who doesn’t LOVE glittery jewelry for Mother’s Day?!

quick shot of my fabulous mother’s day gifts from the princess…

… on a side note, my mom now works at this adorable vintage store in cambridge called NEST … vintage fit for a princess in fact! thanks to her job she discovered this colourful little quilt, which is now in my possession.

it has a few holes, and needs a little love… which makes it the perfect project for the early designer and myself. she will cut beautiful shapes to cover the holes — and i will sew them on. through the holes i can see the patchwork covers actual vintage quilting but its so deteriorated in places, all that remains is the batting, grey and used looking. i will try to keep you posted, although it could take a while before i actually begin … you see, it’s really cozy. finally, i understand why i kinda have a thing for vintage fabrics. it’s not just the patterns that draw me in…  but the feel. worn cotton (good cotton) is so soft.
