This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Heavenly Embellishments 002

This is the contents of a sample "Classic Collection" bag. A total assortment of all things old, vintage, antique....nothing newer than fifty years ago and some things dating back to the mid 1880s. This pack is perfect for someone working on a traditional cream on cream block or an heirloom crazy quilt block and some will even contain a vintage un-used iron on transfer from my collection. This pack also contains some very old original diamantes from the 1920s and a piece of handsewn broderie anglaise made by a young pieceworker over 100 years ago.

I really considered buying one of these, and no doubt will in the future. I was thinking that I could sew with some of the same things my mother might have sewed with - had she been in Oz, at least! Where in the world do you find things that old in a great enough quantity? You must be simply haunting the estate sales!

OMGG these are just lovely! Now I realize what the gals are just a gushing about when their baggies arrive. Now I can't wait till I clear some bills and I too can order a baggie or two or three . . . LOL!
