OK, I have finished several UFO's, still have lots left, but I am interested in a new project for a bit of a change.
I ordered some fabric about a week ago. It is William Morris themed. I have always loved the old ornate appliqué pieces and this fabric just grabbed me up and said I had to start a project with it.
It included some light prints.
I had some background prints as well, I think the middle one is my favorite.
And a couple more prints from my stash. Not sure about the center one on these prints, but you can never tell until you get into a project what might work.
So I dug this book out of the closet and I am thinking to start a small wall hanging project.
I have my quilting buddy all ready to give me a hand. She has a nice cushy dog bed on the other side of the room, but she often prefers to settle in on one of the unfinished projects. For some reason this particular item has caught her fancy.
This is my youngest daughter, the one with all the chickens, peacocks and ducks. Her husband asked her what she would like for Mother's Day. A flame thrower, go figure! Weed control out in the country, and her farmer neighbor told her it is much better than spraying weed killer. She says it works great, and much easier and faster than spraying too.
all that fabric and only ONE small wall quilt? lol...they are all so very lovely...drooling hereReplyDelete
The William Morris fabrics and patterns have always intrigued me. Look forward to seeing what you create.ReplyDelete
The fabric pull is gorgeous!!! Can't wait to see what you come up with. I love the flame thrower!!!ReplyDelete
I have been hoarding some WM fabric for a while now. Can't settle on what to make and cut into them. I have Michele's book too and ogle it from time to time. Way to go with getting in there and making something!ReplyDelete
lovely fabrics...so you!!ReplyDelete
love Jaci's gift too...so funny this transformation...to country life!
Hi Donnalee! A flame thrower! Well, isn't that just so clever and environmentally friendly, too. I can totally understand the need for a new project. After you get that behind you or at least well started, it is easier to return to an older project. At least, that works for me. Thanks for linking up this week. ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
Aw on the pup. What a cutie pie.ReplyDelete
I laughed about the flame thrower. You daughter rocks.

Chickens, peacocks, ducks and now a flame thrower! What a gal! Does she know that her animal antics keep us entertained, all over the world, even down here in New Zealand. Do hope she doesn't mind.ReplyDelete
Your WM fabric is lovely, I haven't worked with anything like that yet. And there's certainly nothing wrong with starting a new project or two.
A flame thrower for Mother's Day...wow...each to their own, I suppose. =) Those William Morris fabrics are beautiful. They are going to look beautiful all together in a wall hanging.ReplyDelete
