and see how that works. I've already embroidered a little Scottie dog and started on a kitten for my next ones. I've got lovely bits of '30s repro fabric to use for these. I hope to show more soon and maybe get some things into my Etsy shop. Thanks for stopping by.
I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit. I began blogging to share my love of aprons. Now I use my blog to share all the things I love.
I learned to sew when I was 11 years old and it's still my favorite hobby. I adore vintage everyday items. I can spend hours poking around a flea market or antique store. I am a stay at home mom, and after homeschooling my son for seven years, I'm finding more time to craft and sew. I have been happily married since 1991. I live in the town I was born in and most of my family live only minutes away.
