and we have completion!
Thangles certainly made easier work of the half square triangles!
I'm so pleased with the way this turned out....
Just as I envisioned! I spied an antique quilt in a book, and that was my inspiration.
I think the black print really adds to the vintage look I was going for!
The week was a short one, but one wouldn't know it! Seemed to drag on! But I did do a little thrifting. I'm really lovin' the hunt! So much so that I think I may start a 'Thrifty Thursday' post to show finds for the week! I don't want to bore you every other day with the latest piece of orphaned pottery...so once a week I'll share!
I don't think I ever showed this great framed bird print I scored for three bucks. I love the aged look it has....that black..and green...and the birds.
Yes sir I love the hunt AND the find! ;o) A dear friend of mine---Blogless Kimm (Hi Kimm!) and I are going to head down to Omaha in a few weeks. So excited...we're meeting up with Paulette and having a great girls day! In search of treasure we shall be!
Now Paulette and I have been great friends for...oh....at least 4 years. We've shared tears...laughs....LOTS of laughs....chatted on the phone...and have taken FULL advantage of internet communication, as well as Blackberry IMing...but we have NEVER ... EVER met face to face! Can you believe that? And we only live 3 hours away! Seems like when she would be up here for a cheer comp, I'd be out of town...it just never worked out! So I'm excited for the trip to Omaha! And I'm sure it will provide plenty of blog fodder! LOL Always good to have something to look forward to!
This evening I went down and prepped the next quilt.....yes....another one...so soon...
This one will be quick...simple....letting the fabrics speak...I'm using those wonderfully textural wovens I picked up a while back from my pal, Twyla!
Quick is good...because look what else I got this week! Yummy wool from Alice!!
I've got a plan for this! A hooker I shall be!!! Woooohooo! So I want to get this wovens quilt done so I can toss a rug pattern on the frame that's been patiently waiting and start my hooking journey!
So many fiber arts....so little time! I hope you've had a great weekend! I'm going to curl up with Ann for a bit and stitch and enjoy the rest of the evening!
