Ramblings of a Crazy Old Lady
I have lots of pretty antique plates that have been waiting for a good idea.
Here's how to make one....
Take a dessert size plate.......
and a dinner size plate that look nice together.....
and one glass candle stick holder.....some glue made for glass and there you go. You can use them to drape your pearls and diamonds for a very eye catching jewelry holder or you can use them to keep your pins, buttons and miscellaneous sewing items looking cool in your sewing room.
I made one for myself too. This has a platter on the bottom and a ring holder on top. I did not glue the ring holder on yet. Still trying to decide.
My tree skirt turned out great I am very happy with it. I love the true red color.
Yesterday my guild held a silent auction. I bid on this and won! I love that random brown plaid block on the left hand side. It is completely hand pieced.
My friend Christine made this little quilt a while back and I kept telling her I was going to steal it. She gave it to me for my birthday to keep me from becoming a thief!
So today is my birthday and I am spending the entire day sewing. I am ashamed to tell you it took forever for me to make this block today! I am terrible at piecing and really strive to make it somewhere close to the right size. I have the 1/4" foot and everything but unless I go agonizing slow it is always off. At this rate the applique will go faster than the piecing!
