Welcome to my little corner of the crafty blogasphere. My name is Vicki and I blog about home*craft and everyday adventures from the heart of the valley in the Pacific Northwest.

This is so, so lovely. Your blog has me feeling so inspired that I'm itching to start a new project.


I want one too! Laying them out on the floor just isn't working for me. I need to find a space.

me: I'm so with you on that! The days of bending low and endlessly moving scraps around on the floor are over for me I'm afraid.


I love my design wall. I am so used to it I don't think I could finish a quilt without one!


I love your Sue. She has always been one of my favorites. I recently bought a vintage children's book that is about Sue and Sam. I wonder which came first, the book or the quilts? I have also started collecting Raggedy Ann books (nothing like a tangent!) but I knew if anybody knew and loved these things as well it would be you!!


Il like very much this sunbonnet sue... very pretty... I have four books :
1 - The Sunbonnet Sue primer - leisure arts
RedworkEmbroidery from Vintage Artwork,
2 - Sunonnet Sue all through the year, Sue Linker,
3 - Bonnet girls - patterns of th past Helen R.Scott,
4 - Ladies'Day out, with the bonnet girls, Helen R.Scott.


Did you see my post about Pattern Bee yesterday? :)



Thank you, thank you, thank you so much. I have wanted a design wall since setting up my craft room but there were no walls left (or so I thought). You found a wall for me that I didn't even realize was there. I can't wait for DH to come home from work so I can show him your idea! I will probably have to wait a week or two until he has a free weekend to help me but at least I can now dream about how I can hang and rearange my items and not have animal hair all over them from my floor. I have six (helpers) that LOVE to spend time with me when I'm sewing or crocheting or even on the cumputer.

Ps. I wrote a quick note to you under 'Tiny treasures' about plastic canvas and doll furniture. Did you get a chance to see it and think about it?




it's the second that i spend the whole morning reading your blog...

i love the fantastic pictures, interessting themes and your great sewing projekts (bags etc.)

love your website ;)



Vicki, I am always amazed at your creative, interesting, yet so simple ideas. Thank you !! Stay cool. I am melting too. Clarice


I want, no NEED--a design wall. I'm going to go look behind all my doors right now. :)


I don't know how I managed to put a quilt together in the days before my design wall. I love it. Of course, yours is much neater than mine. I sometimes have two layers of quilts pinned on top of each other as I can't wait to start a new one before I've finished the first : )

I love the look of your blog! Very inspiring.
