Happy Saturday.  Here it is warming up and there is not a cloud in the sky.  Making of a beautiful day.  It makes me want to go out side and work in my flower beds or read a book.  Well yesterday my sewing machine did not even get turned on.  I ran errands all day long with my son getting him ready to go back to school.

Last year I made this skirt out of a pair of old blue jeans and a vintage table cloth.  I just love it but I am trying to decide if I should leave the hem raggy or I have some light weight knitted trim to go on the bottom.  It is suppose to be frayed but I think it needs dressing up.  What do you think?

Made this tea towel a few weekends ago.  It is a Late Bloomer Quilts pattern Sweet Hearts.  I just love hearts and rick rack.

This tea towel is made from the left overs of my skirt.  I think these small roses where the border of the table cloth.  It is so pretty hated to waste any of it.  Still have a little left and there are faint stains here and there but that is what gives it that old look and  that makes me love it even more.  Well I had put my Circle of Friends quilt aside so I think I will work it that a little bit today.  Hope everyone is able to get out and enjoy a little sunshine.



  1. the skirt? I would dress up the hem - the raw edge with teh bits hanging down would annoy (and tickle) me. Love the teatowels but would never be able to use them! Way too cute!

  2. I made one of those skirts for my daughter and she loved it, I did too, I should make one for me!! Yours is BEAUTIFUL!!! I just love that material, and love your sweet little tea towel!!! Pretty!!!!!! I like the unfinished raveling hem myself. ;)

  3. What a great idea for a skirt. Now I wish I had kept some of my older tablecloths. I'll be sure to keep my eyes open in the future. I would definitely dress up the hem a bit. I think it would look finished and more polished.
    Love the adorable towels!!!! Too sweet.
