color a winterday

Evening all. How was your first day of the week?
It's been a dark drizzly day here.
Therefor.......
I desperatly could use some color.
Like these red tulips on my kitchen counter,
i brought home with me from the grocery shop.
red and white tulips on my kitchen counter
I had a day of from work so..
i cut these pretty fabrics in stripes and then
placed myself behind the sewing machine.
Kaffe Fassett fabrics
to sew blocks.

such a fun job to do on a cold drizzly day like today
I saw this beautiful quilt here that inspired me.

I think it looks wonderful so far.
The colors certainly make me smile.

  7. Zo daar wordt je zeker vrolijk van Corrie, wawt een geweldige stofjes heb je gebruikt zeg.
    Ik ben begonnen met een poppetje uit een oudere homespun, en ik heb ook hele gezellige stofjes daarvoor gebruikt. Het weer werkt niet zo mee, maar wij brengen zelf wel kleur aan onze dagen op deze manier.
