Thread Happy



I cook alot.
I sew alot.
I collect vintage fabric.
 I used to make full-size quilts.
Now I just make tiny pieces of art 
that satisfy my sewing obsession.
I like to make stuff that is practical, things I use everyday.
Things that make me smile!

So if you can't take the heat 
in your kitchen.....
MAKE COOL POTHOLDERS!!

truly my most beloved form of art...
objects we use in our everyday life,
hand made, embellished, singing with import and personality.
just like these!

These are great.I never throw away old jeans. They make the coziest quilts. You can get several squares from each leg. Plus I cut some squares with the pockets on them. Like this. Thumbs up!

Had some problems posting, but I'll try again. Your potholders remind me so much of my mom who has been gone since 1968. I still wear the aprons she made for all of us every Christmas.

Oh, so very, very pretty!
I love people that cook and sew a lot. They are some of my favorite kinds of people : )
Beautiful project!

Beautiful in their simplicity,like colorful flags on a line brightly waving hungry hearts into supper. I love the denim and sunflowers together.
xo,

You almost have me getting my old electric machine out!!! It's nearly vintage now, but then I used to love the old treadle singer machine my mum had, the pace was much slower and somewhat therapeutic! Have you got one?
