Well, it happened. I got what the kids had last week. I am writing this post in between tips to the bathroom. Fun, fun.
I was very productive Friday night. I cleaned and purged my sewing area. I also finally put some fabric into my thrifted embroidery hoops and hung them on the wall. I will add more as I find more hoops. I hope to find some tiny ones so my collection can look more like this.
The bird print is Alexander Henry bought at Hobby Lobby. I had never seen an A.H. print there before. I was really excited! The tiny floral is a 1930's reproduction purchased at my all time favorite, Mary Jo's. I thought the blue/green cotton bud print was Joel Dewberry but I can't find it on his website. The yellow and gray is Amy Butler. The blue is an old night gown with a vintage doily tacked on.
It is so much easier to create when you are not working in a mess. If only creating didn't create such a mess! I really should have taken a before picture so you all could have seen what a horrific disaster it was.
This lady figurine was my Great Grandmothers. I was seven or eight when she died so I don't remember very much about her. I do remember the feeling of being in her home. I remember loving this figurine. Up until a couple of weeks ago I kept it tucked away in my cedar chest. I like having it out where I can see it often. Even though I didn't know Granny well this figurine makes me think of her and what her life was like.
