Happy First Monday of 2017! For the first vintage Workbasket pattern of the new year, I’m sharing this lovely center medallion fruit bowl designed to be stitched as the feature embroidery on a table cloth or table topper. The whole pattern wouldn’t fit on an 8 1/2″ X 11″ sheet of printer paper so Dave has traced the fruit bowl…

Happy Monday Everyone! Today here in Canada (and other Commonwealth countries) we’re celebrating Boxing Day. For some, it will be a day of hitting the after Christmas sales.

I have always loved setting out candles during the holiday season. May today’s vintage Workbasket patterns bring light into your life now and as you stitch them! Wouldn’t they look lovely embroidered on a bookmark to include with a gift of an inspirational book. They’re also just the right size to stitch and turn into tree ornaments or reusable gift…

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! With less than 4 weeks left before Christmas, the push is on to get more gifts on the go. Most other years, I’d be closing in on the home stretch of gift making but this year I’ve barely just begun. There’s going to be a lot of late night sewing and…

Each of today’s vintage Workbasket Angels is unique yet equally adorable. The first angel could be stitched at the top of an appliqued Christmas tree on a table runner or a wall banner. The little angel perched on top of the music note could be added to a book cover for the music lover in your life. And the one…

I’ve been calling today’s set of patterns the Crazy Quilter Special because when I first saw them I thought to myself they would be perfect for adding to small sections of a crazy quilt block. They could, of course, be used in many other ways as well. Last year, I made an Advent Calendar where I stitched a design on…
