First I must thank Leeann for coming to my rescue and pointing me in the direction of my lost posts - then I thought I would show more of the old sewing tools I bought at the fair and then share with you my love of vintage fabrics. I have some left over from when I sewed for the family and then I found I could buy more at school fairs, and from the Op shops - and friends gave me some - all this before others decided they were great to collect. Not to worry I have quite a stash and I do enjoy using them.
Here are the old tools, a button hole attachment with additional dies and a black tin with contents.
I rather liked the idea of raw edge applique, having made a cushion with needle turned applique I feel it is not exactly my thing! This block appealed, the background is a square, then there are three circles, each one getting smaller sewn onto it - you cut away the excess from the back; then cut the whole thing in quarters and re-arrange as desired.
And on the back I put the left overs - plus my first Kiss - far too big!
I have enjoyed listening to my music in the car - the rest of the technology is on hold though I have just printed out a photo of one of the quilts from a Shut-in Stitcher using proper photography paper on my own printer because I forgot to get one done at the Red Shed - woohoo, another skill learned!
Have a good weekend all,
