I opened a lil shop in our local Village, called 'Burlap & Lace"
It is a bit re-cycled/repurposed, a little of this-n-that and a bit of whimsy...
some of the stuff in my shop is hand made by hubby and I, as well as items of vintage nature...
I was pleasantly surprised how well I did last week, when I opened my red doors...
I will have to take some photos and post....
in the mean time, I am opened Thurs-Sat and just for a few hours on Sunday afternoon if I want.
My shop is just 10 x 10 and the enclosed porch is also 10 x 10.. so I can display larger pieces as well as rustic pieces on the porch.
The Village is open from March to Nov...during tourist season.

Just about finished with one UFO and the second one started for my intermediate UFO Merit Badge. I'm gonna make it!
But then there's the big one for the expert badge to tackle too!

Here is another UFO I am getting finished and will use for one of my merit badge levels. These are blocks received in my 10" squares Christmas fabric swap this past November. After a scare that I did not have enough of the cream sashing fabric, I found some more in a Dallas shop, bought it, and got it cut out and sewn together. I still need to add a border and get it quilted before it is completed. I love the blocks we have been swapping in my 10" squares swaps. Please come check us out - we'd love to have more join in. We do a different theme or holiday fabric almost every month. We have done Christmas twice, patriotic, Valentines, Easter, boys-themed, and the current one is girls-themed fabrics. A great way to build your stash.

I've used my small, 4 inch (wooden) embroidery hoop so much that I broke the inside ring! Had to buy a new one today, which is plastic.

Thanks for your comments on my quilt, Kat and CeeJay.

CeeJay -

At a thrift shop a few weeks ago I got 12 wooden screw-tighten-type hoops of various sizes for $5.00! Another great find! I love the older hoops.

I like the wooden hoops but haven't found a small one at a thrift store . . . lots of larger ones and I have large ones. The 4" is the one I use to embroider my merit badges. I will keep my eye peeled for a wooden one at a thrift however, but needed one in the meantime! The plastic one I bought does have the screw tighten feature, which I prefer. I have a couple metal hoops that don't have that and I'm not crazy about them, but they're neither one small enough.

I like the smaller hoops for embroidery, I have not been able to find a wooden one. If I run across one I will pick it up.

Ceejay... tomorrow is my day to sew... I have 3 aprons on the sewing table that are long over due!
Our weather has been pretty cruddy too! So I should be taking advantage of it and getting some UFO's finished....
That being said.. I also need to finish up a few more things for my shop.

okey dokey,,, here are the 2 aprons, made from fabric that CeeJay sent me..
All I had to do was buy the backing.

this is what I call a 'Bar Maid/Bistro' apron,,, it can be worn flat or you can gently gather/scrunch the fabric waist band.

the pink fabric is from MaryJanes 'Glamping' fabric design...

thanx & hugz Mz Cj... I used every last inch of the fabric you sent me...

Finished one skirt for Rendezvous.....unfortunately, I lost it when I took a tumble down a hill at the last Renedezvous I attended on Easter weekend. Oh well, some little girl is running around in a really cute skirt that she got for free. I'm ok with that!

Sorry I forgot to take a picture.....

Okie, dokie, here are my finished UFO projects for my intermediate merit badge. Even though these are not "big" projects they were quite time consuming!!

A "Happy Camper" trailer project made into a flag to hang on our trailer while we're glamping. In our colors. Glad this one is done!




And, a project that's been on waiting for a LONG time is this cross-stitch bookmark. A Scottish thistle design in a kit that I purchased in Scotland at the Stirling Castle gift shop a long time ago. The Aida cloth is a very small weave and the pattern intricate. I made a few changes from the instructions for finishing it which took longer but I like better. I'm really glad this is finished!


The back.
