May you grow old like beautiful lace, cherished and treasured and cared for with grace. Doesn’t that just remind you of your sweet grandmother? I lived with my grandmother when I was five and six years old so that I could go to school before the cut off date. So, on the farm I learned many things; she started me out with a love of the handmade, sewing and quilting. She taught me how to care for and respect our treasured heirlooms so that they might endure to be spoken about again with another generation. Bits and pieces of that past found their way into my new designs this month. I wanted a vintage frame, and the shape will seem familiar – it’s one I designed for my new logo although I had sketched it out for a die some time ago. The fun part of the collection are the extra dies which work wonderfully to make a gift – they are spool toppers. I thought it would be a special gift to customize a spool set using the unfinished wooden spools you get at the local craft store – these are also going to come in handy also for making custom buttons. Last of all there is a bobbin form for winding on a bit of trim, ribbon, lace or bakers twine. Come along and you can see what I made to go in the kit – the pictures are below and the link to the kit has a much more detailed view of the Vintage Spool Box.

Ahem, I know this seems so commercial but thank you — the kits are allowing me the opportunity to keep on crafting. Thanks for letting me gush about my memories. The designs I’ve created are things that are special to my heart and I haven’t been able to find anywhere else. I hope you enjoy or stop by to see what else you can do with the kit.
