Not much going on in my fav thrift stores lately, but a lot of sewing going on! And, I guess what I found this week was my sign to 'Get Busy'!
I love retro sewing patterns! Last year, I posted that my husband bought home 2 large garbage bags full of vintage sewing patterns, that are now sorted and stored in vintage suitcases throughout my home. The oldest pattern I have is from the 1930s!
Sew, with that in mind, I took advantage of the overnight quietness in my home to work on WIPs!
The first, is my table topper. I finally found a backing I wanted to use...denim. This would be great to use outdoor, as well! I've pin-basted and am machine quilting; then will add the binding...
These next two projects are ongoing! They both come from two great blogs that I follow! The first, is a Teeny Tiny Nine Patch Challenge from Julia at GreenQuilts! Great Stash buster project! This challenge uses 3" squares of fabric! I plan to make 100. I've got about 48 more to go! Here's the latest addition...
Aren't they pretty?! I love color!
The next, is a project from Karen at Selvage Blog...Asterick Quilt! This is so much fun! I need to make 50 of these blocks...here's what I have so far!
I've only got about 30 more to go!
And, what started my week off on the "Good Foot", was this...
Wheeler & Wilson No. 9! Can't wait to get her into a cabinet with irons and sew, sew, sew! I belong to a wonderful family in Treadleonia! Where we talk, share, advise, swap, sell and gather about people-powered machines (i.e., treadles, hand cranks). She came from a home in Tennessee to me!
This is only the middle of the week and it's been 'full and joyous', thus far! I hope you all have a wonderful week and a better weekend!
Peace, Junk Love, and HAPPY SEWING!
