 Hello and a happy sweet day to you!
Hope that you are doing wonderfully and having a fabulous start to the new year! I have been busy working away on some special projects and new pretties for the shoppe.
 A new item that I have been working on are these sweet vintage inspired dresden hot pads/trivets. I went with the old way of hand stitching a circle piece of batting and fabric on the back and a blanket stitch around the center. I am really happy with how they turned out! 
 A sweet vintage feed sack in the middle adds a sweet touch to them! They were fun to make and the striped one I tried out for fun, but loved how it turned out. Might have to make a pink one, too!
 I also made a pretty dresden pillow cover that will be in the shoppe soon, too! Doilies are always my favorite to add to the center to add a vintage touch!
This sweet Royal Copley doe and fawn vase is a lovely new addition to my home that I just love! Added some vintage plastic roses in it for now until spring. I am also working on a vintage stitching of a doe and fawn in this same pose, that I hope to be finishing soon to share. 

I look forward to sharing some more projects with you and will be having a shoppe update in early February. Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me! 
            Wishing you a most lovely weekend! xo

  9. So, so pretty Heather!! I just love all the fabrics, they are just too sweet!! I think you should make a pink stripe trivet/hot pad too, I'm sure it would look adorable next to the blue!! :) I love the yellows and pinks, looks so springy!! Wishing you a lovely weekend!! xo Holly

  10. I just love that pillow! I would love to learn how to do the crochet edging. Do you know of a tutorial or book that teaches how to make such a lovely edge?

    1. Hi Lori,
      I don't know of a tutorial or book. I just crocheted a blanket stitch around the pillow and then did a scallop trim. There might be one online that is similar for pillowcases. ;) Hope that helps! xo Heather

  11. Beautiful! Both the work and the fabrics

  12. Your talents and patience never cease to amaze with your special creation. That fawn vase is just so sweet.

  13. All your hand work is just awesome. You make the most beautiful things. I love how you used a dollie in the center.
    Hope you have a wonderful day.
