Victorian sewing

Today hubster took me to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) downtown Toronto. It’s been awhile since we were there last, about 10 years. Sadly the textiles area was closed but I did find a lovely Victorian sewing kit, wish I could’ve taken it home.

And although this piece has nothing to do with stitching, I really love the design of this ancient asian piece.

A note to the locals: dim sum in Markham is WAY better than anything you can get on Spadina, it’s like night and day!

Have a great long weekend, welcome Spring!!

Dresden Pillow in it's natural habitat

I spent yesterday morning quilting the back then DH and I went for a dim sum brunch and I goofed off all afternoon in our kiddy pool, it was such a beautiful day. This morning I completely finished the pillow cover then tossed it in the washer/dryer. I’m super happy with the results, I put a lot of time and love into this pillow.

My next task is to make a Bremen flag table topper.
