Patchwork & Embroidery


I found this at a thrift store a few weeks ago. It kind of looks like a book cover. It has pockets - large & some pen-sized on the other side. I forgot to take a picture of it. I think I'm going to sew up the sides and make a bag out of it. SE, can you see the tiny bit of Strawberry Shortcake fabric? I like the neon floral! Lauren made a patchwork tote bag last week. She hasn't stood still long enough for meto take a picture of it yet.

Saturday I rode with Lauren over the hill to Pittsburg (CA, not PA). On the way we saw a garage sale. She was late and couldn't stop so I stopped on the way home. Here are a couple of pillowcases I bought.



The pillowcases reminded me of an apron I bought last year. Here's a close up of the embroidery on it.
