New chenille quilts will be coming to the shop soon!! Well, they are 'new' to us, but most are of vintage chenille. Only the mint green and pastel blue is of new chenille. What do you think? I love the bright blue and the purple vintages, but also the softness of the vintage pale blues. Since there is snow all over up here in New York, the pictures are indoor shots - not our ideal, but when we can, outdoor pictures will replace. What do you think? Which is the favorite of the bunch?

Last night was the FNSI that two ladies run through their blogs. Handmade by Heidi and Crafty Vegas Mom pick one Friday night a month and then recruit those who sew to sign-up. It doesn't matter what the registrants do, but it is to get in front of the machine. I'm usually very tired on Friday night by the time I've worked all day, commuted home, played with Little Olive, put her to bed, and ate dinner. Last night was no exception. While I didn't get a whole lot finished, I did make progress on my tote bags and a bridal party bag order. I must have sewn 30 Olive Street Studio labels, pinned a stack of various bag parts (pictured on the right in one shot), cut the linings for the bridal party order (she wants navy in and out, but pale yellow lining for the bride), sewed 10 pockets, side seems for five tote bags, and then all the side seems for the bridal order. More to come bc I think I'll be able to get the bridal linings completed and the outsides cut and side seems sewn by Sunday night. We'll see!
