An Apple a Day

Good Morning friends!  How are you?  Things are perking along here.  Last week Bret, Frankie and I took a quick trip down to SoCal for a visit to Disneyland.  We spent one day park hopping  between Disneyland and California Adventure and it was a fun and exhausting day.  I took hardly a picture the whole trip.   On our second day we headed over to the City of Orange to my favorite antique shop Country Roads Antiques and Gardens.  Then we headed over to Studio City to Bonjour Fete, a delightful little shop that Frankie had been following on Pinterest and Instagram for a while.

Back in PamKittyVille I'm still trying to get back in the groove. Yesterday we had a rainy day which was perfect for sewing. I've been unable to focus on a project but when I saw these scrappy apples on @abrightcorner 's Instagram feed I knew I had to make one.

They're so cheerful, so thanks Andy for the happy inspiration.  The apples are from Lori's Spelling Bee Book, made scrappy by exchanging a solid print apple with 4 prints.  So clever.
 
That's it for me, what are you up to?

My letter today is uppercase U!   Like all the letters, U comes together quickly and instructions are available it two sizes.  U won't be sorry you started this project.

Don't you love how this book lies flat. I'm not good about keeping my sewing area cleared off so being able to fold the book in half with my instructions next to my machine really is convenient.

The illustrations are perfect and make it easy to follow along with  just a glance.

I sure had a good time with this sew along and I appreciate Fat Quarter Shop and Lori for including me.  It was a lot of fun! Be sure and hop over and see what Charise is up to. She's making lower case u and I know everything Charise makes is amazing.
