Someday..................


Here is what I was working on about two weeks ago. It was going really well but somehow I have gotten away from it and having a really hard time getting back to it. Its a Patrick Lose pattern that I got off the Timeless Treasures website. He has his own fabric line to go with it but this isn't it. There are several other colors and it goes in a graduated row. I wanted to see if I could match his colors with my own................a lesson in color and texture. So hopefully I will get back there soon. I need to redo the orange blocks (not shown) because they are too light and just don't hold up well with the other colors. Then I need to buy the yellow fabric because anything I have is just a little too light or a little too intense. Just need to get up off my duff and do it!!! (of course I need to clean in the sewing/spare room first so I can find the machine!)
Gratitudes:
A cool morning so the kids and I could go to the park and have our breakfast.
A dividend check from the insurance company that was unexpected

Oh, these are nice! Will there be black sashing or black in the borders?

I'm enjoying your blog immensely.

There is black sashing and a supposed to be black border but I think I want to make it a little bigger than the pattern and might add some color to the border. This one is a real stretch for me!

Thank you so much for stopping by here.........means a lot!
