I purchased this Alexander Henry fabric last January when I was in the initial stages of stash building. I loved it for lots of reasons. It has a bit of diversity, the women exude strength and confidence and the colors are fab. It took me a long 6 months to figure out how to use this in a quilt. I saw the Michael Miller "button up" fabric and knew they belonged together. I fussy cut the "fashionista" to highlight the women and some of the clothes and accessories and framed them with kona snow and the buttons. I love how the top came together. This is for a very "fashionable" friend of mine for Christmas. I can't wait to quilt it.
Since it's Friday I'm due for a fitness report. Pretty good this week. I made it to the gym 4 out of 5 days and had some pretty good runs. I did 1.75 miles for the first time this week. The receptionist at my gym also said how good I was looking. I almost fell over. She said she really sees a difference. Now that made my day!
It's raining and cloudy again...dang it affects my mood. Could really use a bit of sunshine. Looking forward to my hubby coming home and a good weekend. Have a good one!
