Coin Purses

I had some friends with birthdays this month so made little purses they can use as makeup bags, camera bags, or whatever.

I like to add beaded zipper pulls.

I think I need to make one for myself out of this red and white fabric.

 One of my favorite shops here in Ketchem has the most amazing window displays. Here they are at night. Charming!

Breakfast and Antiques.

We love to eat breakfast at The Kneadery.

This is there Country Fritatta. Loaded with spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, bacon, hashbrowns, eggs and cheese. I end up ordering it every time. Yummo!

Photos from the Antique show.

This is a vintage half apron.

Cute sign.

Loving this display of Pyrex.

Nice to know that I am vintage!! We received a set of these Pyrex bowls for a wedding gift and I still have them in a box in the storage. The small one was going for $12.00.

Love this basket!

And these lawn chairs make me happy! My mom has some of the blue and pink ones.

Vintage mini Singer sewing machine. It was going for $70.

Vintage Quilts and Antique Show

Saw this at the antique show in Hailey Idaho.

Purchased this one from a lady at the antique show. It was her mother's and she made it from feed sack. It was made in the 1930's and was hand sewn!

Also purchased this one. Hand sewn too and made mostly from feed sacks in the 1930's.

Close up of the back.

Bought these from a different vendor. There were 13 of them. Two were the pink and turquoise fabric.

Close up of the blocks I bought.

Cute children's chairs.

Love the ironing board.

I am grateful for the modern comforts that we enjoy!

Sun Valley Vacation

Did some single track biking up Adam's Gulch. Took us up the mountain for some fabulous views.

Beautiful scenery along the way.

They really know how to do bike paths.

English Paper Piecing

 I've found a new craft. I'm learning how to English Paper Piece. It's so much fun. You use paper patterns. I went on line and found a site that you can copy the patterns for free. Let me know if you want it.
 Cut the fabric 1/4 inch larger than pattern.
 Tack fabric around the edge, sewing through the paper pattern.
 You need six to make the star, and six for the boarder.

Sew diamonds together to make a star. Then you sew a boarder around the star to make a hexagon. Another blog said you need to make 240 blocks to complete the quilt.
I have this cute clutch a friend gave me that I am using for my supplies. This is such a fun take along craft. Also I love that you don't have to think when sewing.
