(found on the internet)
I was fine when I left the house and the weather was descent, however, while I was in the church the front came through with cold and more rain. I made a couple of stops and went home. By Friday evening, I was sneezing. It was a miserable weekend.
Thursday evening, I began working on my spring row blocks.
I'm calling it a modified churn dash. And I've decided to get creative with the row. The pattern calls for watering cans and daisies to be appliqued on these blocks. But I like my blocks so much that I don't want to cover them in any way.
The row has seven blocks total. I'm making four of the churn dash and three of watering cans . . .
(designs for patterns found on the internet)
The "tulip" can will be the center block and the "frogs" will be blocks two and six :)
I have hand appliquing to do before I sew the rows together.
I also chose my own watering cans, not that the ones included weren't cute too. I just have my own thoughts and decided this was a good month to be rebellious :)
I have a small finish for October as well.
These little jars I recycled are bottled lattes. The labels are shrink wrapped and come off beautifully without any glue residues. I found the idea on Pinterest.
All I did was cute burlap to the desired size, used double sided tape to hold in place until I could tie on the ribbons. I trimmed the ends and whala . . . an adorable little vase. I'm going to give one to BF on Thursday with some fresh flowers for her birthday.
I have a new display jar :)
Unfortunately, the widow across the street passed away recently and the children are cleaning house. As soon as I saw the jar, I knew what I wanted it for - my wooden thread spool collection. I've been collecting these for several years (a lot of years) and finally have the correct vessel to display them. There were more, but I only chose this one. I have a feeling I'm going to be really sorry I didn't get the others. I'm absolutely thrilled with it.
It's time to start working on my applique.
Thanks for stopping by,
Wishing you a day filled with creativity.
