Several years ago Amelia had a painting project with her preschoolers that was so much fun, we former (a long time ago) preschoolers wanted to try it as well. We set up the dining room table with newspapers, brought out the paints and all the kitchen gadgets and empty spools and what ever we thought might be great for printing. By the end of the day, I had printed fabric and no idea what to do with it. The Otterbees tried it as well. And then the fabric sat there, gathering dust and waiting for inspiration.
Inspiration came last month and in between other ideas, I have put together the beginning of the painted
I was also waiting for the rest of my Christmas fabric order to come and finally it did. So I had to work on that as well.
The Otterbees will be here on Wednesday. They will search my design wall for the “quilt” that was on the wall last week and it won’t be there. With everything else I want to try, that one got put into a box and might even make it to the throw away bin.
Such is my very busy quilting/retired life…. and I like it.
Just keep me away from my stash in the basement til I finish what is lying around in my sewing room.
