Lately I find myself browsing through thrift shops in search of fabric more often than I shop at my local fabric store. I have fallen in love with the feel and look of vintage sheets which take on a faded appearance and a silky softness from repeated washings. These sheets have been up-cycled into practical aprons, functional tea cozies, festive buntings and the most romantic of quilts. But my latest use for quilts was this picnic set. How cute is this??
You can have a picnic anywhere and at any time of year. Spread a quilt, unpack a basket full of thrift shop find dishes, unfold a napkin, even hang a bunting, and a simple picnic becomes a memorable event!!
I love to spend time traveling or cooking with my husband or being with our grandsons. Whenever I have the chance I sew or I bird. If I can sew using a fabric that has a bird depicted on it, my life's complete!!
