A new week and a new vintage stitchery…….

The vintage piece that’s next up is a 33” square piece I picked up in Harlingen (TX) at an event known as “Market Day on Jackson”. Several blocks of historic Jackson Street are dedicated to street vendors of various sorts each month on the first Saturday. It’s a street party with live music, food (of course) and sellers of everything from bee & honey products to cute ribbon bows and hair ornaments (a very big thing in Mexico and here in the Rio Grande Valley) to antiques, plants, leather goods, etc. To see a bit more on this event, see here and here. I picked this next piece up from the same gal who had the pieces in the first link, above. IMG_0384    I’ve been doodling some (feather) ideas……IMG_0386. I’m not sure where this will all go, but here’s a couple of detail photos……IMG_0384 - Copy IMG_0384 - Copy (2)   So many possibilities!!!! The teal green fabric just seemed to set off the cut-work well. The final binding will be this same fabric, but I’m getting ahead of myself a tad…lol!

Please, come again and see what’s in store for this beauty…………

    Hi Doreen! Saw you last year at Llano Grande. Thanks or your posts on our fb page. I am finally beginning to teach myself free motion on my machine (I’m a longarmer who burnt out several years ago after doing it for ten years for others).. Im excited to get started and you are such an inspiration! Thank you!

      You are so kind, Kathy! I completely understand the ‘burn out’ thing. I’ve altered my quilting direction, also, and am in process of letting go of quilting for others. My vintage stash threatens to take over my fabric stash (which really MUST be dealt with as soon as we return to MN!! lol!). Stitching on my little Juki/DSM is so totally relaxing! Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m sure you’ll be seeing me next year……plans in the making………….hugs………

  2. I sure have been enjoying watching your work with vintage pieces. Your pieces are wonderful! And you can NEVER have too many feathers. I love them!

  3. Market Day on Jackson sounds like a fun event, meandering among the merchants, viewing their goods.
