What I've been doing.

Been doing a little nest fluffing.  Got out these vintage linens and cleaned them.

Thought that these looked good on my mantle. 

This one settled on the end table.  Not sure which Grandma any of these came from.  Two Great-grandmas, and one Grandma did these kinds of things, and I have stuff from them all.  I am the one in the family who was crafty, so I was blessed to be gifted them! 

I've only gotten about half-way through this it just goes on forever!

Rewarded myself for making it to the half-way mark by making a spring purse that I NEEDED!  I saw this made up in an LQS.  When I checked out, the lady helping me had made the sample.  She said it was so easy, and she had made a bunch because everybody loved them...

The clerk was right...easy peasy.  Sewn up in a couple hours, using only 3 fat quarters, scrap batting and a zipper.  My stuff is already stashed in there.

Now, let's go fabric shopping!!!

edit:  I linked up with Fabric Tuesday, be sure to use the button on the left to visit all the other finishes!
