Reproduction 1930's vintage fabric

I made this quilt for my sister over 9 years ago! It was a Christmas present I made for her and I still love it. We visited PEI for Easter so I thought I'd take a photo of it while I was there. The fabrics were from a little shop in Lethbridge, Alberta called Thistledown Quilts. It was at that store where I learned to quilt!!

Red and Pink mitts

I have some different colors of roving wool (used to make the little thrums) besides the white, so thought I would try a different color combo for these mitts. I like the red thrums, I think it contrasts well with the light pink. But I must admit, my favorite is still a dark mitt, with the white thrums. The next ball I have is a beautiful turquoise color, I bought it at the Seaport Market in Halifax from a farmer in Liscombe I believe. Have a good day!

2 more Aprons

So, I've decided to keep the pear apron for myself, since this fabric is hard to find, especially the aqua pear and apples (alexander henry). Love the coffee cups, but I can reorder this easily in the future since it is relatively new. I have 2 more finished aprons, but have decided to leave it as is, that's enough of my photo on the blog!! As my 9 year old says- you need a mannequin!

I've linked this post to Quiltstory, lots of inspiration over on their blog! Check it out.

Another apron I made for a friend of Michelle's. My girls took these photos for me (a little blurry, but you get the idea).

Baby Shower card

It is so cold and windy outside today, I probably should have done the photo in the house-I realize now that it looks a little blurry. Anyhow, I have a shower to go to tomorrow, so I decided on these images from Stamping Bella. I cut out each clothespin and the little clothes, then colored with prismacolor pencils.

Baby gift with Decor Elements

This is the last of the canvas art for awhile! A friend is having a baby in June and I wanted to get this to her before she did too much in the baby's room. So, these are 12 x 12 canvases, the scallop frame is 11 x 11 and the animals are from the alphabet animals in the Decor elements book by Stampin Up! So cute, she loved them.

Snug as a bug blankie

My brother has a co-worker who just had their 1st baby, so he asked me to make a blanket for him. So, yesterday I put this together, it's fabric that is also a line of scrapbook paper by My Mind's Eye-love it.

Decor elements tree

Here is a piece a friend requested I do for her. The tree is by Stampin Up!, their Decor Elements line. I cut the tree into 3 pieces and then put it on the canvas that I had painted in ivory. Hope she likes it!
