a pretty vintage rose

Hello and a happy day to you!
Thank you for all your sweet comments on my baby quilt! I appreciate them all! I hope that you are enjoying some lovely weather. We've been having a little June gloom, but the sun is finally shining a little today!
I wanted to share this sweet vintage crocheted rose pillow I made for a lovely customer! I have always wanted to make one, and so happy I finally had the chance for this custom order. I love how it turned out and will definitely be making one for myself very soon! I will also be listing this pillow cover as made-to-order in my shoppe come mid to the end of June for my next shoppe opening! You can get some other sneak peaks at my new items over on my IG!

Thank you for visiting with me and wishing you all a most lovely weekend! xo

bon bon bebe baby quilt

 Happy sweet day to you!
Hope that you are having a lovely start to the week! It has been so cloudy and pretty deary for over a week, which is so unusual for sunny CA! The sun has been peaking out a little bit today, so I tried to get these photos taken of this sweet baby quilt that I just finished featuring Bon Bon Bebe by Robyn Pandolph for RJR Fabrics
 I have always loved star quilts and thought it would be a sweet way to feature some of the pretty and cute prints.
 Instead of quilting it, I tied it with a cream perle floss, which came out lovely. The background I use a cream and yellow dot fabric from the line that is so pretty. And the binding I used the aqua and cream dot fabric from this same line! It's the perfect aqua shade.
I love the softer shades of colors in this line with that pop of aqua!!
Now to get it washed and all crinkly!! ;)

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting with me today, and for your sweet comments on my last post! I am in the process of starting some new summer shoppe items, so I'll be back to share some peaks soon, and you can head over to my IG to see what I am working on, too!!

Wishing you all a most lovely and crafty week!! xo

a vintage inspired kitchen set

Hello sweet friends!
It seems to be such a busy month of projects for me! This sweet vintage inspired kitchen set I made for the lovely folks over at RJR Fabrics with their new line Bon Bon Bebe by Robyn Pandolph that will be in stores soon!
I just fell in love with this gorgeous print from the line. It has such a vintage feel that reminded of a feed sack, and the colors are beautiful! I was inspired me to make make this sweet embroidered tea towel and 50's style apron set.
 I love bluebirds, so this sweet vintage pattern seemed to be the perfect one to stitch up!
 This apron was inspired by a vintage feed sack apron I have in my kitchen that I have always wanted to recreate and when I saw this print, I knew I had to make it!
 It is a very simple but elegant apron with a pretty touch of cream ric rac around the edges and pocket. I didn't have the actual pattern, so I just traced the vintage one I had, which worked out pretty well!
This is the vintage one on the left. I am so happy with how they all turned out, and it always seems to be easier when you have such gorgeous fabrics to sew with! 
I am also working on a small baby quilt with this same line, Bon Bon Bebe, that I will be sharing soon! 

Thank you for coming by and visiting with me today! Wishing you a fabulous and crafty week! xo

stash-busting blog hop with retro mama and giveaway::CLOSED::

Hello sweet friends!
Well, I am so excited for today's post as it is my turn for the The Stash-Busting blog hop to celebrate the most lovely Kim of Retro Mama's new book Scrap Happy Sewing and 50 Fat Quarters Makes! Both books are full of beautiful and sweet projects and inspiration!
 (Scrap Happy Sewing photo from Kim Kruzich)

I was excited to read through Kim's new book as I love scraps and have some very loved pieces that are just meant for projects she has created!
 I made this sweet Cozy Four-Square scrappy pillow cover out of Kim's book, and had so much fun choosing some of my favorite scraps for it! 
 I added the cream with black swiss dots binding as I am going through a little polka dot kick right now and loved the sweetness it gives to it!
Simple quilting lines Kim has you add to each square gives it such a sweet touch and gave me some good practice on my straight lines! 
 Scrap Happy Sewing was such a lovely book to look through with beautiful scrappy projects to make!  I can't wait to make some more projects. I think Kim's On-a-Roll Crochet Hook Holder is next on my list as my hooks are quite a mess right now, and need a cozy, organized spot to be!
 Now for some sweetness!  
The lovely folks over at Stitch, Craft, Create
are kindly going to give one of you dear readers a free e-book copy of both these fabulous and must have books! All you need to do is leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner on Monday, April 27th!
