Never at a loss for projects, or is it just me???? Now, I had every intention of buying zero fabric this morning when a couple quilt ‘buds’ and I took off for the Calico Hutch Quilt Shop in Hayward, Minnesota. I’ve already stated my stash overflows ridiculously but,…..well…..you see, it was 25% off everything in the shop (minus machines and such)!! Really? OK, surely some little item(s) wouldn’t hurt! So…these little pieces just hopped into my cute little basket and made their way home with me…. I mean, one can always use another set of pillowcases….and this fabric went so perfectly with my summer quilt…… Truly, a very quick project…..for this evening.
And, as for the current vintage stitching started here, I have come this far (in spite of a ton of interruptions/side-trackings)……. I’ve been asked how I come up with ideas for something like this and my response is usually that I listen to the little item that’s before me. This held true in this case, also…… I will continue with the flower/leaf theme in some fashion yet to be determined! Stay tuned…………….
