Wednesday, May 30



I finished this little quilt over the weekend. It's just about 18" square. This one I'm keeping. It really is about time I keep one, I think. I hung it high up on the wall, above the hutch in the dining room (I still need to paint that thing!). I've had it in the back of my mind for a while now that a little something was needed up there. This fit the bill perfectly.


Today I'm trying to put the house back together from the long weekend. It's amazing how quickly chaos ensues! I should have it all back to normal sometime tonight. Which is good because we'll have a houseful of friends tomorrow. Fun!

I had many people (most are people I couldn't respond to via email) ask me just how I made my new banner. It's just a photo I took that I cropped to be short and wide. I had to play with the sizing a bit to get it just right. I had left it too large at first. And my photo program lets me add text to the picture. So it was just as easy as that!

Hello dannielle, I took a look in your etsy shop & was interested to buy a tea cosy and an earring, But do you ship to Europe? Or are you interested to swap something with me? (or how do you call this? ) To Europe? Belgium?
Bye
Danielle

Great little quilt! But I REALLY love your new banner! I was messing around with mine recently, but I wasn't having much luck so I gave up! You've inspired me to try again.
