My horizontal sashings still need to be sew on but this gives you a pretty good idea of what my little village will look like . I went with very scrappy , a large mix of colours and I quite like it . The object of the game for me is to use what I currently have , which is way more than I will ever use if I am real honest with myself . If you would like to join in on the fun and it is fun , head on over to visit Kaaren and you will find a link to a pdf file of this pattern . Simple construction but really sweet don't you think . Thanks Kaaren for providing us with yet another of your great designs .
I hadn't shown you some little treasures I picked up recently , you know I love vintage including vintage linens so when I spotted these I just couldnt pass them up and they were very reasonably priced too .
Little linen towels , love the embroidery :-)
doily with embroidery
Just love the blue one and the white nakins in back are Irish Linen and will be perfect for doing some stitching on . I think I paid three dollars for the whole lot . Oh there is one more to share.
This is such a soft yellow I couldn't leave this behind either . I think it would be pretty with some stitching done on it too .
Confession time , my local friends will surely be shaking their heads at me this time but I have a very strong desire to buy a vintage "working" straight stitch sewing machine preferably in a cabinet . I have my wonderful FW which I love but I would like a larger model for piecing . I have lots of sewing machines , only three counting the FW I actually use , the other machines are simply ornaments and I thought about getting one of them operational but I think I could purchase one already working for less money . I did find two I am considering but haven't quite decided if I love them enough or which one to choose . I have been thinking about this for a long time actually but the past week or so the bug is really bugging me lol . If anyone local knows about a Vintage Singer straight stitch machine that is available and in working condition please let me know , thanks .
Time to head back to my little village , it needs to get those sidewalks installed . Thanks for stopping by today , hope you have a wonderful day .
