Friday Pretties

Today, for Friday Pretties, I am calling this "The Beauty of Ordinary Things".  I love being in my sewing room and tried to capture the beauty of the things I see and use.  When you look through your camera lens you often can see an object quite differently and I challenge you to do the same.  It's fun!

Aunt Gracie fabrics make me smile

This iron is pink, surprisingly enough!

Oh to meet the lovely lady that embroidered this apron...

Quilt binding in "Hunky Dory"

This caddy is never far from my hands

I want to unroll it, but I just can't, too pretty!

I wonder how many times my hands have held these items?

My current project

For more Friday Pretties, visit Joyce at I Love Pretty Little Things!

With joy,
