The kids got to go see their grandma last weekend, and I was all by myself for most of Friday.
I woke up, knew Jay would be going to work, and thought to myself, "I can do whatever I want today."
That "whatever I want," turned in to turning those low volume squares I cut previously in to some background blocks, and getting started on what would become these. (All while watching a Harry Potter marathon -- not sure what it says about me that all I wanted to do for my free time was some scrappy sewing and HP watching).
There are twenty-five of them.
The colors, from the top left and snaking through the rows (and yes, I had fun naming them):
wine, red, cerise, hot pink, candy pink, pink, peachy coral (x2), tangerine, orange, goldenrod, sunshine yellow, mustard yellow, lime green, kelly green, mint green, ice blue, aqua, teal, blue, periwinkle, lavender, mauve, grape, and plum.
Oh I have such a crush on them. They will be combined with some low volume prints and make me happy.
Though you should see the mess of stash I have to fold and organize now! Ufta! (Not to mention the big pile of laundry that was neglected, but that's fairly normal around here unfortunately).
You can see up close pictures of most of them in my flickr set.
I also got a little more fabric.
I have a big crush on this new line, The Sweet Life, from Cori Dantini (for Blend fabrics.) I got my prints from Theresa at The Meandering Thread. (There's also a Collage print that snuck in at the bottom of the stack).
They're so artsy and pretty. And have great panels. (You can find them here.)
I need to think of something to do with them. :)
Winner of the Roundhouse template and magazine is Diane! (I'll need your address)
And linking to Lee's!
(And one more cute picture, just for fun. The little man and little miss were watching Scooby Doo together) ♥
Big crushes I tell you.
