A wonderful slightly snowy and cloudy day!!

I have moved my Singer featherweight sewing machine to the kitchen table, to sew a crib is inspired by this one (below) from "Piece'O Cake" designs! A FREE PDF file is here !

I have just strip-pieced a background (below) to use behind some bright pink appliqued "wheel" flowers on this Baby Girl Crib Quilt! I will try to use fabrics for the flowers which repeat the deep pink in the zinnias which you see in that one stripe! I may also add a border to frame this "field" and help contain the flowers!


Decorating news!

Amazingly, this antique machine is now considered a decorator item. You can order these old machines...each one of a kind, and when you place an order, they choose your machine! From Pottery Barn!


Another sewing project. Recycled demin shopping bags!

Inspired by Islander Sewing Systems "green denim" pattern. These are made from thrift store blue jeans and decorated with my cheerful little indigo bird logo!

Everything is so neat. I love to sew with my FW too, and we have the perfect snowy day for it.

I love the jeans bags - I've got to make some of those. I don't have a little indigo bird, but I think a fairy would be good on a bag.

The baby quilt is very springy and bright - I love the fabrics you've picked.

Happy day to you!

Brrrrr. Try to keep warm.
You always have cool projects going on. My regular bag is made from faded denim and I love it!
