Grandma's Kichen

My sister gave me this pattern last year for Christmas. It is by Lori Holt. It is called "Grandma's Kitchen". I collect vintage kitchen items. I love this pattern!!! I decided that I wanted to make a wall hanging for my kitchen. I took the patterns, and decreased them in size by 50%. The blocks range in size from 2"x3" to 5"x7". Here are
my blocks:

I love Lori's patterns. You can check them out on her blog. It is called "Bee in My Bonnet".
She also has a new line of fabric coming out. It's called Sew Cherry. I love all of the 1930s
reproduction fabric...........maybe there is a new bib apron in my future! Happy Stitching!!

It's been a while.....

These are some of my projects:

I love vintage kitchens. This pattern was a "freebie" from Bobby Socks Quilt Company.

A scottie done on a vintage handkerchief.

Our little yorkie, Gobble (her real name is Gidget), loves to eat pancakes!

These mini yo yo's are fun to make...
