perfect storm sewing
when 3 elements collide, it's a perfect storm...we all saw that movie right? sadly, george clooney wasn't one of those elements....but i digress. there were those leftover daydreams scraps staring at me, then a dynamite project idea presented itself, and then there was time with phoebe and voila! cabana chevrons! aren't they cute? yes, i think so too. of course this is just the start; finish comes later...what else is new, but not too much later, i promise, and i'll show you all too. **** meanwhile still basking in the glow of that big finish, thinking about summer being nearly at the halfway point, excited for plans for the remainder. and lest you be worried, i have PLENTY more daydreams scraps to tantalize and tempt me for some other pretty little things to make. those 2 layer cakes were a terrific investment, and anxious to see how many things i can make from them besides cabana daydreams. **** with these fabrics, my creative muse is veering off in a new direction of mod style quilting and fabrics. i haven't abandoned my civil war fabric devotion, but i find myself drawn more and more to mod fabric designers and their wow colors. it isn't the prints themselves but the glorious colors that make my muse's juices sizzle. how about you? has your quilty focus changed? i'll be interested in your comments along that line. ***** we did go to the beach today but it was quite windy and gray clouds were gathering, so instead headed for our favorite summer veggie stand and picked up our first fresh corn, cukes, peppers, summer squash, parsley and a fat tomato for the season. the corn and cukes were delish and off to get out those summer veggie recipes!
