I came across this 'Precious Moments Baby Quilt' and am trying to date what year this may have been made. Anyone know of the fabric? This is a handmade quilt. Thanks!

Warm hugs,

Love Fabric!

Picked up this darling fabric last week - it's flannel too! So soft and cozy. Not exactly sure what I will make with it but had to have it. On sale too. Score! Love the vintage look of this material. What would you make with it?

Upcycle vintage linen ideas for little boys?

Had a wonderful shopping trip today and found some adorable vintage linens. Now off to create some dresses and aprons with them. Have to also put my thinking cap on to come up with cleaver ways to make something for little boys too. Hum?

In Etsy chat tonight

I meet some really wonderful, helpful folks in the chat tonight. So appreciate every one's advice and help. Etsy is awesome!
This is my first attempt to blog. I can be internet challenged so please be patient with me.

I'm always on the hunt for pristine vintage linens, especially pillowcases, as I upcycle them into adorable little girl's dresses. Gave some for Christmas presents and had such a good response I thought I'd open up a shop on Etsy to sell them and other items I enjoy making.

Vintage pillowcases with intact tatting (the crocheted portion at bottom) and embroidery is so hard to find! Am looking into taking a class to learn this art form to do myself - if I can find the time that is. I already know how to do the basic embroidery stitches, in fact, the picture of the kitty and flowers at top of this blog is a pillowcase I embroidered back when I was a teenager (some 40 years ago).
