Hi everybody, HAPPY FRIDAY! I had a great week, how about you? I'm back on track with my Splendid Sampler blocks! This is Lindsay Mayland's Pieces of Friendship block. I love the vibrant colors I used, but wish that I'd used a little more contrast with my yellows, that would have made this block more in the style it was designed. I might make it again, I might just learn my lesson and move on. Hard to say. Since Lindsay says "finished is better than perfect" I should take her advice and leave it.
Now for my coffee break reading, I've had this book for a while, but wanted to share it with you. It's Helen Phillips Modern Vintage Gifts. This isn't the first book I have by Helen, she's such an inspiration to me. The book has big and small projects, and Helen's photographs are so inviting. Have you visited her blog? I know a lot of us have cut back on our blog reading but I have made an exception for Helen's blog. Delightful.
Helen uses a lot of Pam Kitty fabric, and so I'm extra happy when I see bits and pieces used in her charming projects.
I guess that's it for this week! What's on your agenda for the weekend? I'm feeling kind of motivated to take a peek at some pesky ufos that are cluttering up my sewing table. Maybe. Maybe I'll start something new. Hard to say. Hope your weekend is happy! xo
