Back to the Flower Garden

Even though there was frost on the ground this morning...flowers are blooming inside.  The blue fabric here is actually from the 1930s or 1940s.  It's one of the prints I'm lucky enough to have from my Grandma's stash. 
 
Just look how pretty it is...I love everything about it, especially those little doilies around the roses...and the little squiggles in the dots of the background.
 
One more here...I think it's ok...not my all time favorite, but it will be good in the garden. 
 
Since my friend has received her birthday gift, I can show a couple ornaments I hand stitched for her.  The goose is felt...blanket stitched together but the beak & feet are glued on.
 
This little cutie is now on my friend's desk keeping her company until it's time to put up the Christmas tree.  I have to laugh every time I see this goose...so cute.
 
I also made her this little calico snowbird.  I love this vintage fabric from the 1970s-1980s.  I'll have to make a flock of these. 
 
It's a big game day here today...The hated Steelers are here in Cleveland...I'm hoping the Browns can win this one.  At least Cleveland is playing football this year...in past years you thought a high school team could probably beat them.  New coach...lots of good young players...we have a chance!
 
 
***UPDATE***We beat up those Steelers 31-10!!!***
 
I'm linking to Kathy's blog again...then back to more slow stitching while football is on. 
 
Happy Sunday.  And Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends.  Enjoy!

  1. Love that vintage fabric! Your flowers look so cheery. I decided to clean some on my attic yesterday since it was so rainy and gloomy. Found a lot of older fabrics I had forgotten. One was red fabric with the year 2000 printed all over it.
