A Little Hand Stitching

 I spent most of the week trying to clean and reorganize my sewing room. Sometimes that’s all it takes to get motivated to sew again.

This is another vintage potholder I bought on eBay some time back. I had already stitched the orange one.

I must admit that I have quite a few of these eBay projects waiting for me. Sometimes I go wild when I get on eBay. I want it all. 🤭

I have an apple left to do in this little series.

This is an old embroidery I stitched several years ago. I found it again when I was cleaning, so I made it into a little pillow.

My problem with making cute things, is I that I usually don’t know what to do with them once they are done. I had wanted a little rag doll to sit on this little stack of quilts. This little pillow will do for now. ☺️

Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers and Happy Anniversary to hubby and me today. 37 years!

  1. Such lovelies. Your work is wonderful!!! I love the old fashioned look.

  2. Beautiful embroidery projects. I admit I have quite a few eBay projects to do too! Hope you have a great week!

  3. Oh, these are so beautiful. You probably don't want to dirty them up using them as potholders. I found several potholders at a church yard sale recently, which was good because the new ones with silicone backing do fall apart.

  4. Lovely little stitcheries. The little girl pillow looks right at home on your pile of quilts.

  5. Love your vintage potholder! ♥

  6. Ok. This post is filled with cuteness and vintage - two of my favorite things! I never thought of going on Ebay to find such cool stitching projects! Nice finds!

  7. I know what you mean. Some things are fun to make, but then you just look at them and think what?

  8. Your collection is so pretty. I always love seeing what you have.
