So, how is 2017 going for you so far?
The teacher & the student have both gone back to school.
I’ve adjusted to being another year older…
Christmas & all it’s trimmings are put away,
but I’m lucky that it still resembles Christmas in my sewing room
& I’m back at the sewing machine.
Meet Sweet Cherry Wine.
This is Blackbird’s new fabric collection by Moda,
displayed on my extra cool Christmas gift from David!!!
It’s an antique thread display case/cash wrap
from a general store circa 1880-1890, that he found on Craigslist.
I feel a bit like the Olsen’s (from Little House on the Prairie).
(and a Coral Bells by Jan Patek charcoal that I added)
In case you couldn’t guess,
it’s going to be a new little Dresden plate quilt!
These are some of the Mini Dresden petals.
More Mini petals… (powered by Diet D.P.)
and some tiny Dresden petals waiting for me to start stitching.
We’re going to Rosemary’s this weekend, yeah for us!
I’m planning to get a lot of this quilt done.
I’ve already got a good start.
I’m using my “new” cutlery tray that Chloe bought me for my birthday.
It makes assembling little Dresden petals all the more fun.
Fun meaning I’m not looking all over for stray petals!!!
She also bought me a table made from an antique treadle machine
to put my “new” spool cabinet/cash wrap on.
For now it’s in the basement (my fulfillment center)
where I plan to use it to store my shipping supplies & brochures
but who knows where it will end up?
Must get back to work!
Just keep sewing…
