Vintage Friday

I recently found this transfer pack while looking for something else in my pattern stash. I liked it so much I changed my plans and started it this morning. I would like to make the whole set.

Little Bo-Peep

I'm joining Corey for Lil' Vintage Story this morning.

I hope you enjoyed this little story. Once I started I couldn't stop.

Rosie's doll

I've been sorting through all my fabric and deciding what I want to keep and what to get rid of. It can be hard parting with some of it so I'm trying to find new ways to use it. It has been a long time since I've made any dolls, but this is a good way to use smaller pieces instead of just giving them to Goodwill. I also found this old pattern and brought it back to use. This doll is going to a little girl named Rosie.

A long overdue finish

I made this quilt from a kit I bought from County Threads a few years ago while at a quilt show. I actually finished the quilt, had it quilted and the binding on but not completed. It hung in my closet for years just waiting. This past weekend I pulled it out and hand sewed  the binding. I really don't know why it took so long. I enjoy doing the hand work on bindings, I think I just forgot I had it. Oh well , it's complete now and has a new home in one of my favorite places in the house, the same spot I sit and do all my hand sewing.

Strawberry Whoopie pies

This afternoon I took  a break from sewing and did a little baking.
