Vintage Summer, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Somehow posting got away from me! Graduation was last weekend and then I had to serve jury duty all last week. Between that and Blogger going on the fritz, it just didn't happen! That and the shop has been crazy! Thank you so much! :)

I dressed the futon last week for summer! My newly finished Dream On quilt is perfect to go with my vintage sheet pillows!

I finally took the plunge and sewed with knits, making myself my first top! I used the Kyoko Misses pattern by Patty Young (Modkid). It was fantastic! I want to make a million of them!

Since I graduated on Sunday, we decided to celebrate Mother's Day this weekend. I made this mini quilt for my Mom!

My parents gave me this unused-in-the-box vintage Cathrineholm Fondue set for graduation! I have been pining after it for years. It has been at a local antique mall forever! :)
