I come to your blog when I need my soul soothed. It is like a visit with my late Grandmother... your favorite things look like things she had.

Thank you for the good feeling your blog gives me.

What a lovely picture and it does so remind me of my grandmother and how her hands were never idle!
Have a wonderful day!

My great-grandmother was a wonderful seamstress. Her house burnt not long after she died and everything was lost. I treasure the one appliqued quilt square I have that she made and for some reason was at my mom's. I also treasure a well worn & repaired fabric doll with embroidered features & clothes that my grandmother made for me. Love your blog, it inspires me and also makes me reflect on memories from the past. Take care & stay warm!

I'm lovin this picture--would have far too many scissors, pinkeeps, etc if I didn't "Just say no" throughout the days! These oldies are great-thanks for sharing

Hi,Lori, I just started following your blog. You and your works of art are delightful! I have a quilt very similar to the one you posted a pic of with the caption "antique quilts send me over the moon" and I think I have one very much like it. Do you have the history of yours? I always wonder where these beautiful artworks come from and the ladies who stitched them. I am heading over to Etsy to see your items for sale, I've got a mug of cocoa and I'm going to thoroughly enjoy my visit!
Warmest Regards,

I too love vintage sewing things--machines, needle packages, notions--they just make me feel good, as does seeing yours.
