Stitches for Fall


This vintage Christmas stocking pattern I found last week cleaned up so beautifully.  All the little pattern pieces are still in the folded pages so carefully cut.  There were even a few extra images she had free handed.  A local university mascot the Jayhawk, was lovingly drawn.  I wonder which stocking she sewed that on?  The little baby stocking is quite obviously my favorite...hello stitched on the sole.  An image so cute for a bingo card, tag, or Christmas pattern box.  


Car line stitching has been fruitful already.  This is my second pattern in the Cotton Floss set.  You might remember the first. I switched up the same floss colors to give it a different look.  This is now ready to be stitched up into little bits and bob bag.



Now that the cooler temperatures have set in, I am happy to bring out my fall (felt embroidered) Cath Kidston bag.  It was purchased during the summer sale at a very nice sale price.  When it opens I feel very much like Mary Poppins pulling things out of my carpet bag.  Maybe I can pull a cute little Hoosier cabinet out of there one day?

Fall footwear can be troublesome for me as I am a planter fascists sufferer.  Orthopedic shoes can be...well not so cute.  These cute Dansko shoes were right up my alley.  Another great buy off the Internet of course.  

Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my nesting bins.  I have way too much fun sewing.  Followed closely by blogging.

Oh Renee, those shoes are soooo cute! That says aot coming from someone who is NOT into shoes!

While you are pulling out goodies from your bag, pull me out a little white cabinet with glass in the upper doors that has red etching on them!

Well, if you're wanting a cabinet, why didn't you just ask me???? Obviously you've not read the post by E where she found her amazing cabinet because of me. Find the bluebird on my blog and click on it, you'll get the story.

Have you been doing your stretching exercises for the Plantar's issue? I had that last year and got rid of it by doing the stretching exercises......if you don't know about them, google it, you'll find them.

Hugs,
Meri

I love these shoes just darling. I used to have that in my feet too but it went away, this happens, just comes and then goes.

I'm all about comfortable shoes after finally getting my walking cast off last week. I'm slowly getting used to my orthotics. I love the idea of a Mary Poppins bag. You always find the cutest stuff. I found some adorable vintage sewing patterns last Sunday in Allegan. They will be making their way to your house soon, dear friend.

Your post is loaded with things I'm login' a lot. Pattern is a way cool one. I tracked down a Christmas one I used to 'have' and parted with somewhere along the line. Planning some projects with it. Your finds in shoe dept.? Love the shoes. I too have PF and it can be (no pun intended) a REAL pain. New to your Blog and just love all the topics, colors and fun. Thanks. Bet this is too long.
