Suzette's Beautiful Sewing Kit

I LOVE this sewing kit that Suzette made.

She used Beverly Sheldricks pattern.


It is not just a piece of fabric.  The "fabric" is made from Hexies which are little fabric pieces that are used in some quilt patterns.  She sewed them together to create the fabric.

Here is a peek at the inside of the Kit.  

The fabric collection is called Slipper Rose.

Here she is teaching me to make a Hexie.  

There are tutorials on the web that will show you how.


Suzette made this Grandmothers Flower Garden Hexie Quilt.

Amazingly Beautiful!

Daygown, Bonnet and Sacque Set.

Daygown is from my pattern Sweet and Simple Daygown Collection
It is such a cute and easy pattern .

The fabric is off white Fairy Fabric.  The Lace is a pretty Maline edging.
Click on the picture to enlarge it.

The same Friend who made the last several Blog Posts also stitched this outfit.  
The Bonnet, Daygown and Sacque make a wonderful set for a new Baby.

Here you can see the embroidery that is stitched onto the Bonnet.

I really like the special touch she did here.  She Pin Stitched the hem of the Bonnet Ties.
Very Elegant.


I will be teaching the Pin Stitch at the Saga Convention in my class "Playing With Lace on an Heirloom Pillow"

The Sacque is made from Swiss Flannel.  Yummy!


The same lace is used here and on the Daygown and Bonnet.

Beautiful!!

Baby Wrapper and Bonnet Set

I love this pretty Baby Wrapper.  

You put it on over Baby's Daygown to add a little warmth.

My Friend made a matching Bonnet too.

The Bonnet is trimmed in Tatting.
Soft embroidery on this pale yellow Swiss Flannel fabric.
Sweet!

She stitched this Antique Double Featherstitching (which is unique to my Embroidery Book, by the way!)

She did a wonderful job.  Her stitches are perfection.

Pretty Daygown and Bonnet

This Daygown is from my pattern Sweet and Simple Daygown Collections.
I think the Bonnet is from my Baby Bonnets Two pattern.

I went to visit a Friend recently and she showed me some pretty things she's been sewing.


She served me Earl Grey Tea (my favorite) in a pretty Tea Pot.
A pretty Tea Pot is very important!

I like the soft colors she chose for the embroidery on the Bonnet.

There was matching embroidery between the Buttons on the Daygown.

This is the Quilt that the Daygown was on.
Very cute!

Lunch in My Sewing Room

My Friend Bunny and I are stitching a Block of the Month quilt together.
(it's her idea!)


So, she came over to stitch with me and we had lunch in the sewing room.
Which was fun!

And I finished my first block.

WBR Museum - The Plantation Store

This was a wonderful display of old button cards.

There was a dry goods area in the store. 
But the lighting wasn't good so my pictures weren't good.


The Plantation Store.


 I love enamelware that has flowers on it.

I was wishing this was not a museum so I could purchase this cute Sugar Bowl from The Plantation Store.

This is the end of my fun time at the WBR Museum.

Love, Jeannie 
(having more fun in 2014)
