It will be something to look forward to now - to see what everyone does with their blocks. I'm sure some will lay them out and enjoy them and maybe put them away until they have another day. Some of you will jump right in and have them done into a quilt or project in no time at all. Others will be rushing to get the blocks sewn in time to show at Christmas. I think it will all be fun. I'm most concerned that you are pleased with them.
In honor of Fabulous Fabric Friday I show you my fabric to build my cottage streets with. They don't really go together but maybe that is why I like them together. Whimsy and vintage. I think that is the perfect combination to describe my style.
I want to make a new blog header for our blog. I found this really fun border print bee fabric. Put that together with the hive Michele made for me and we'll see what happens. There is the bigger green and bee side on one end. The sign on the lawn says Buzzy the Bee or Bizzy the Bee. It probably is Buzzy but I like Bizzy.
Then the other side is so cute too. "Little Buzzy Bee Whither goest thou?" I like that. I'm not sure which end of the fabric will work best.
Right now is a good time to pick up fabric that you may have had an eye on or for a quilt you'd like to make soon. Prices are down on vintage fabric and everyday I get an e-mail of a fairly good sale for fabric online. I'm always on the look out for kitchen or teapot related vintage fabric. I don't drink tea or coffee but I'm passionate about the shape and gleam of the traditional cup, saucer and teapot. This is my favorite of the little tea scenes designed on the fabric.
This one is cute too, though. I love the colors. Dont you love the pepto pink and the turquoise blue with the touches of gray and white? Classic '50s.
There are little kitchen tools on it dancing around the teapots. The egg beater is my favorite. I bid for this fabric on ebay recently and got it for the base price. I didn't have to bid against anyone and the price was very reasonable for 1 1/2 yards- less than you'd pay for new fabric. I've got ideas 'ya know. Too many of them!
