Columbus or Bust!
Treasure Hunting


Since fueling up on inspiration and materials at the Country Living Fair last weekend, I've been lying in bed for hours every night dreaming about new projects.  This morning when I drug myself out of bed--before I ate breakfast, got dressed, or made the bed--the first thing I did was whip these babies up:


They're made from old quilt blocks and punched in to antique embroidery hoops.  


They look great grouped together on a wall just hanging from the hoop, or you could thread a piece of ribbon through the adjuster in the top and hang them that way too.


I found some really cool oblong hoops at my favorite antique shop yesterday--still thinking about how to make them work with this project.  In the meantime, I'll be working on a new set of mother/daughter handbags in a lovely mix of brown, pink and yellow Amy Butler fabrics and maybe some belts using my stash of vintage buckles.  

I've been adding new items to my Etsy store daily.  Stop in if you haven't visited lately!
