Sewing Notion Collection Goodies

As the end of summer and the beginning of fall approaches, I am so excited!  COOLER WEATHER!
It makes me actually want to move around again.  The coolness permeates the house through the open windows in the mornings.  It is invigorating, and I think, 'What will I do today?'

Now don't get me wrong.  I'm not so full of spunk that I am going to clean all the rooms in the house today, or get that huge project finished, or anything funny as that.  But I do see some progress in my work, which to me, is quite exciting!

Sewing is one of my favorite pastimes. Collecting sewing notions is something that I just cannot stop doing!  I decided to pull together some pretties and show them off this week.

Below, packages of Silhouette trim were a recent find that are going in the 'keep' collection!

I hope you are all having a lovely week!  And that cool breezes and refreshing days are part of your future!  Take care and thank you so much for visiting me!

Oh sigh such beautiful happy notions Doni! And you took great photos of them. Delightful blog post.
And lol, yes I so agree with you on being able to move again because of the cooler weather. Don't overdo it though ;)

Dear Doni, I celebrate the cool weather with you! I am totally loving the cool weather and the feelings that it evokes in me. I love this time of the year and I have so long for the change in seasons. I have been following your weather and I am so glad you have been blessed with cool weather.

Your sewing notions are beautiful. I love the vintage wooden spools of delightful colors as well and I have quite a few of them. I could never bring myself to use them but I love looking at them. I am thinking of using them this year on my Christmas tree.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful things. I am always so jelly of your collections.

Hope you are having a blessed week.

Hugs, Beverly

I LOve all your beauties in this post. Such fun to choose from when you are making a creation! But how do you choose what to use??? It is so hard for me, the more I have, the harder to choose!

My dearest friend Doni,

Oh how I miss our lace and ribbon conversations……
I have thought of you so much lately so here I am to say hello !
How are you ?
I see your collection is ever expanding as ever. I have kept my part of the deal going strong over here too ! lol
I have picked up quite a few amazing lace pieces since last time I visited you.
I will be sure to photograph them and post some before the end of the year. This afternoon i have actually blogged for the first time in 5 months. I have posted some gorgeous images of one of my lovely bride's weddings. Her flowers were my dream flowers so it made me smile from ear to ear. My infatuation with all things Marie Antoinette is still going strong so I blame her for my obsession with all things ribbon and lace……lol
I have used a few pieces of lace from our swaps in bridal bouquets and if you could see you would be so happy. There are tiny pieces of Doni's lace and ribbon collection now gracing brides sewing baskets. They will treasure them and pass them down to their daughters one day as heirlooms from their wedding day. I hope you are smiling at this thought. You know how I love to share my treasures.
I am loving the thought that you are enjoying the cooler weather. I too prefer the cooler temperatures but we are only a few days out from Summer so those cool days are a while away for me now.
Now I am going to scroll down through your posts and see what other delightful things you have found and made. Your creative little soul always fills my heart with joy when I see and hear the love and passion for your craft. You truly are an inspiration.
Much love and friendship xoxoxo
