Vintage Doll Sewing Greeting Card

I bought some cards at a yard sale last week. I was looking for one to mail to a quilting friend and came across this one. I just had to share it with all of you. The books in the back ground on the right say, silk thread, pins, and darning thread. It is just too adorable.doll1

Here is the write up on the back of the card.

New to Blogging

My dear friend Sue, who I met through a beloved online quilting guild, has started a blog. Ladies she is a very talented sewer and Christian. She put up a post about some adorable dresses she made for her grand daughter Matilda. Matilda is the same age as Andrew. (I just love that name). So please stop by and tell her I sent you. Hugs and happy sewing.

Happy 4th Everyone

I hope you all have a great day. We are going over to our friends house for homemade ice cream, swimming, and then fireworks when it gets dark. They have a huge box of fireworks. It should be fun.

Andrew is walking so good. Hardly ever crawls any more. I got him a potty and put him on it for the first time a few minutes ago. He wasn’t to sure about it. He cried and wanted down. I hugged him while he sat there so he could see what it was like to sit there. Once I took him off of it he wanted to play with the seat. Too funny. He has gottenup between 4:30 and 5 am the last few days. Way too early for me. Ugh.

Last night I got some blocks put together into a top for a wall hanging. It is my oldest UFO. I started it 3 years ago. It is going to be a birthday present. Not going to say who for.  Here is a sneak peak.
