New Necklace, originally uploaded by jenib320.
I have been on the lookout for a metal bobbin since seeing this necklace on pinterest. I am happy to report I found one for $.10 thrifting this weekend! Yummy Park Slope yardage came today, splitting it with a friend :)

Folksy Flannels, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Found some time to work on my Folksy Flannels quilt yesterday! I'm making a plus quilt! Megan had mentioned something about using my Plus Quilt Tutorial for her FF stash and I could not get the idea out of my head! So I must admit to being a total copy cat! ;)

  1. Wow, I love that jewelry site! Such awesome stuff :-)

  2. I just found a handfull of those metal bobbins the other day, I still have the machine I use them for too.

  3. My boyfriend gave me a pack of those exact bobbins for my birthday. I totally would've sent you one!

    Although it IS much more rewarding to find exactly what you are looking for! :)

  4. awwww george looks so cute all stretched out! thats a cute lil bobbin necklace!!!

  5. This is the first time I've seen an oversized plus design. I like how it has all the movement of a plus quilt without being busy. Nice composition!

  6. wow that necklace..i have some metal bobbins that i just might use to make one sweet!

  7. Love your blog and your bunny is just too adorable!

  8. I've only just found your blog so I'm reading it waaay later than it was written. This post made me smile lots though - I see on my Nan's old Singer machine and it uses those bobbins. I never even thought of them as anything other than little pieces of normality.
