Antique Sheet Music & Flourishes

Sew much fun ...

Hello all.  It has been a while since I have blogged but I wanted to stop in and share this card kit, which my sister and I put together for our shop, with you.  

I really enjoyed making these cards and love the quirky sentiments.  We even gave up our beautiful stash of vintage buttons to pack up the kits. Our mother was also roped into this kit and spent hours crocheting blossoms (more than 100 of them) for us.  

My mom is trying to teach my sister and I to crochet but I have to admit that it is not going too well for me.  I can barely get past making a chain and feel like I have 16 fingers on each hand with no comfortable way to hold everything.  Anyhow, I will persevere and hopefully one day I will be crocheting beautiful blankets for my own granchildren.  At least I have a good few years to learn before I become a grandma!

Winter is settling in here so hopefully more time indoors will mean more crafting.  In the meantime, my sister and I are kept so busy with projects and classes at the shop that I need to be content with that for now.

Thank you for stopping by.  Hopefully, I will be back soon.


  1. Really beautiful cards. Love the flowers your Mom made. Keep going with your crocheting - you'll get it. So glad when you post.

  2. Hi Sam! These cards are stunning! I love the vintage images and the soft colors. The crochet flowers are perfect--what a sweet Mom you have. Good to see you posting! ((hugs))

  3. How beautiful! The flowers are a perfect compliment to the images.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by and for your comment. Sam
