My day for the Shades of Blue was topped with our Valley finally getting some snow from these passing snow storms. I love taking pictures of the mature apple tree off the corner of my house and everything held such a bluish glow as it was dressed in snow.
I had this magazine bookmarked for the project for this hop. Actually, I have a few projects I want to make that are in this issue.
A cute embroidery and the hopes of fulfilling the need to hand stitch for a change. I took the liberty to change it up a little bit as it looks a 'little lost'.
I opted to use fuseable windows in blue and the red door for more 'POP'. The red is from the left over binding drawer and I had just a 1.5" x 2.5" piece left when done. The vintage tin was one of my greatgrandmother's button tins and the wooden cutout was made by my Dad (who has been gone for 13yrs. now).
Just so you can see the fun little blue print. This is a vintage feed sack piece that I have been holding (gifted to me). You just have to use fabrics! A pretty soft blue with apples in the lacey flowerets. I have about a FQ of it left and added it to my 30's tote to be used later.
A cute little 'Welcome Friends' hanger was a fun project to start the New Year with.
