I'll be honest though, getting to bed before 10 and not "having" to go into the office was nice.
I've been working on setting up the furniture in here, to include setting up a table for the hubby so he can play his games in here with me while I stay up sew on the weekends. He only plays on weekends so we figure we might as well be in the same room :)
I am starting to feel the itch to make something.
A soldier of hubby's had a baby this past week so I'm going to make a quilt this week, I drew it out and got the fabrics washed and picked.
Did you know that's how I started sewing? Simple square baby blankets for new littles being born, I even did up a bow tie pattern rag quilt all by hand once.
Keep an eye out, after I finish up this project and finish the rest of the office (fabric) boxes new items will be surfacing.

The apron, waist srap and trim on sleeves are made from a tea towel,
this is part of my upcycle vintage love catagory.
I really am very happy with the way it turned out and I cant wait to make more with my stack of tea towels I have pressed and waiting

I love old hankies, teatowels & embroidered pillowcases.
I admit to having a good sized pile cleaned a pressed sitting in my fabric stash.
In my search of "what to do with ...."
I stumbled upon this handkerchief to bonnet tutorial.
I tried it out and captured along the way how I did it.
This tutorial will show how to upcycle/relove an old handkerchief
this could be a handmedown from grandpa or a thrift shop find
either way this lovely something old
will be something new and can continue its journey as such for generations
Washed and pressed handkerchief, ribbon, thread, large needle, safety pin, scissors
Here I used colored ribbon & thread, feel free to use whatever colors you choose
Fold & iron two sides, the back side about an inch, the front side about 2-3 inches
Loosely stitch the small fold down, this will be the back side

This one will be listed along with a few others in a day or two.
I'd love to hear your thoughts
