I am doing a bunch of workshops in the fall teaching my 3D flowers and wanted to try some colours that I don't normally use. Riley Blake fabrics sent me some delicious fabrics from their new line 'Serenata' by Samantha Walker.
I chose a blue that I never use and then broke down and chose some funky colours that I always use because they are fun.
Now here is the blue that I did not believe could ever be used in one of my quilts. I have no idea why, as it is quite lovely... maybe because there is no pink in it. So this is view 'A'.
And this is view 'B'. What view do you like better? I have a preference, but would be interested to see what you have to say.
Popcorn. I just want you to know that this is a real money maker idea I am going to tell you, so if you want to make a lot of moola... take this thought and run. After I did all this stitching, I thought I should reward myself for using fabric that is really blue, and that I didn't add any pink to. Not yet anyway. So I made myself popcorn and put some butter on it. Part way through my popcorn I ran out of butter, and at that moment I had my brilliant thought. I need a butter pump. A portable pump I can fill up with melted butter, so when I have popcorn that has no butter on it, I can simply squirt some butter on my popcorn and continue my celebration. How amazing is that? And so not quilt related at all=)
