An Idea That Worked!
*I have many, many ideas constantly floating around in my head - sometimes they work and sometimes well, not so much. LOL This particular idea worked and it made me so happy!
My dear friend Carol of Brown Quilt 4 Me had a birthday in November and I wanted to send something DIFFERENT, because you know I'm normally a big old copy cat. I saw this adorable quilt on Karen's blog (aka Farmhouse Woolens) and promptly ordered the whole kit from her. It just said "CAROL" to me - yes, quilts speak to me. :-) The kit arrived and I promptly got busy - the letters are wool - I'm quite proud of myself. BTW, rather than drawing the letters individually I copied them onto Transfer-Eze (you know I love that stuff), adhered it to the wool and cut out my letters - easy peasy!
I love this little quilt so now I want to make one for me. teehee!
Now my big idea that worked! LOL I've been wanting to make a quilt holder like the one in the picture for ME but decided it would be fun to make a small one for Carol's little quilt first. So I enlisted the help of Mr Daze and he got busy. A piece of wood, three large clothes pins, spray paint, etc and it was DONE! Easy peasy with fabulous results - if I do say so myself. LOL
I've got Mr Daze (aka Ron) busy making quite a few of these because some very special friends will be receiving one, as well. Seriously, wouldn't you want one? And, if you think you do then stay tuned because I'll be giving one away right here on my blog very, very soon!
My 2nd Annual Christmas Ornament Exchange party was a smashing success! I'll post a picture or two soon.
I appreciate your visit - come again soon!
