1/2 Vintage Quilt and 1 cute toy

I promised I would write about how to make crocheted flowers in this blog BUT I haven’t wrote the patterns out yet…SORRY.

I have been working on this quilt off and on for 2 years! And its still itty bitty. Maybe that will be my project this week! 95% of the fabric is vintage and the rest are little scraps of fabric. It is hard to find vintage fabric in South Dakota. I need to go back home to Tejas and stock up!

While I am sharing sewed items–I came across this guy today while cleaning. I did NOT make him/her–“it.” I bought this at the fiber fest in Fargo, ND this past summer. I think it is sooo cute and not to mention the pocket sewed on the back! What a cute touch! She even had tags with her info on it sewed onto the back. Seems like I remember her saying that she also made teddy bears…

    Hey, I wanted to comment on your most recent post, but it glitched somehow so I’ll just comment here…
    Anyways, I love love love your color for your Baby Surprise Jacket, that is going to be lovely (and such a fun pattern)!I really enjoy your blog and your projects. I think you and I have the same taste in patterns. I clicked the link for the wrap on ravelry and immediately put it into my queue, I have some bridal wraps I need to knit up for the summer and that will be a fun shape. I’ll be checking back in to see your progress on it!

      About that wrap–I was going to do the trim in that green/teal blue color BUT don’t you think it would look so pretty with the dark plum in the middle and then trimmed in a cream color/off white?

      • Emelia says:

        Yes I think that would be beautiful, and also very wearable. If I tilt my laptop display just right I can certainly see the purple tone in the photo, and I think it would really sing next to a creamy white. Go for it!

        I was just reading more on your blog–that would be such a neat job to go around and meet all kinds of shop owners. I think yarn stores are about the best place on earth! I bet you get tired of traveling though. I know I do!

      • Emelia says:

        Oh the job is a dream! I love all the people I meet and the travel isn’t terrible. The pay is beyond awful at this point (just starting out is tough) and I need to be super-naturally disciplined to never ever buy anything, which is tough when my job is to hang out in yarn shops.

      • lilmommacass says:

        I can see how that would be an issue–spending your money on yarn bc you are constantly surrounded by it! You must be a very self disciplined person!
