Photo of a similar wall hanging I'm working on for Fall. Wednesday (in my Pine Ridge sewing class) I worked on my witch appliquè and quilt hanging. It's coming along nicely! Soon I'll have one for Fall along with my Winter hanging and some day hope to have one for Spring/Summer as well. I was hoping to be finished with it next week but, considering the vendor shop prep, it will be a while yet. Photo of the ACTUAL wall hanging I'm working on.  It will be appliqued and quilted when complete. Below are 2 amazing finds from our local charity shop.  I found a vintage Scooby Doo sheet!!  Which just screamed skirt, to me.  Maybe even a matching hankie and bag. ;-)   The photo next to it is a quilt but not any quilt... I could tell by the binding that it wasn't a mass manufactured quilt as the binding was hand stitched.  Imagine my excitement in finding it for only **$10**!!!  But then I took it to my favourite sewing store and it was confirmed.  This

Skirt, bandana and hankie This week I decided to make accessories to go with my newest skirt. A bandana and hankie! A girl can't be too coordinated, right?? ;-) Winchester sporting his new bandana, matching mommy!  Hankies/Reusable gift wrap I will have more of these hankies for sale at the vendor show this month. *Details for the show will be at the bottom of this post. I will have at least 3 rope bowls for sale at the show.  Here is the largest one but there will be smaller as well.  This is a 'Healing Light and Wellness' show so handcrafted items will be limited unless it relates. Rope bowl This applique/quilt piece is super adorable. It's actually part of a table runner pattern but I only have a 12x12" space so will only make this section and maybe even embroider added saying, "welcome Fall- season of the witch". Hope to see some of you at the next show! Healing Light

Worn quilt I started a new project today. A quilt I haven't been able to use in 15+ years due to wear/age. It's a about 30 yrs old and was on my bed most of my high school years. I saw a YouTube video mentioning "borrowed squares" where you just put a square in the spot and stitch around it. No folding etc. Easy peasy. It's gotta be better than not using it, right? Her's was only 10 years old and already showing quite a bit of wear so I feel definitely encouraged for my wee beauty! I've started the 'borrowing' squares here Further research has given me ideas like a bigger square for the centre (the most damaged part), some embroidery or maybe some appliquè.. anything to strengthen it. I cant wait! I finished my poinsettia appliquè square. It's been a delightful project!! It was the thing that started me  thinking about my old quilt. A blessing for sure.
