I don’t know the name of this quilt pattern, but it sure turned out nice. You’ll notice I use this color combination in my paintings lately. Well, you’ll notice it when I take photos of my paintings! Blue and brown and yellow just work in my mind.
This USA paper pieced quilt pattern is available for free on the internet, it’s one of those I’ve set aside for “one day when I have lots of free time.” I wish this person would have actually quilted the whole thing, because as it is it sort of looks like it’s lacking structure. Maybe that’s why they only got a second place?
Seed packets used as bunting! Genius! Inexpensive, pretty, and something you were going to throw away anyway. This will add a spot of brightness to the dining room wall….
I said yesterday I never know what to do with photographic fabrics. This one turned out nice, didn’t it? I wonder if the person printed her own images? Maybe a combo of fabric already available, filled out with her own favorite stills. I’m guessing.
I always like chalk paint furniture, and even pink this one works for me. Picking out the right knobs is key to making the whole thing pull together.
Hey, pink again. You just know some little girl is going to adore this quilt.
Scrollwork on the sides of the shelf. Doesn’t this look elegant?
I’m told this is a minecraft skeleton. It was quite the hit. How simple would that be to make?
There were several examples of crewelwork. I’ve never done this kind of handsewing, so I ought to put it on my lengthy list of activities for when I have time. A grouping of these would be just right.
Doesn’t this girl have a great expression? Hee hee.
I’m not in love with the colors, but I like that this shawl has a little collar. On second thought, you could call the color “moss” and it would work with a lot of neutral outfits.
And my only horse tongue this year. I really didn’t get as many photos as in years past, but there are still a few winners that will make great paintings.
I took a photo of the anonymous little girl trying to climb the most difficult rock wall and win the $100 at the top. I’m told she tries every year, and one of these years she will be tall enough to reach all those handholds. They place them far apart so it’s difficult for even an adult (they don’t want to give away too many of those $100, even though I’m told they give away several every day).
And that was the best of the fair! Truly, the best week of summer!
