Duck Pull Toy ~ Puppy Blanket & Pillow

I am such a novice on taking pictures. Since starting this blog...I just started using a camera. That should explain to you images that are too bright... and images that are too dark. I need to put on my "someday to do list" a photography class. I get a BIG kick each time I take a picture and download it to the computer. I know...I am easily amused. Anyway...I will work on my skills and hopefully we'll see some progress as time goes on! Below is the "Duck Pull Toy ~ Puppy Blanket & Pillow" part of The Vintage Inspired Collection by My Vintage Blankie. I designed this collection to look truly vintage and to look as if your grandmother or great grandmother could of lovingly crafted these pieces themselves. There are two other blanket designs in this collection and each blanket has matching accessories. ~amy

Fall is Peaking

The sun was just starting to break through the clouds this morning and I thought the way the sunlight was falling upon the colorful fall leaves looked beautiful. Here are a few shots I took from my home.

Here are some more pictures I took. Quite beautiful.

Baby Reindeer Christmas Stocking

Here is the finished design I made from the inspiration piece I previously posted of the ceramic baby deer. I think the embroidery came out cute. ~amy

Where Women Create. Where I Create.

Have you ever read the book Where Women Create? It's inspiring and the images are so beautiful. I love to see the space that inspires and brings a designer's concept into reality. Below are a few images taken from my work space. The work table is the heartbeat of this space. On side shelves covered with curtains on tension rods...stores supplies and the top offers an invaluable work surface. It measures a comfortable 37" high so no bending is required when working. Those scattered framed prints you see... are vintage bird prints I won at an auction. I put new matting and frames on them and now they are good to go. I have a total of 8 of these vintage beauties! I'll be sure to share more images of my studio with you in a later post. ~amy

Bunny, Bunny, Bunny

Here's a blanket I have been working on. I was thinking of doing it in blue and green also. I just do not feel this design is a "done deal" yet. It needs a little bit more of this and a little less of that. I've got a few more ideas. I'll keep you posted. ~amy
