I have a nice big window in front of my 1956 Singer 99 machine. Every day I see God's wonderful creations as I sew. No matter what the season, I see something beautiful!

Marilee said...

What a clever ornament. I'm inspired by the shelves of my fabric collection.

carla said...

HI!!! Very pretty purse!!!! I have really big jars of scrap fabrics!!! I love all the colors all mixed up!!! Thanks for the fun give away!!!!

Susan said...

What a nice idea. I have used apothecary or Mason jars to display fabric scraps, and this is a really cute alternative!

Dejnen said...

I have a porcellain figurine of a baby boy, my grandmother bought it in 1904 a the local grocershop.

Joan said...

I have an apothecary-type jar that holds my basting pins. But it's no ordinary jar -- it's emblazoned with a large Atlanta Braves logo. Yay for spring training! :)

Joan and Kevin said...

I have a bakers rack with all my fabric folded on it!
Thanks!

I have a white felt design wall just to the right of the sewing table. A QIP is on the felt and along the bottom are several photo ideas for the future. Just on the other side of the window in front of the sewing machine is forsythia bush which is which a stopping spot for sparrows and sometimes a lady cardinal. I watch them now while there are no leaves, later I won't be able to see them very well.

I always love little things like this purse and pretty things to look at. In my sewing room there are little photos of my cats, a very very little table-top dresser with tiny drawers, and little baskets.
Thanks for the end-of-winter-giveaway.




JoAnne said...

That is so cute! Please enter me to win! I'd fill it with selvages.

Mary W Quilts said...

That is sew cute. I have lots of fabric in my sewing room to inspire me, but doesn't everyone?

Dolores said...

For inspiration I have a small magnet board that I put up photos and on another wall I have lovely piece of upholstery fabric that I pin photos and magazine pictures on.
I love the little purse ornament.

This little purse is so cute! I have several canning jars with buttons in them and several more filled with old wooden spools (some with thread on them). These sit on a shelf with an old non-electric iron. Thanks for the giveaway.

Oh this little purse is so cute. I am a purse nut and this little one is adorable. I have glass jars with my scraps in them by color for inspiration and incentive to use up my scraps. Thanks for the chance to win

How cute is that? I have some glass jars with yoyo's, perle cotton, and embroidery floss. I've got a clothes line with mug rugs and mini quilts from swaps, too. I love it!

I have a 7' x 8' design wall that I use for hanging all sorts of items I collect including inspirational pictures and bits. I do have another design wall that is 8' x 8' that I try to keep for just quilt designing.

Needled Mom said...

That is so sweet. I have a GIANT pair of scissors in my sewing room that serve no purpose.

Sarah said...

I have a plaque from when I won a category prize in our quilting guild. kethry_24(at)yahoo.com

On top of my bookcase that holds fabric and patterns, I have an old medal model tractor that was my dad's. Since i no longer have him, and the wound is still fresh (is it going to be always?), it makes me happy.

Thank you for the fun treat!

My jars of buttons connect me with my mom who died almost 40 years ago when I was 19… As a child, I loved sorting my mom's buttons, many of which I'm now enjoying as a reminder of her. :D

Alice Ronne said...

My inspiration is volunteering in a kindergarten class teaching art projects that are created in a "non-judgmental" environment. Amazing the imaginations these little ones have and how colorful their pieces can be!

Kathryn said...

I have a poster from our local art museum that had a quilt exhibit back in the 1970s. It inspired me to start quilting and keep quilting.

Susan Dougill said...

I have the first ever pincushion I sewed. It's out of shape and the sewing is all over the place but it reminds me you can achieve anything if you try.

My design wall is my inspiration

I have several things that I really like in my sewing room. One is my (now deceased) Mom's old sewing basket that still has her threads, needles and stuff in it. I think of how she would make us all kinds of lovely and practical things when we were kids. Another thing I have is a small magnet a friend gave me that says "I tried being normal once. It was the worst two minutes of my life!" It reminds me not to be so serious about stuff and life in general.

GranChris said...

I made Riley Blakes Pincushion out of a nut can that looks like a chair. So cute. I love it.

ana s. said...

I have a pack of batiks with the ribbon still around them to inspire me with their colors.

Quilt Bug said...

Darling little purse. My main inspiration comes from my fabric - sorted by color with separate sections for striped fabric, children's fabric and Christmas fabric. respond to sandy dot call at usa dot net. Thanks for the opportunity to win this cute little purse.

LCP said...

My quilting books filled with eye candy inspire me along with my scraps and thread rack.

pippirose said...

How adorable!
I have a Raggedy Ann collection, along with vintage linens and doilies displayed on an antique (open)steamer trunk.

Love that little purse. Too sweet! I have a dress form covered in beautiful antique brooches that I've been collecting for several years. Lots are sewing related - and they come in all colors and sizes. Just a very happy place to lose your thoughts in and it inspires me to put colors together that I wouldn't ordinarily think about.

What a cute little purse! Right now I have a wall hanging designed by my 6 year old granddaughter (2 years ago) that I am supposed to be quilting. I just love looking at it. Thanks for the giveaway!

Jan said...

For decoration and inspiration I have glass jars full of buttons, a jar full of buttons and knitting needles and old kitchen scales display some of my pincushions. I love to look at them and the practical aspect is that I can see what I've got so don't have to go hunting. What a lovely giveaway.

Debbie said...

How adorable, Karen! I have a laminated poster of bobbin lace hanging on a closet door. I also have some colorful upholstery samples hanging on a rod.

Kaufmann Krew said...

bets said...

I have 2 quilts...my very first one that I hand quilted and love to remind me how much work I put into quilting it! Now I machine quilt all my projects so this is a special quilt indeed! Leave all my jelly rolls out...hoping to find an inspiration for quilting them! Nice giveaway!

Carol said...

I have lots of decorations and momentos in my large sewing room. First comes to mind is a photo of my grandmother who inspires me every day. I have photos of grandchildren in unusual frames, old buttons of my mother, pin cushions made by friends, sewing related decor from friends (a ceramic tile from Alaska in a quilt motif for example), another grandmother's travel case filled with cards I have received, children's quilt story books, a college picture of my father, fabrics from 2 Australian women I met at the Houston Festival one year--the list goes on!
