Patchwork Goodness!

We have been busy, sewing away. We rescued these patchwork pieces a few months ago and finally we found the inspiration we needed to make something up with them. These beautiful, hand pieced, vintage 30s or 40s, patchwork, quilt pieces needed to finally be turned into something and their shape was just perfect for these canvas purses!

Adorned with bright, springy, vintage buttons.


And here's a little preview of the bags that are coming next......

I am still working on the photos of mom's new children's clothing. Soon, I promise. I got to spin today for the first time since I was probably 8 years old. It's very methodical and I find it extremely relaxing. Our first spinning class is tomorrow and mom and I are excited! We will be having more spinning soon, so if you'd like to come and join us, feel free!
