This year was a little late, for obvious reasons.
I've been in love with this peachy/strawberry/corally color lately... so I went with it.
|This was my first one -- I liked it, but something felt off.|
|This was #2 -- felt a little more balanced, but still not right.|
|This was #3 -- I finally figured out how to use the frame feature, but it was heavy to the left.|
|Ah -- shrink down the quilt blocks, balance out the photo size a bit -- ♥|
So what do you all think? (just tell me I picked the best one so I can get back to sewing)... ;)
I'll actually be doing other makeovers at home too.
Starting, I think, with this framed little window-box type thing that is painted a garrish gold. It will be going in Scarlet's room (after we put the wall in Steiger's new room)... I see Robin Egg's Blue perhaps.
Making over a baby girl's nursery is thrilling and scary at the same time; I'm just hoping my mom will give input... she's much better at this sort of thing than I am.
Anyone else like me? Great with fabric and not so much with decor???
I think this will be my inspiration...
|from Riley Blake's Marguerite line coming soon|
And we need to get the garden ready for planting... hmmm, this weekend is looking busy.
Oh! It's the hubs' 30th birthday today (yes, that does make me a cougar) ;)
I love that handsome bloke.
Happy Birthday Honey.
We are more grateful for you than you know.
(and y'all just have to see this picture of him from when he was little... you see where Steiger gets his good looks, no?) My mother-in-law says it's eerie sometimes when she's with Steiger, because it's like having little Jay all over again.
Thanks for passing those good genes on to our kiddos honey. ;) And Happy Birthday.
