Morning! So do you have a day off? Bret is home and he's helping me get the last of the preparations done for tomorrows Kitchen Kickoff. It seems weird that by the end of the day the very last of that avocado green should be gone from this house. When Bret first bought it there were green heavy drapes, green sculptured carpeting, green appliances, green cabinets, green countertops, green everywhere.. it was nuts. Bit by bit we eradicated it and after all these years, it will be gone. In today's demo-it-days it seems crazy that we still had any green at all, based on the ease of remodel on TV and people's dissatisfaction over anything dated.
Yesterday was the Splendid Sampler kick off and by 9 am when I first looked the Facebook group was filled with completed blocks. So many clever fussy cut hearts! Very cute. The block is simple and sweet. I like fusible applique, so mine is machine blanket stitched. Don't you love the patchy background?
This little candy message cracked me up. Pat often includes a 'wink' in her writings, and when I saw it I totally laughed out loud, it's Pat's block and there's her 'wink'.
Looking forward to Thursday and the next block, by Jane. I haven't made it yet, but I know it's pretty! Hope you're stitching along with us! xo
