I remember Ed Emberly drawing books from WAY back. I won't go into too much detail about how far back. But anyway. I've been an Ed Emberly fan for a LOOOONG time. I think I covered some of my school notebooks in frogs like that back in the day.
These elephants are KILLING me! Really.
I'm having a "drop everything and cut these" sort of moment right now. Do you think we need to have dinner tonight?
I had more fun mail this week! In addition to a box from Godiva Chocolates on my porch I got a package from Sarah containing these blocks. Aren't they great?
The coloring on these looks a little off. I tried to fix it but, hey, it's kind of dark around here these days.
It is a good thing I am almost finished with this quilt. I finished the top today so just basting and quilting to go. I am eager to get working on these orange and teal stars. I am still awaiting blocks from on person but I hear they are in the mail! Wooo Hoo.
We have pies in the oven and a turkey in the fridge. Have a great day tomorrow.
Today I spent the day getting caught up on my bee blocks for Sarah. She wanted free pieced girls on a pink background. I love the way this first one turned out.
I tried to give the next girl some braids. I ended up making her head twice and it still didn't turn out like I envisioned. As it is she grew so tall she almost didn't fit in the 12 inch block. I found these blocks to be challenging. They require a lot of thought and planning.
Also, I got Lisa's star blocks in the mail today. Aren't they great?
Warm days & cool nights Life begins to flow to roots. Joy is in the air.
I think my Doll Quilt Swap partner was stalking me. She certainly knows we are eager for spring here. Look at this lovely quilt I got in the mail from her this week. I will enjoy having this bit of early spring in my sewing room. She really captured that feeling when everything bursts from the ground with the warming rays of the sun.
In addition to the haiku and quilt, look at the other fun stuff she sent. Fabric and yarn!
