punch point treasures

Filed under: Tons of other stuff made with fabric — perrymoffitt @ 9:56 pm

I have become “that sewing girl” to a lot of my friends and I got a big box of hand-me-down sewing supplies recently and in the box was 3 of these embroidery projects. Punch point? I don’t know. But they remind me very much of Anna Maria Horner and her recent embroideries.

The best indication of what decade these were done is the hot pink unicorn that screams 1980’s to me (and makes me giggle too).

I have made 2 new summer dresses this past week and mini-me REFUSES to wear them. And so it has begun. I fear her tastes will be different than I in the next years. So, just imagine lots of pictures of a toddler in cute homemade dresses here, I am sure she has her own ideas about what those dresses really should be. More disney princesses than my own taste I think.

We took a day trip this past weekend to Annapolis and I was lucky enough to stop into a fabulous quilt shop; Cottonseed Glory Quilts.

I practiced some restraint and got just a medium sized stack while toddler and husband played a gentle game of hide and seek in between the bolts.

And there were oh-so-many bolts. Huge amounts of fabric always make me happy. I always feel a little disappointed in the new style of boutique fabric shops, vast amounts of space with only a few bolts are a waste on me. Not so at this little gem, when you are in Annapolis, make some time for this nice place.
