I really liked the combination of the aqua and orange.....

Chalk Paint Giveaway

There is a giveaway at My Wonderfully Made for a chance to win Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint....this paint
is wonderful..everyone is raving about it...head on over and join the giveaway....

Transformation

I love surfing the web to see and learn what people are doing...It amazes me how many talented people there are in this world and the internet reveals it to everyone....
Recently, I came upon Heaven's Walk blog where I found this
technique Laurie did.....
the graphic came from The Graphics Fairy where you can find
a wonderful assortment of vintage images and crafty projects...
After reading the how-to on Heaven's Walk I decided to look
for a graphic on The Graphics Fairy.....
I have had these 2 crock jugs for a long time and wanted to
try my hand at this technique....


I chose two different graphics and this is
how they turned out.....


it actually makes the jugs look older and the one jug has
the label scratched off somewhat to give it that
aged look....
I know I will be doing this technique again.....
It is addicting......

Dresden Plate


I have made my first Dresden Plate....I have a glass-top table and wanted to put
something between the base and the glass and I thought I could make a Dresden Plate....it is 32 inches wide.... the walls are a light green so I decided to use the light green and pink and put the deeper pink in the center...I am very happy with it.....sorry about the glare....

Red, White and Blue Scraps

I have quite a few scraps left over from a patriotic quilt
I made some years back, actually, it was my first foundation
piece quilt...I really enjoyed sewing that together...
but now I have so many scraps that I decided to make a
string quilt...I have seen so many of the quilters that have
made a string quilt and now I am going to sew one..what
a great idea on how to use up all of your scraps....
I have been putting the blocks together..
I am sewing 6.5 inch blocks which will be 6 inches when sewn...
I have to make a small block since my scraps are not that
long...they were precut for the quilt I made...
I hope that I have enough to make a lap quilt...
I may have to add sashing and a few borders...
I also have a star that is made from 4 of the blocks
from the original quilt and I thought I could use
that as well....
I will have to see how this turns out....
wish me luck...LOL...
