Cathrineholm, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Phew! It's been another busy week around here! Happy Spring Day everyone! In addition to it being the first day of spring, it's also my birthday! I am now 22! ;)

My Mom and I hit up the monthly flea market in my hometown today! I found the large Cathrineholm pot (on the bottom!) this morning! It matches the little one I found with Sandy this past summer! :)

We also found this Dansk Kobenstyle brown baking dish! It's my first piece of brown! Neither pieces were very "thrift" priced, but still much better than current ebay prices!


Single Girl, originally uploaded by jenib320.
I am having a love hate relationship with my Single Girl quilt. I love the fabrics and colors. I hate the piecing. It's going to be put away until after school is over!

Happy Scissors!, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Amanda knew I had been lusting after a pair of these Gingher handsewing scissors, and got me a pair for my birthday! Yesterday I made them a little cute holder with Folksy Flannels scraps. Christina showed us one this style the night before, it was the perfect quick project!

Happy Birthday! Wishing you a wonderful year ahead! I love those fabrics too..I made a table cloth out of 'Dream On' charm squares with a few Botany fabrics and other assorted yellows..I loved making it and now I love owning it. Your quilt will be just as geogeous!
