I'm so exited to have this quilt bound, washed, and up on the wall. But I don't know how long it will stay there. Cause quilts are for snuggling.
This Summer Stash challenge was so fun! Thank you Eileen and Ulla for including all of us in your challenge. This was truly a stash quilt. Every last bit of it I had already. All of the fabric, including the backing, the batting, and thread. I'm so glad I had the striped fabric that I used for the binding. I loooove this fabric. I'm thinking it will make nice pillow cases too.
And look at what my talented Mama made for me years ago. She crocheted this lovely throw. It's so beautiful and must have taken a lot of patience! I can't imagine keeping track of each row to make sure the pattern is perfect. But I'm sure it was easy for Mama, she's a super hero with a crochet hook.
And now my dear friends. I must share with you my antique mall find of the day. Yesterday my little gals and I were browsing one of our local antique/thrifty spots. And my oldest spotted this.
I started to have heart palpitations. She said, "Isn't that a vintage children's sewing machine?" I'm so proud of my 9 year old. She can spot the good stuff!
Oh glory be! Is this the sweetest thing? It's made of metal and is such a sturdy little thing.
We are going to have fun with this little gal. And the price tag? $10. I feel like the sewing machine fairy left me a present. x
