Hope that you had a wonderful weekend! I have been busy working on some custom orders, which I love! Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on the strawberries for the swap and my new items! You always brighten my day!
I haven't had much time for sewing, so my projects have been a little neglected, but I did manage to finish this hexie flower yesterday. I think only two more to do!
I went to an estate sale on Saturday on a quest for wooden hangers, and came home with these two sweet ones.
I really love the aqua one and only wish there was more! A lady ahead of me in line beat me to the other hangers, and only left these, but I was happy to take them home! ;)
I also brought this gorgeous aqua and white crocheted pot holder, that I just fell in love with! I have never seen this design before, and it was in such good condition. There were at least 20 pot holders, but they were so pricey, so I could only take one.
I love the starbursts and can't wait to figure out the pattern so I can make one! I was thinking how pretty it would be in either green or red for Christmas.
This is The Workbasket magazine from October 1955. Every time I read through this, I just imagine how neat it would have been to receive these in the mail and to read through all the fun articles and patterns. The stuffed toys are cute, so I will have to scan them to show you.
Over the weekend some pretty mail arrived from sweet Erin of Why Not Sew?. I was here partner for her strawberry pincushion swap and I was overjoyed with all the gorgeous strawberries and pretties she sent me!! All the details were so sweet, and she even made a cute grey strawberry, which I love!
Thank you so much Erin for hosting such a sweet swap and for sending me all these darling pretties to treasure!!
Well, I am off to work on some orders and maybe work on some unfinished projects. I have also starting planning Christmas goodies for the shoppe and can't wait to start working on those this week. I hope to get my Christmas items in by the second week of November! I look forward to visiting you and seeing what sweetness you have been up to!
Wishing you a beautiful and creative week! xo
