Actually, I already pieced a backing, the quilt and backing sat – and I just wasn’t happy with what I had decided to match with what. I KNOW – RIGHT?!
That is so unlike me….
But never fear, I’ll use the rejected back on something else….
Meanwhile…while I was in Huntsville, TX a couple of weeks ago ---I happened on a half price rack at Fabric Carousel…remember?
While putting fabric away today, I was about to refold this piece, and discovered that….WOAH! There is ENOUGH here and it looks really great with the top it is to be matched with!
So what does a girl in a pink mood do?
Pull out a pink machine and dress it up with pink thread and a pink crocheted and gifted spool pin doily!
I’m feeling pink all over!!
I love big prints for backs…they hide a multitude of sins!
This is Barbie, my 1950s pink class 15 Japanese import. Remember how she came to be?
I love the “MODERN” badge on her – she is definitely a Modern Girl, and if you look close you can see her crown, or is it a tiara?
She is a De Luxe Push-O-Matic!
She sews like a dream, and I am glad to have her out for a run around the block ---
You know things are really bad when it only took me 5 minutes to skim through a month’s worth of Craigslist to find out that there is nothing interesting in the way of vintage machines in my neck of the woods ---
Which means MORE SEWING TIME for me!
I also did a bit of picking up today…can you guess what I was after?
Hahahaha! I know --- what a tease!
Just a couple days now…..and we will be under way! Let the fabric gathering begin in earnest!
