Hi dear friends!
I had to take out happy blocks because the ‘potholder attitude’ started to take over. I wanted to make several potholders but nothing worked well. And what was wrong … it was the potholder attitude: it’s just a potholder which is going to get dirty and thrown away. I should be able to think that hey! it’s only fabric! Only?! Who says only?! Every scrap is unique and won’t come back ever again! (remember I don’t have acces to quilt shops here).
So fun to make these trees that as a tree lover, ther will surely bee many more! In fact first I made red/beige trees having potholders in my mind.
Then I made few houses.
Next try was to make flower pot. I draw the templates from Helen Philipp’s book: ‘Modern Vintage Gifts’. Read Helen’s lovely Christmas post!
I loke the flower but not the colours. I was thinking to make scrappy flower with happy colours – how I ended up with this?! Heart is also from Helen’s book.
This surely shows me what my main goal for the year 2017 should be: to find myself and my happy colours again!
And these! Time to continue Winding Ways with Kaffe Fassett; should be enough happy colours!
And after that I shall cnontinue these Grand Canal diamonds!
I have a feeling that year 2017 will be happier!
Thank you for stopping by! Are you joining ‘The Honey Pot Bee’? What about your colours – where your year happy or your wait next one to be happier year?
