Mixed Media Monday Challenge: Vintage Ads and Labels

My piece this week for the MMM Challenge of Vintage Ads and Labels is a small  wall piece of layered fabrics. The starch ad is pinned to the fabric, and the small embellishment is acutally a Singer Sewing Machine tin emblem which unfortunately did not photograph very well!

I've sort of continued on with the organic, heavily textured pieces that I have done the last few weeks with the MMM Challenges.

This was a fun challenge! Thanks, Rosie!

It is another rainy day here in Minnesota, and so I am planning a full afternoon of stitching.  I am almost done with Fall Meditation of the miniature mandala group, and I think this my favorite so far. Might be due to the fact that Fall is my favorite season!


  1. This neat piece jogged my memory, and I remembered my mother making her own starch and adding a touch of "bluing" to make the whites whiter. Thanks for my trip down memory lane!
