Still In Progress…

Posted on June 2nd, by Amy in Celebrations, work in progress. 12 comments

My Tuesday was like a full Monday!  Celebrating Sophia’s birthday made for a fun day thou :)  All that to say, I didn’t get to work on my design challenge quilt more, BUT I did take a couple more pictures for you!

We were given a page from a seed catalog, and told to select one picture to use as inspiration.

This is where my focus landed – peas!  I love the picture on the left, all the shades of green in the shadows, and the shape.  Nothing has to be literal, just our inspiration, so I cut a circle template!

 Maybe now the photo from yesterday makes more sense?  I’m planning to be back tomorrow with more :)

Our Birthday Girl!  Sophia had a great day being the center of attention.  We also went to the doctor for her and Owen, a little reactive airway trouble…I’m thankful that it’s nothing worse, just a nasty cold that doesn’t want to leave.

What are you working on today?

    That IS a challenge! Whew!
    I can't wait to see it finished!
    I love that miss Sophia was wearing a tiara and traded it for her headband. She's such a doll!!
    And I'm glad it wasn't anything more serious. I dislike reactive airway! Skylar has it and her coughs seem to last forever.
