Original Folk Art Painting Thimbles 'n Threads by Catherine Holman

In the last couple years my new hobby, quilting, has become a big part of my life.  I won't say I'm that great at it, but I do love it!  I also love that my daughter, Amber, and daughter in law, Bonnie love to come over and sew with me.  We are learning together.  I wish my mother was still here to join us and give us some tips.  She was a great seamstress making wedding and prom gowns for women in our area.   She also worked in a sewing factory locally in our small town.  My mother made all my clothes when I was little too.  There's just something about sewing the brings up so many fond memories.   

With all that being said, I just finished this 8" x 10" painting and have listed it in my Etsy Shop.

Emily who has been sewing since she was 10 has finally opened her new quilt shop, Thimbles 'n Threads. Her grandma, Kate, taught her how to sew. Each and every stitch brings back so many wonderful memories of her grandma guiding her through every stage of making her first quilt. The shop cat, Cleo, greets the customers from her perch in the window as they come through the door.

This painting can be personalized with your first name painted on the black sewing machine sign between the two windows.

Now I'm off to work on a new quilt!
