Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Movin on over to Bloglovin

Color inspiration and Chickens

I love color all different colors. My stash is like a very large box of crayons or paints. It is the medium of my art. Color occurring in nature is what inspires me. I have more pictures of flowers, trees, and anything else that catches my eye, than I could ever use. Here is one of my most recent pictures that is pushing me to get some unfinished projects done so I can use these colors in a new project.
We have friends that have chickens and these are some of their eggs. This picture does not do the colors justice. There are some lovely bluegreen eggs, different colors of brown and brown with a darker brown speckle. They were so pretty it was hard to crack those lovely shells and use them, but we did. Such fresh eggs are also hard to resist.
These colors are the inspiration for my next big project and I think I will enjoy hunting out fabrics to match the lovely eggs as well as designing a quilt to bind it all together.
Today I plan to put the backing on my March project for A Lovely Year of Finishes. It just might make the finish line this month! Wouldn't that be lovely?
Hope your day is filled with creativity,

March Project for A Lovely Year of Finishes


This year is passing by so quickly. I worked on my January project but no finish, sad face. I worked on my February project but no finish, sad face and a sigh. But I did get each of them farther than they were and I also made three bridesmaid dresses that were a finish! making the bride and bridesmaids happy. Now it is March and this is my get finished project for this month.
This is a disappearing nine patch made in thirties fabrics which I love. It is all pieced and ready to be quilted. It has been waiting around for about nine months so it is time to get it done. I am going to free motion quilt it on my regular machine. It will be good practice and I actually find it quite addicting. So, with a bit of excitement on actually finishing something, wish me well in actually getting this one done!

Be sure and check out what everyone else is finishing up by checking out the flickr group.
Wishing you a finish for March,

44th Strees Fabric Give-away

Sometimes I think I love fabric a bit too much but it is better for me than eating chocolate and just as satisfying. The fabric has no discernible calories therefore no calorie guilt, and for me fabric does not give me migraines when I cheat and have some. Therefore, for me it's a double win!

The only thing better than more fabric is a fabric give-away and there is a great one going on at 44th Street Fabric, so jump on over there and check it

It is a warm sunny day so I am going out for a bit of gardening. What are you doing this fine afternoon?
