During my visit to the Beistle company in October I did manage to see a few Valentines items in the archives. We started finding the Valentine & Spring stuff near the end of our visit, so sadly I don’t have too much to share. I am hoping in the future to see reproduction Valentine & Easter added to the Vintage Beistle line because they have so many good things!
The last couple of photos were hand drawn mock-ups, which were my favorite things to find inside the archives.
You can take a look back at Halloween here, and here…and Christmas here.

I’ve been working on some new repeat patterns in similar color combinations. The cat-crazy patterns are because my youngest son is cat crazy and wants to have a cat-themed birthday party this year. I thought I could sew him up a couple of cat pillows for his bed.
Then I started making a Goldilocks & The Three Bears repeat, which started with a house, which then turned into many houses. Maybe I’ll go back to Goldilocks but for now I had fun making the houses. Once proofed these designs will be available here.
