DWM-9/6/2010-and Happy B-day to me!

Yes, it is Labor Day, it's my birthday, and we are on vacation! Lots of things right there to be happy about! I also retreated into the sewing room for a couple hours yesterday, and finished making some more of these fun little houses. I am onlygoing to make 16 of them, then put them together with sashing and I was thinking of a free-pieced letter border that says Wonky Town or something. But as you can see, I need to work on my free-pieced letters! The W below is my first attempt! It turned out wierd, has some raw edges showing, and I think I can do better! So I'll try again...later!




I finished applique' stitching my Cupcakes blocks. I am glad I have 2 other projects to take on vacation! Below, I show fabrics I think will be sashing and outer border fabrics. That bright pink is really bright though, so I don't know. If you want to, share an opinion! I was thinking of free-piecing words around this one too for a inner border-like-Sweet treat, delicious, that sort of thing. Maybe if I get better at it!




So, that is my design wall! Have a safe and Happy Labor Day!

God Bless
Mary
