Camp S’more Series: Camping Stool

I love a good staple project, they are satisfying because they are so quick to do. I’m aways on the lookout for foot and camping stools at flea markets and vintage fairs like the Country Living Fair. In fact, I’ve shown many audiences at those events how easy it is to recover these stools at those fairs during my oilcloth days! I picked up these up from a local vintage vendor a few years ago. I found a ton of vintage camping stools for sale on Etsy. I even found this stool that is exactly like my pair. Buying local is best, this way you can skip shipping and check the camping stool for studiness.

Sweet Revival Sewing Challenge

I’ve just been introduced to Ink and Arrow Fabrics in the last few months. I found the first fun print from them at my LQS, Quilting Adventures. A fat quarter of the Christmas Doors print from the Naughty or Nice collection had to come home with me. I made (OK, almost finished) a radiator cover out of it, that you can see on my Instagram feed here and here. Then the ladies from Wives of Whitewood asked me to be a part of the Sweet Rebellion Sewing Challenge blog hop.The Sweet Rebellion fabric line is designed by Felicia Gallo for Ink and Arrow Fabrics. Bee bold with these soft & pretty flowers mingling with sugar skulls and chains…In pinks, greys and black, it’s just a tad rebellious… a Sweet Rebellion by ©Felicia Gallo.
