"Willow" Pillow Kit

I just completed another project from "Don't Look Now" designs.  It's the "Willow" pillow.  It's a large pillow measuring around 25" square.  Kellie uses raw edge applique in her designs which makes it quick and easy.  Using bright colours up against a white background really makes the colours pop.
Kit - $25.00(not including pattern)  Pattern - $18.50

We Have Come A Long Way!

I came across my mother-in-law's old sewing machine when we were cleaning out her apartment to move her to an assisted care facility.  She took it with her from The Netherlands in the 1940's when they immigrated.  She had bought it used then so I have no idea how old it is.  I can't say that I will be doing much sewing on it but it reminds me of how far we have come as far as sewing machines go.  I am kind of spoiled with my automatic threader and cutter, etc.,etc.,etc.

More Fruit Ladies Has Arrived!

I just received some more of the Fruit ladies border fabric for those who were interested in it at the last show.  This is such a fun fabric to make into pillowcases, purses, aprons, towel borders and the list goes on. I will try to put it up on the web site otherwise just e-mail me and I will process it that way.
