Sewing Dreams

I have big plans to get reacquainted with my sewing machine over winter break. There are lots of projects on my to-make list, including some Christmas presents that I'm just giddy to make.

Yesterday on my errand-run, I popped into a thrift store and came across such a lucky find. Remnants and ribbons all packaged up together and being sold for a song. I pawed through them to make sure there were things I could use, and just fell in love with the ribbons above. They're gorgeous and soft and will look so pretty adorning some sewing projects.

One of the remnants is a large piece of dark brown fabric with white embroidered designs. I love the embroidery and can't wait to sew something with it.

There were lots more fabrics and lace trims in the package, so I'm going to have fun playing around with everything.

* What are you making these days? *

  1. Ahhhh, you lucky duck. Don't you just love stumbling upon a little treasure trove. I've been lucky finding vintage sheets -- I even have a friend who hunts them down for me on her travels at thrift stores along the way. Lately, I've been making lots of quilts from the sweetest, softest sheets. They make me smile. I hope you have fun using your new finds.
