Shabby fun...

 I finished my first Shabby Fabric's BOM called "Garden Tea Party". It is a pieced and appliqued block.  Very fun to make.
 This is a sewing basket my Grandfather ( my Mother's Dad) made for my Grandmother. Probably in the 1930s. Made with only hand tools. I love it! My Mom gave it to me. She doesn't mind if I paint it. So I am trying chalk paint. I plan to add Dove Egg blue to the inside. It will look "sew" good in my sewing room!!

  1. Oh the history of the block is priceless. You need to put a note inside with the history of it.

  2. Cute BOM. You must maintain the history of the sewing basket. I reupholstered a chair for my aunt - over 75 years old, birthday present from her husband her first birthday after their wedding. I typed up the history and attached it on the under side of the chair. Someday, years from now, someone will read her story.
