Design Wall Monday - 4/25/11
Still working on the ladies -
Found some inspiration in my books and my stash - just need some wonky blocks -
and some fabrics -
Rats! - don't have enough of the purple - just need a fat quarter - bits and pieces might work -
(Should have asked mainer for some of her purple before she used it all on her purple scrap challenge - oh, well, too late!)
Oh, wait! Double-checked the stash - and found this (in the WRONG place) -
not quite a fat quarter - but close enough - this should work -
So - here's what I got -
I'm not liking the orange/brown in the wonky nine-patches or wonky strips -
and next to the purple/pink/orange batik on the left -
or the really light beige - in the wonky four patches in the lower left - and wonky strips -
too blah - blends in with the design wall - can't even see it -
So - trade those out for some more pinks and purples and oranges ??
Yeah - much better -
I like the lady on the light pink background -
and that wild orange/pink batik on the right -
OK - so now to "unsew" the light beige and the orange/brown - and replace it with new stuff.
I LOVE MY STASH!!
I collected for YEARS - always saving for SOMEDAY to make SOMETHING SPECIAL.
Well - guess what -
TODAY is SOMEDAY and this is SOMETHING SPECIAL!!
Besides - they say you might as well use your stash 'cuz when you die -
your husband's next wife is gonna sell it for a nickel a yard at a yard sale -
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta "unsew" -
