todays wips

today seemed like a good day to start work on some vintage quilt blocks i've had a while. these were bought from an estate sale in the states, a bag of blocks put together but never finished. so this afternoon i began sorting sorting and trimming.

work is tough sometimes!!! the blocks are put together with some lovely old feedsacks as well as some dress fabrics. i always think it such a shame that someone put so much effort in to starting a quilt but for whatever reason it was never finished. i will piece the quilt top together, add some wadding, backing and binding. the quilting will be done by hand to suit the age of the cloth. hopefully someone will love it and want it on their bed or sofa. i'll post more pictures as i do more work on it.

i also stitched a pile of birds, bunnies and ponies from some gorgeous liberty fabric and quilting cotton. a few evenings by the fire with a chop stick and big bag of stuffing are what i have ahead of me. life in the fast lane!!!
i wouldn't change it for the world.

be thankful for all that you have in your life and stop worrying about all that you don't have. if you are reading this on your laptop or phone and have a roof over your head and people in your life that you cherish then you are blessed. do not take it for granted.
