Thank you so much for all your sweet birthday wishes! They made my birthday extra special and I am so thankful for each of you! If you haven't entered my birthday giveaway, there is still time. I will be announcing the winner on Monday!
Over the weekend I went to the local monthly flea market, and came home with some cute treasures. This vintage rocker was sitting there with a price tag of $18, and as I stared at it, looked underneath, and just thought, should I take home another chair, the man who was selling came over, and said that he would give it to me for $10. Well, with that price it was coming home!
It is small, so I am thinking it is a children's rocking chair, but I am not really sure. I love the detail in the wood, and I am already thinking of what color to paint it. ;)
The seat is in need of prettiness, but I love the buttons securing the fabric. I will definitely be cleaning those up, and re-using them when I recover it. Another project on the list! ;) I still need to take some pictures of my other treasures to show you on Friday.
Last year when I was learning how to quilt, I made this sweet fall patchwork and appliqué table runner with some of my favorite fall fabrics. I love quilting, especially on the smaller scale.
There is something about patchwork, that I just love!
I added some pretty appliqué maple leaves, and stamped fall words around them.
Fall is in the air, or at least I am forcing it to be in my home! Have you started decorating?
I have been busy working away on the items for the boutique, which is coming so quickly! Some cross-stitch phrases ready to be put into a quilt, and the vintage grey one is going to be part of my display.
Some tea towels getting there scalloped edging, and...
the next batch waiting for theirs. I have one more batch of tea towels after these to crochet edgings on, and then they all can be adorned with a dresden flower and vintage doilies. I am a little overwhelmed, but I know it will all get done! So, I am off to work away!
Wishing you all a lovely day!
