To keep my momentum up, I grabbed another of my UFOs and started working on it. This one had already been well on its way with the hand quilting. I had two rows of blocks quilted. I am giving you just a glimpse of this one so far...
I based the entire quilt around this adorable storybook fabric I bought. It reminded me of a vintage 1930s or 40s children's book. I fell in love with it and came up with a block that would show off the various scenes on the fabric. It is also very pink as this quilt is for Zoe and pink is her favorite color.
I decided I wanted to do some fobbing again this afternoon. My beads are still spread out all over the table as I am planning another necklace again. I wanted to first decorate the zipper of a tapestry purse I was given a couple of years ago by a friend. I use this for my stitching. It is fun to dress up things with fobs!
Here is a closer look.....I used the colors in the purse as well as the theme of flowers by adding purple, green and gold to the fob and using a bee and flowers as charms. Even the purple bead has flowers on it. Enlarge the photos for details.
This dragonfly fob is a gift. I hope the person it will be mailed to this week will like it.
