a little something

I was so inspired by my flea market goodies that I had to start a little embroidery project of my own. I found this sweet girl while searching online for who knows what awhile back. I'm trying to fill a space in the girls room. I'll post the wall when I finish.

flea market finds

I went to the rose bowl flea market this past weekend with my mom. I haven't been there in 12 years I think. It's crazy! Great stuff, but way over priced and crowed. But we had a good time becoming overwhelmed. I found these little treasures. The feedsack butterflies have been made into a pillow case. The super sweet embroidery is a crib sheet. I had to have it. I think I will work it into a quilt somehow. It reminded me how much I love to embroider.

a year in the making

I've had this runner half cut out for a year now. I wanted to make it for a friend, her kitchen colors are blues and whites. Friday was her birthday so I finished it!! feels good..
The background fabric is osenburg. The leaves are hand cut using fusible web and roughly stitched on. I used the scraps to make a binding. 

I can't take credit for the design.. I think I found it on flickr awhile back.. I can't find the picture.

another mini

While scrounging around my iphoto pictures 
I found this little cutie I made for a mini quilt swap with LAMQG. 
So... if you've noticed I haven't been sewing lately. I'm bringing out some old photos because you really need to sew a lot to have a blog. Yikes!
New things will be coming soon!
