I DID IT!!!!

Remember this . . .

. . . all pretty and packaged . . .

It became this!

and then this . . .

. . . and then this . . .

. . . and then it all became this.
Now you'll just have to see where it goes and what it becomes. This was so much fun! . . . pulling that jelly roll all apart and playing with 40 different prints that all coordinate . . . if you'd told me this sooner . . . maybe . . . just maybe . . . I'd have done it sooner!
This is my little present to myself from the Fat Quarter Shop for the month of June. It's that time of the year to be thinking about Christmas and the whole getting ready for it thing. This beautiful grouping is "Peace on Earth" by 3 Sisters and MODA of course! Other than the colours being slightly Christmasy, the prints are not really, really geared towards the season - they could work elsewhere also, I'm thinkin'.

This is definitely not Christmas . . . little tiny Lily of the Valley blossoms . . . how dainty are these?!

And now I'll show you my true stripes - just kidding!

This is one of the petals on my Iris plant . . . I didn't know they were all stripey like that . . . look what you can find when you get up real close and personal with things. I also didn't know they were all furry like that either . . . who knew?

'til next time,
