a vintagey winter quilt and pillow

Hello and a happy sweet week to you!
I just finished this sweet project that I made for the lovely folks over at RJR Fabrics with one of there new lines coming soon this June called White Christmas by Patrick Lose.
I really love the cute snowmen and winter scene prints in this line, so I thought this sweet vintage snowmen family from a Workbasket magazine was perfect to stitch up! I decided on a embroidered patchwork pillow in redwork and of course crocheted scallops to finish off the pillow!
 I went with a simple patchwork baby size quilt, as I wanted to highlight the snowmen and winter farm scenes. I hand quilted it to give it that vintage look, which I love!
 This would look sweet in a child's room for Christmas time!
 I love the aqua and red in this line!
 And a couple closeups of the snowmen and winter scenes! Aren't they sweet!
 This was a fun project to make with these vintage inspired Christmas line! Thank you to RJR Fabrics for letting me play with this new line!

Now, it is back to hearts and sweet Valentine pretties for the shoppe!
 Wishing you a most lovely and crafty week! xo

 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
