Welcome to my blog this Sunday morning!
I am linking this totally quilty post to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching linky HERE! Come see what other slow stitchers of all types are posting!!!
I have had several quilty acquisitions since I last blogged.. and I am loving being an empty nester… no kids to divert funds to!!! hahaha 🙂
Last week I sold a computer locally .. I had bought it last year for my daughter but she turned her nose up to it and told me finally I should just sell it.. so I did! lol Turned out the lady who bought it is a QUILTER!!! She admired my hand quilted wall hangings and the quilt on my frame waiting to be quilted…. then a couple days later I found this lovely Christmas bag filled with Vintage Quilting Goodies!!!
The boxes are heavy duty with vintage Singer sewing machines on them… I love the stripe too! They are all 3 the same and they nest… it was fun to open them up and keep discovering another round box!!!
Inside each box is a divided top section that is removable and leaves a nice area for a project.
Then there was the sign… all these items quickly found a place in our home…
Above is the Sewing Room sign proudly hanging over the sewing room 🙂 I just love it!!!
And below is 2 of the 3 boxes… they have found a home on the bar.. the smallest one found a place near CJ’s toys so he can figure out how it works! 🙂
Also above, you will notice some other fun items… well the lady who bought the computer and gifted me the items I have shared had a garage sale yesterday… I went and came back with this cool project bag you can see better below…
It is a Laurel Burch if you were unsure.. .it is a DOG print… appropriate with our Daisy always on our minds when we aren’t home! lol I figure this will be a fun tote for a project like the little angel money holder I plan to make for a Christmas present ….
Or one of the million other ideas I have in my head currently! lol The above fall fabric is 2 yards !!! I plan to make placemats out of these! The other 2 fabrics are fat quarters and I fell in love with both.. all together I spent $10 on these goodies YIPEEE!!!!
Then I also ordered a fat quarter lot from a range of fabrics called “Button Tree Lane” by Henry Glass…
I especially love all the sayings on the center fabrics… from a distance it looks like whisical colorful paisley… but when you look closely they are all quilty /sewing related wordings in the paisley print! LOVE!!!
And a growing new friendship to enjoy also!
My main focus in quilting has been hand quilting to finish Starlight … Starbright!
I finished the 7th block….
And turned the quilt to start the 8th block….
And I already am making a good start today on this 8th block! I hope to be ready to bind this beauty in about a month.. I know it sounds far away.. but this stitching takes time and life isn’t slowing down much lately to give me good quilting time really.
Follow me on facebook if you like to see more frequent progress than I show on my blog… you can find me as “Kathi B. Clower”… my profile pic is a pic of me and this quilt in the background too! lol
To keep things honest please comment here if you plan to friend me there … that way I know there is a connection without having to look at how we know each other! lol
Thanks for stopping in… make sure this happy day to …
