Mixin it up

 I have always been a HUGE fan of Michele May and her site Raspberry Rabbits...
but I finally decided to dive in and try doing some stitching on fabric and wool.
My little grandbaby H's room is getting a little makeover.
Perfect chance to try something I created.
I sat down and drew something out...something very familiar.
I decided it didn't have to be perfect...
and I found the perfect wools and fabrics to use.

In a couple of hours, I had it all laid out and
began to do a little quilting...
I don't know what it is, but this has become
my favorite part!

I love how it is turning out!
I have decided to use the only fabric that
made sense to back this...
(not just because I collect this word...)

and rather than bind it with binding,
I am going to just fold it over and
"pretend" bind it.
It looked so preeeety...
It's fun working on things for this baby's room...
I mean seriously...he's laughing all the time!
