Happy Color things and my latest story quilt in the works (thank you Timeless Treasures!)
So I spent part of last night when I couldn't sleep looking at dishes (one of my all time favorite things) and I found this pretty Scottish tea cup-LOVE an idea of a kitchen full of these! And wallpaper in a kids room too!
If you don't belong to my chatroom on yahoogroups (Marylouweidman) then you missed the wonderful ornament swap to make a Christmas tree with once you get the blocks you swapped-WONDERFUL stuff and everyone will have a great tree next year. I am going to design a new ornament swap for next year for this summer. To meet nice girls from all over, come and join the fun and the friendships.
I was looking at the piece above and thinking how much some black and white fabric can make the difference in something good and something fabulous- I love this!
I got a box of fabrics from Timeless treasures to work with and I bought some more and I decided that I wanted to do a story about my daughter when she was five and her girlfriend and their lemonade stand. It was fun seeing the two of them so excited over $4.30. They are still great friends today. I am putting another border around the outside and getting it quilted and adding eyes for the animals (buttons) and other fun details. I have changed the faces to be smaller since I took this photo.
