Thinking ahead to some gifts - I used a little thimble quilt I completed to wrap a bottle - my friend KB told me forget the quilt - she'll take the bottle - but who wouldn't LOVE both?
Quilts aren't just for collecting - they're for giving too!
The basil is from the garden - just a little Italian theme going...
I've been around the house a little more than usual lately so what's a girl to do - but shop online.
I thought I would share a few treasures with you...
The Debbie and Pam at One Stitch Off made this from my custom order. It's my Blog name, and initial on the little bird!
Wouldn't these be great for all kinds of friends and family made to suit their interests?
No affiliation - just a happy customer supporting local business!
Here's a close up: Checkout the tiny needle and thimble!
So then....I got this pin cushion at Prairie Zen - another Etsy Shop.

I also am deciding what design and color to order From Julie: Me & My Stitches
I did a little fabric shopping too - but I'll save the for later...
Little Quilt Update:
I collected these blocks at the Long Beach show - a little wonky - but looks more authentic to me ;-)
I added reproduction sashing from an era close - 1860, and hand quilted it. It's going on Gallery Wall 3!

Back to quilting - have a great week!
