thanks for your patience during my brief hiatus. most of what i needed to do is done, so have some breathing room AND blogging time. did manage to keep up with my stars sew-along....bottom row madders and top row indigos. see the top left blue star? the background fabric with the yellow roses is one of my very faves. i bought 3 yards, unheard of for me, back before 2000 or so at the old fabric place in woburn, massachusetts. they were a lovely fabric store meaning FABRIC....no crafty crap like you-know-who. one could buy very nice garment fabrics of all types, drapery and slipcover fabrics and plenty of cottons. they had delish remnant bins that were often large pieces, hence the 3 yards of this lovely print. this was eons before the repro bug bit me, but i just loved the fabric and have used it in several things....so happy to have some left for this project. *** while i was gone coping with various things, not the least of which was a horrific february, winter finally gave up the ghost. the feeling and smell of spring is everywhere and though it'll be a while before the snow all melts, it is inevitable. we know it's spring when dairy queen opens for the season....lol!
