First of all, did anyone notice the new theme on my blog? I get bored with my surroundings easily - I'm always re-arranging furniture and wanting to paint and re-paint, so it's only natural that I would feel the same way about my blog!
I have had a major thing lately for red and aqua together, so when I saw this background I knew it was time for a change! This is the place I get backgrounds - it's easy to do, and best of all, free!
Onto the business of applique..
This is the second block in my flower patch...
And this is what they will end up in...
I found 2 of these doors on the side of the road, so I asked the owner if I could take them, and she was a bit bewildered as to why I would even want them, but she said yes! I could see massive potential in them. I may put photos in the other one. They need a good cleaning and maybe a fresh coat of paint...I'm still deciding on a color. Any ideas?! I was thinking teal, the same paint from my boys' room, (which is much more teal and not so blue in real life) but now that I see the blocks behind glass, I rather like the shabby look of the original. Still needs a good cleaning though!
This weekend is going to be a great one...tonight I am going to a friend's jewelry party - she makes everything herself. She is so talented! And tomorrow I am off to a quilt show (which I said was last week but I was a week early!) so I'm sure I'll have some goodies to show you soon :)
