Cleaning Out

According to my hubby, I have too much stuff. Impossible, I say. But, after looking though some of my shelves and boxes, I decided that maybe he's right. I'm starting to list some of my stuff on ebay. Right now I have lots of cross stitch stuff listed. Take a look! :WaldeckDryGoods on Ebay:

Birthday Pillows

Last week my niece turned four. They recently moved to a new house, and my parents got her some new bedding. I made matching pillows:
I based these on the instructions in this book. They came together easily, and I'm really pleased with them. Stay tuned for my latest project-- naptime skirts! There are more photos from the par-tay here.


...this beauty from LauraJay:
I love it! It will eventually hang in Ava's room, but for now I have it downstairs on the bookshelf so I can admire it.

It's a Little Late...

So, back in December LauraJay and I decided to do a mini quilt swap. We were supposed to mail our quilts by the end of January, but both of us got bogged down with other projects. I've finally finished mine and mailed it off to Canada, along with some other surprises. I had fun making this quilt, and the binding and mitered corners actually look half decent. It's amazing what can happen when I s-l-o-w down! Here's a little peek:

It's made from all vintage fabrics (mostly bed linens). It's machine quilted, and the binding is hand sewn. I hope she likes it.
