Murphy helped me pick out fabrics! He voted against both of those blues, in the end. I think he didn't like them being brighter than his blue eyes. :)
I'm going to make a village with a snow-capped purple mountain backdrop. It's going to be a rainbow village, with the blue sky on top, going down to purples, then red, orange and yellow houses on a green grass yard with a small pond with a fountain. There will be some things in the sky, probably a sun and a cloud or two and maybe a curving line of flying geese, in a rainbow of colors, that will get smaller as it gets farther away. (For those of you who don't quilt, flying geese are triangles of fabric.) I'm making the houses right now, that's my today project, getting them done.
It feels good to have gotten started on this and I hope my partner will like it.
This is what I'm sending to my mug rug partner- 2 mug rugs, a scrap of hedgehog fabric, a chocolate bar, 2 cocoa mixes and 2 postcards of our area. I think she'll be pleased.
And here is something I made to keep. 3 birds on a wire, with butterflies. I hung it on the wall in my craft room, inside the ironing board cabinet. I'll see it a lot there. :)
