I think handwork is in my future.....

as I cleaned I found
ah hem.......
TONS of embroidery floss
not sure where it all came from
I remember as a teen embroidering some
pillowcases for my Gram
but I dont remember having
this many

look at the regular size scissors to see
the size of the box

chock a block FULL

friendship bracelets anyone? LOL

remember this little clean up project?
I pulled pinks and purples and used the
5 inch charms in the center 
and 2 1/2 inch strips for the outside
and made little blocks for fun

well two became this many after I spent one day
just cutting out the parts and pinning them
the blocks will be about 8 inches so am 
thinking for my granddaughter I need
at least 5 across and 8 down
so that means 40 blocks and I have 17

I am out of any pink fabrics
anyone have any purple or pink pieces
they want to get rid of?
I will take them LOL
no seriously..........
I want to make this for my granddaughter 
as a lap quilt for Christmas

if I had a panel that would go
I would put that in the center

but I am liking the modern look of this one
that one lonely bright pink in the corner needs
some company dont you think???

Oh, pink and purple are my weakest colors in the stash or I would send you some - that will be so cute! said...

Hmmmm may have some. 5 inch squares and 2 1/2 inch strips?

Oh I do (for some unknown reason as I hardly ever use pink) have tons of pinks--but not much in the way of violets..will forward some pinks onto you..hugs, Julierose
