What to do with doilies and linens.

From Pam Thompson's Pinterest board
What a GREAT idea for all those linens and doilies passed down to you by a loving grandmother or great grandmother!  I have some beautiful antique embroidered ones they did...some of them even have crocheted edging (all by hand). Follow this link to the Pinterest view!

Memory quilts from baby clothes...even add a stuffed animal or doll!

Memory quilt
Is your "baby" all grown up now? And you just can't get rid of those cute clothes that bring back happy memories? Or, that beloved stuffed animal? Make a "memory" quilt! (I didn't make this one, but DID make one for a client). The trick to adding the stuffed animal is to unstuff it (save the stuffing!)...cut it in half...sew most of it back onto the quilt block (usually by hand), and leave a hole big enough to get your hand in, so you can restuff that half of the animal or doll.

These are cute and easy to make. Or, contact me and I will make one for you  :)
