I pulled all my reds, white, and blues out to stack, sort and put together for pictures and for decorating in the farmhouse...my house. And before you know it July 4th had come and gone. But I love all of the Americana, all the red, white and blue decor.
And I made a few little things. Little houses, marble cake (polymer clay), napkins, and strawberries.
Another simple thing to do is make little star quilts. It takes a fabric for the star and a fabric for the base, or the front that the star adheres to (I use heatnbond)
Ribbonwoodcottage has several patterns for Americana style decor, diy miniature making, star quilts in small sizes 7" x 7" and so much more. And my patterns are simple. I love to inspire people with basic sewing or making skills to make and sew things. I remember getting so frustrated in 4th grade when I was learning to sew...with that thought in mind, I deliberately make my patterns easy so that people can ENJOY making what they are making!

Hello everyone. I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. We have several military people in our older generations, so it is always a good time of hearing family stories that are amazing.
This is a miniature scene I did for American Miniaturist magazine, with all sorts of fun Americana style miniatures.
Miniature Star Quilt Pattern can be found HERE. It is one of the easiest miniature quilts you can make.
Since I adore the Americana style, I have collected a few red quilts, and a few navy quilts. But I need a few more. Just sayin' (insert big smile.)

Hey everyone, this will be a quick post. Recently our daughter had her baby and instead of being able to bring her home, the baby had to get some extra help and is in the NICU. She is holding steady, and we are praying over her, praying for healing, and thanking God for her life. She is so sweet and adorable. My daughter hasn't been able to hold her yet which she has been very emotional about. But they had to hook the baby up to a ventilator immediately after birth. I told my daughter that we needed to change our focus to 'the baby is alive because they hooked her up to a ventilator after birth.'

I also keep the things I use the most nearby so that it is easily accessed when sewing or creating.
I am presently in the process of moving my sewing room
but here are so older pictures of my sewing area. I used quite a few baskets, and an armoire for some of the fabric. I have a lot of fabric!
