Three facts this blog has revealed about me so far:
1. I sew.
2. I love vintage fabric.
3. I save things.
Here's a collage of all three of those things combined -- the 'I save things' portion being the part where I've saved every photograph of every item I've ever sewn using vintage fabric. You know, so when my life's work is archived by the Smithsonian, it'll be an easy job for the curators.
Now a fourth fact has been revealed.
4. I hallucinate.
(if you click on this photo, it will become ginormous.)
I emphasized my sewing of the patchwork variety since that's been on my mind lately as I continue my quest to 'sew through' my vintage fabric stash.
In addition to full-on vintage tablecloths, vintage yardage and barkcloth drapery panels, The Stash includes boxes, bins and baggies (baggies are so ... not vintage but don't worry, they're hidden from view) of bits & pieces, sorted by type and size, from larger 'chunks' on down to little pieces. I love to put all the colors and patterns together like a colorful vintage puzzle.
I haven't made one of these quilts in a couple of years so I have one in the works now although I'm not sure yet if it'll become a little lap quilt or maybe a patchwork tablecloth.
(a tablecloth made from tablecloths -- what will she think of next?)
I'm kind of leaning toward tablecloth.
Here's a sneak peek of something new from the product development department of the Doily Factory. Can you tell what it'll be? If you have the first correct guess, I'll make one just for you.
