Happy Monday.. grab a cup of tea ladies this may be a long one!! My husband decided to paint our powder room... baby blue. My house is all and I mean all earth tones...blacks, browns, mocha, grey.. my sewing room Burnt orange. I just don't do Blue. Its not that I don't like blue, I have blue clothes and blue things it's just not a colour I choose to live with. SOOooo I thought I'll make a wallhanging and tone down that blue. Worked all last weekend brown and blue log cabin, quilted it, bound it, but then before the handsewing I thought I should step back and get a clearer look...OMG... it looks like a mad owl or one of those crazy tree faces!!!! Take a look.. but I'm listening for the laughter LOL!!! Sooo plan B... I made a black bargello for my daughter a while ago and had a piece of the strip set left over. I put it on the shelf, it would be on the floor, I put on the ironing board it would be on the floor. I've been kicking it around for a couple of years so I thought this was a sign. I'm supposed to do something with this so I did. I cut it up and bargelloed it, added some black.. then some red... then some yarn and flowers and beads and buttons and sequins and OMG I got carried away!!! The buttons by the way are from DH grandmothers button box.. so old that most are made from seashells!!! Now I have two wallhangings that don't go with blue though I rather like the black one it doesn't fit anywhere in this house....so plan C... I don't have a plan C ...yet... but I'm sure something will come to me!!! That blue is not gonna beat me... I am a quilter!!!! The pictures are backwards but this way you'll have the last laugh!!!
