Penchant for the Past

My newest acquisition a sewing basket ($8 Goodwill bargain) was taped up when I bought it, so I could only guess at its contents but it rattled and was heavy, so let's take a look.

No stork-neck snippers or Weiss scissors. Here are the best of the contents, such lovely sewing ephemera.


I have been entering fabric-related giveaways for some time now and have finally won a bundle through Flit and Bloom. I will highlight its contents when received. 

Pattern of the Day is a Retro Butterick '48, the season for this type of formal gown. 

My machine sewing and quilting projects come to a screeching halt around this time of year. I did indulge on some Riley Blake fabrics in a collection as a companion quilt to my vintage four patch in my bedroom. 

What did you splurge on for yourself this year?
