Happy Sweet Monday! Hope that you had a wonderful weekend!
On Saturday, I finished the quilt top, and I am lovin' how it turned out! All the colors are so cheery together, and it just brings a happy smile to my face.
I used some of my favorite vintage fabrics and feed sacks, which was a great way to use them up and be displayed. Now, I need to decide on the backing and binding fabric. For the quilting, I was thinking doing some hand stitching in the fabric squares or tying it with a cream thread. What would you do?
I made a sweet pink variegated rose pot holder, and I think that this style is my favorite. I love the lacy look to it. I am now offering custom orders for vintage rose pot holders in my shoppe. These would make a lovely gift or a treat for yourself! ;)
A little sneak peak of my latest project. Sweet gingham and cross-stitching!! Oh my!
Last week some pretty mail from my dear friend Paula of Sweet Victoria Rose. I could not wait to open all those pretty packages! She is so talented and has such a generous and beautiful heart!!
Inside was a darling vintage toaster cover, a beautiful vintage table runner, cute yellow buttons, and a pretty handmade brooch that Paula made!
I adore Paula's creations, and was so excited to open one of the packages to find this precious doll and vintage heart inside that she so perfectly made! The heart is gorgeous, and I love the pink and green rose feed sack with the sweet crocheted flowers! She definitely knows how to make my day brighter!
And, I have to say that I just love this doll so much! All the details are so perfect, with her darling outfit, pink shoes, sweet face, and heart lips!! Too cute! Thank you so much Paula for sending me such treasures!! I love them all!! Make sure you take a little visit to Paula's inspiring and beautiful blog and etsy shoppe!! I know you will love her, as much as I do!
Wishing you a lovely and creative week!
