While I was in Florida over the holidays I went fabric shopping at the LQS (I know, shock, right?). At first nothing grabbed my eye, but then I saw this:
Gold and yellow are totally outside of my comfort zone, so I walked away from it a couple of times, But I kept coming back to it. It spoke to me. So I picked it up. It spoke to me some more. It said it had some friends that wanted to go, too. I just had to find them. So after much searching and adding and subtracting, here are the friends that wanted to come, too.
Originally, just the green and yellow friends came home to play. But there was some yelling and screaming and crying that they needed some of their purple friends. So a couple of days later, we went back to the LQS and found the purple friends.
No, the original inspiration fabric is NOT in the rainbow of colors. He said that because he's so special, he needed a special place. We negotiated and decided that he could be the main border.
I'm using the tube method and am ready for the tube seam on the first quarter panel. When I have that together, I'll take a picture and post it for you.
On a totally different front, I am keeping an eye on something I'm trying in the oven. DD and I are going to a Super Bowl party next weekend, so I'm testing an appetizer recipe. Its not too hard: bacon wrapped water chestnuts. They're in the oven and will be ready in about 15 minutes. I'll take a picture, but you'll have to wait until the next post to see it and find out how they turn out.
Have a great evening!
