A Sew Sew Weekend

Yes, big plans here to dive into the stash to sew up some things for the shops. It’s a lovely weekend here and the talk of spring coming has me revving up for spring cottage touches.


Lots of flowers…rosie pillowP1010016kP1010018j …ruffles…P1010070e…vintage sheet fabrics…P1010153P1010077d …and feminine touches to bring the outside cottage garden feeling inside. And why not add some pretty bags that have that vintage vibe to them? P1010062a P1010075d1 Looking back through my finished projects has me inspired to sew up some new things and I have a few new ideas tucked inside my noggin, too.


Sew what are you up to this fine weekend? Enjoy whatever it is that you are going to do!!

What cheerful fabrics! Makes me think of summer -- until I look out the window at the snow that fell last night. Love those ruffles. Do you ever make ruffled aprons?

Debby said...

Love all the vintage materials. Love that banner. Is that your cottage garden. Wow, wish I could grow one like that. Beautiful. Have a good week-end. Mr. Cozy and I are resting and recouperating this week-end.

Becky
Looking at your sweet pillows is inspiring me to get my sewing machine out too!
I love the bright color combinations you use in your pillow and bags. And I actually had a couple of those sheets on my beds.
Enjoy your weekend!

No, no aprons, but would LOVE to make some up that are like the bags. And as for the garden, this photo was taken up along the No. Calif. coast in a town called Ferndale.

Your sewing projects are pure eye candy because YOU have a very good eye for combining colors! I love the pillow in the first photo.

My sewing project for the weekend is VERY simple. I'm making rectangle linen kitchen towels. Can't get any easier than that!

Spent my day packing away winter decor. Did some fluffing around the house for spring. I wish I had a blog so I could share with you, turned out pretty good, I get so many ideas from blogging, thanks for the inspiration. I love your pillow. Have a productive and fun weekend.

Where can we purchase one of these bags?

Julie Harward said...

Hi there, thanks for your visit. I can see how you keep busy...sewing! You certainly have the talent for it too, beautiful items! The first picture..this pillow fits my home to a T. I even have a vintage table cloth with the big red roses and my valances are the red check...so cute! ;D

Mimi Sue said...

Sounds like a fun thing to do. Love your mad sewing skills. I'll be making a few (12 actually) table centerpieces for a dinner at our church next weekend. Mimi

Hi Becky!

I've been buzzing by for quick peeks, but thought it was about time I stopped for bit longer. Your projects look fabulous. You know, I'm partial to your sewing. I love the little hanging pillow I bought from you several years ago. Then I didn't need reading glasses, but now I do so it stashes them in style in my "studio". I think I need to come on a road trip and visit some of the shops in your area. Perhaps during the summer. That would be delightful!

Thank you for the warm hug your blog makes me feel like I'm getting when I come for a visit.

Hugs back,
Janelle

My stash will come in handy, too! I'm working on a new pillow! :) Also learning info for the tour at the Springfield History Museum. :)
