Treasury Tuesday

Treasured Tuesday Time!

This week's four cheerful treasuries are sure to brighten up any winter day.

The first is by Mary Louise of mlmxoxo.  Mary Louise designs and creates everything in her Boston studio. She operates on the basis of three principles: Form follows function. Less is more. God is in the details. These tenets are evident in her work. She offers pure wool felt items like the accessories cases pictured, as well as photographs of beautiful Lisbon.

Here is the colorful treasury she curated.

Renee Roberts of Flapdoodle Bags  says her sewing journey began in a home economics class in middle school.  Even though that experience was a bit of a nightmare, Renee eventually discovered quilting, which has become her passion.  She makes bags, like the one pictured, as well as accessories of all kinds.

And this is the clever treasury she made:

Nancy Tanguay of UniquelyNancy is also a quilter.  She has been sewing for 50 years, and has been a seamstress and costumer for over 20.   She says that she has so many ideas of what she wants to make, that she has a hard time deciding what to do next.  The double pinwheel quilt shown is one of my favorites in her shop.

Check out the sunshine treasury she put together:

Lastly, Bocko made this pretty teal treasury:

Since Bocko is a buyer only account, I don't know much about her, except that she likes to make treasuries.  As of last count, she has made 333 since last February.  You can see more of them here.

Thank you Mary Louise, Renee, Nancy, and Bocko for including one of my items in your treasuries.
