Pet and Patty ...

For this new pattern, I got inspiration from LAURA's love for animals

        In one of her books, Laura INGALLS wrote:
        "They were beautiful little horses, and Pa said they were not really ponies;
        they were western mustangs.
          When Laura asked what their names were,
          Pa said that she and Mary could name them.
          So Mary named one, Pet, and Laura named the other, Patty."

Sweet treats for all year round ...

I don't like throwing the slightest scrap of my favorite fabrics

so I decided it was time to sort them in different piles...

scraps for tags, scraps for clothespins, scraps for berries of different sizes etc ...

I finally decided to start sewing on a rainy Sunday

and I had a beautiful batch of berries ...

Here they are !!!

*****

SOLD thank you !!!

Civil War Hussif Needle Case ...

Definition of a hussif:

 It is  a case containing thread, needles, and other articles for sewing.

They were carried by soldiers in their haversacks during the Civil War,

the housewife or huswife kit was used to store sewing supplies.

These needle cases were made by family members

and given to the men before they went off to war.

******

I decided to sew one of my own and a few days ago,

I did a few prototypes of various sizes.

All sizes are nice depending on what you want to store in it !!!

*****

The complete Needle Case is sold, thanks.

Ma's inventory pillow

Laundry inventory pillows were used in colonial time.

A straight pin was affixed to the appropriate number

beside each item sent for washing.

After the items were cleaned,

the pillow and pins helped to make sure

everything was accounted for. 

******

I decided to create a laundry pillow

in relation with Laura Ingalls's wardrobe .
