Sometimes it takes just a small thing to set the day right. 70 degrees today. That means...open windows...a refreshing breeze fluttering through the house...an extended walk with Fudge...lingering over the mail on the front porch...grilling dinner on the back porch. Even if it is just for a day...I'm making the most of it.
Thought I'd share what I've been collecting.
Most of them are from thrift stores or flea markets. I think I have 20 or so. They are all florals of some kind. A few have scalloped edges or are edged with delicate handwork. I think they are beautiful. I hope to use these in a quilt. I'm thinking of how to take something vintage and fragile looking and integrate it into something more modern and utilitarian.
This is one of my favorites.
I have been sewing just a bit. Continuing to add to the collection of pinwheels. Many more to go if this is going to be a quilt for my bed.
I showed my hubby the floral fabric....not a good reaction. He's so NOT a flower guy. I've been resigned to that over the years, but I thought I could sneak these in. Maybe not.
More pinwheel construction tonight. Hope the sun is shining where you are!
