Just signed up for another round of the Pillow Talk swap! It's one of my favorite swaps and the designs are always an inspiration and so much fun to watch as they progress! Don't miss out ! Sign ups going on now!
I leave on Monday to visit my daughter In Pittsburgh. I thought a new travel bag was in order and found a great piece of vintage drapery fabric with an interesting tree design on it. I could resist filling the trees with little raw appliqued birds. The bag has a top zipper closure and is fully lined with lots of pockets for the trip. The large rough mother of pearl buttons pick up the colors of the bag and the birds. Now I'm ready to go!
I found this on flickr this morning. I love anything old related to sewing! It really lets all of us know that we love and are doing something that has fascinated women since the invention of the sewing machine and probably before that! This is such a wonderful collection! Check it out!
I will be leaving on Monday to visit my daughter in Pittsburgh! Couldn't resist making her something special to surprise her with! This was my second try, I wasn't happy with the first bag and cut it to pieces! But I think she will like this one. The bird fabric is one of my favorite Joel Dewberry prints teamed with some Amy Butler! It is a big bag lined with pink and white polka dots and some Kaffe Fasset floral that looked great with the outside prints! Lots and lots of pockets inside. I think it will make a great travel bag for the summer. You can see it is much bigger than all of my 18 inch pillows! The zipper closure has a fun crystal piece that I was lucky to get in a swap recently. Hope she likes it! Can't wait to give it to her in person! It's been over a year since I've seen her! (and my 4 darling grandsons!) Hope they still know their Nana!
couldn't resist sharing what I found on bailiwickdesigns flikr photostream today! I love the creative use of so many bits and pieces of lace, trim, paper and more! She has used so much detail and each egg seems to have a character of it's own. Check it out! A great inspiration to carry over to other projects from cardmaking to quilts!
