A couple goodies to show you today! I've been cleaning..and when that happens, you know how easy it is to get sidetracked when you find things, and INSPIRATION HITS you like a MAC truck... (always when you should be doing something else!)
Kathie had sent me this block months back, and I worked very quickly on it, adding bits and pieces here and there,and then I got stuck. So I put it away for a bit and would pull it out every now and then to see if anything light bulb would go off.
Today it all came together. I dug out my reds, and a bit of BLUE and wee scrap of pink, the yellows and it all came together lickety split! Love that!
I also dug out some vintage orphans that I may add on here... Not sure I'm 100% done but I like where it's at right now. I may still do a bit more playing....
Then Thomas Knauer sent down some of his new line to play with, called FLOCK for Andover... You can see more of his lines here. I jumped in to play...
I took off running on the theme FLOCK, and decided to try the birds in the air block.
I grabbed some minty GINGHAM shirting fabric to set the blocks....
Gingham, I love gingham and think it's very under used these days.... so sweet!
It's not pressed yet in this picture, because I was, at the time I took this making a new IRONING BOARD,from an old falling apart IKEA cabinet I had....
Take the door, wrap it in Batting, staple it down and wrap in Fabric of your choice!
It was the perfect size to lay across my file cabinets that are always in the way! So I can sew, turn to the right, and press.... easy peasy!
Now, I gotta get this place clean...Jackie is coming down in a few hours!
