One Sweet Sewing Spot
Snowed in and doing a lot
of blogging these days!!
There are so many talented people out there
blogging about their projects and hobbies.
Now I'm wishin' I had a project!!
Yesterday my sister blogged about her
sewing spot and before that the baby blankets
she's been crocheting.
Oh how I wish I had some flannel
and a crochet hook! Last winter she showed me
how to crochet around a hem-stitched flannel blanket.
I was hooked...I loved doing it, especially on
winter evenings when I could hear the
snowy winds swirling outside the window.
My sister is one of those talented seamstress'
that always has something on her machine
(not to mention something on her knitting needles,
a book on the night stand...
oh, and a blanket on the crochet hook)
She's always got some cute hand-made
something or other for her twin grand-girlies!!
I'll be visiting her just as soon as the
roads are clear for a little refresher course
and then off to buy some flannel and some thread!
You can check out her fun blog

Another talented seamstress and
I know is Mrs. Z.
In December I had the opportunity
to have brunch with my mom's quilting friends.
It was so much fun with the ladies...
I blogged all about Mrs. Z
and her beautifully decorated home
(you can visit that post by
clicking here). She had such an array of
wonderful quilts and I took so many photos
I had to break it up into more than one blog post.
She has the most awesome sewing room....
a creative space that could even
turn somebody like me into a seamstress!!
I thought her sewing spot was worthy
of a blog post and I'm sure you will agree.
So, if you love to sew or quilt,
put your needle down
and enjoy a tour of Mrs. Z's sewing room....
I loved all of her old sewing memorabilia,
these reminded me of the toy that my sister had!
such a neat and tidy space
filled with all the tools she needs
this is the ultimate machine that
stitches the large projects.
Machines large and small,
whatever she needs to make gorgeous
quilts like this one
made from all wool....
Such a fun space filled
with memories from her school teaching days
and all of her favorite things...
Who could resist hibernating
in such a creative space?
I hope this inspires you, as it has me!
I'm seeing a cozy blanket with
a beautiful crocheted border
in my near future!!
What do you want to create today?
