Yellow week: day 5

Yellow: Craft

Some of you might have gotten a sneak peek at this quilt a few weeks back, while it was still an infant. Well looky now, its grown into a full blown adolescent quilt! It still needs backing, binding and actual quilting but that will come. It might take me 10 years but....

This is a vintage Watkins Tea can. Anyone remember those? Way back when I was a wee girl my mom and I Tole painted a bunch of these for gifts. This one is a bit scratched and rough around the edges but I think that adds to the patina.

I dd not stitch this little number yet when I saw it at Goodwill (only a dollar!) I had to snatch it up. As I sighed at the utter cuteness of the embroidered flower adorning this seersucker sundress, I thought 'I could totally do that'! I am going to try my hand at adding a little stitching to the pillow case dresses I am making for Craft Hope. I'll let you know how that pans out.

I had a lovely time participating in Yellow Week (even if I was late to the party) a big thanks to Erin, Tracy and all the other participants.

  1. seriously? you are hand stitching on it? I feel so insignificant...

  2. Mercy... are you trying to shame us all? The quilt is lookin' lovely.
    The little stitchery is so delicate.... I can't wait to see what you do with the pillowcase dresses!

  3. Misty, I can show you how to embroider, if you like. :)

    Thanks Paula! You are so sweet!
