It is impossible to take good photos before I go to work. My contacts are floating around like crazy and there is nill for light. Unless I rush home after work, I still don't have much light to work with (and I hate flashes). Anyway, as you can tell I am super eager for summer to be here. I would love to see the sun on a regular basis and think it would be great if some of the brown snow would melt so that I could see what is green and grows beneath it.
Anyway, all that complaining is because I really wanted to show you a nice photo of this mini quilt made from scraps. But this is all I got.
I am going to start hand sewing my bindings because they really come out bad doing it on the machine. My mom was recently giving me some blind stitch tips and I think that is going to help.
On my mission to use scraps, I've decided to give myself a tacky novelty fabric challenge. Yup, I as I am sure many of you, have somehow purchased (eek) tacky novelty fabric. I was very close to throwing it out the other day when I though better of it. Instead, I am going to challenge myself to come up with something interesting with it. So here is the little devil fabric.
I scored these little cupcake toppers from this etsy shop. Her cupcake toppers are all so amazing. Even though I have a huge (really hug) bag of vintage toppers that I found at the dump I couldn't resist these.
