sewing nostagia










It seems Winter had reared its head again!  I have been feeling a bit of the frumpy dumpies around here and needed some pick me up.  I turned back to my beloved sewing themes using some GCD Studios goodies.  Love the homespun chic line and will never tire of it.  Even though I did not grow up in the 50s I feel a kinship with it and the sewing is comfort to me.  I know I have said before my Mom is a sewer and it speaks of nostalgia to me.  I made another paper pocket and stuffed it with fun tags.  I tend to overstuff because I keep coming up with more ideas.   Hey if making tags keeps the frumpies from taking over I will make them till the cows come home!  Anyways hope you don't tire of them!  These pockets have become what doilies are to me and I simply refuse to stop.  I am off to make some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies....I NEED sugar!  hugs, cherry

I absolutely love the tags! I love to sew and craft, so these are just so awesome! I was wondering if you could tell where those stamps can be purchased? My favorite is the sewing machine oil tag. Thank you!

Wow - I'd not stopped by for a visit for a few days- and you've been busy Cherry!! :) So inspired by what you come up with. I really love the burlap- just more texture!! I have some burlap trim I've been hording that I need to break out.

These are all amazing Cherry. You did an amazing job with Nina's stamps.

It has been in the 80's here the last 3 days in Iowa. I am sure we will pay for this later. We normally still have snow on the ground in March. :)

Hugs~
