It has been a busy summer and it’s going by fast. Hard to believe that it is already mid-August.
On summer days when I’m not off traveling and spending time with family and friends, you can find me here...
A great way to start the day, especially because the window above my desk faces east and lets the morning sunlight stream in. After I check my email and do a bit of bookkeeping, I often head over to my work table for a little sewing project.
I am obsessed with cherries lately. So when I discovered vintage cherry-embellished fabric at a local estate sale, I knew just what to use it for...
... an itty bitty pennant banner. Isn't it adorable? If you, too, have a thing for cherries, this mini flag garland is for sale in my Etsy shop here.
Recently I found the prefect rug to protect the floor beneath my sewing chair. Lucy likes it, too. This sweet pooch belongs to Jacob and stayed with us in July. She’s a wonderful dog and we had lots of fun puppy-sitting.
There is something else new in my studio that I’m very excited about. Say hello to my brand new Janome sewing machine!
Although my aqua 1960s Singer is fabulous, it only sews a straight stitch forward and back. So it was time to get a machine with a few more bells and whistles. I spent a day last week reading the manual and getting to know my new machine. It sews like a dream. I think I’m in love!
With “back to school” days fast approaching, I decided to make a few composition book covers using my favorite 1970s floral textiles. Aren’t they pretty? They can be found for sale in my Etsy shop at this link.
This week’s project: throw pillows for Hannah’s new apartment.
