So the other day I wrote a post about a crazy inspiration to make heart shaped
Log Cabin blocks.
Here is one of the first blocks . . .
I made 4 with just random scraps.
And then my mind did what it usually does and I had this idea to do them in all pink . . .
Love them! I'm not completely happy with the white so I've stopped. That is how I roll.
I end up changing projects mid stream. Or should I say mid stitch. HeHe.
But while I was working on the blocks I noticed that I had all these fabulous little teeny tiny scraps.
And I couldn't part with them so. I did this . . .
This isn't a great pic. I actually had it attached in the middle of the mantle but I wanted you to see the
lights showing through so I took it down.
Here's a closer shot . . .
I started this on Friday. Our dinner was on Sunday. I didn't get it as thick as I wanted but it looked good.
Here you can see parts of the string of lights not attached. I took the fabric off for you to see.
My lights were 3 times as long as the mantle. So I attached to both ends and then laid them back across the mantle until I had the entire length attached.
I had already tied about 1/4 of the length so then I just went down my shorter measured length and started tieing on more strips
I love how it turned out. It really added to this garland I did a couple of years ago . . .
Here's a shot of the entire mantle . . .
I put the mantle together for a Valentines Day Dinner click Here to see that post.
And now back to how I roll and what I'm doing in the sewing room because I'm not super happy with that white fabric. I'm going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to see what I might find.
I saw this today at Red Pepper Quilts . . .
And I was inspired to try and use up all those 5" squares I have cut. Here are a few of the squares I'm working with . . .
I have a 3 stacks of reds and navys. And about that many or more of pastels.
I am so totally stepping out of my comfort zone here. Putting reds, navys, pinks, greens, yellows together.
But if my quilt looks anything like this . . .
I'll be super happy. Did you notice the mix of not only colors but the mix of theme?
I'm steppin' out!
In my slippers that I found!
I hope you have a Happy Day whatever your doing!
