It Was Christmas on Thursday!


In my last post I mentioned buying wonderful fabric at the Quilter’s Convention held this week in Rochester, MN. I’m like a kid at Christmas with new fabric and have already started (and almost completed) a pillow from the peacock fabric. It has a pattern of 6 so you’ll be seeing more of the brilliant blue bird in the future, never fear. I have inklings of how I want to use each piece of fabric, but I’m always happy for you to share your opinions as well.
This is the fat quarter I purchased from the Africa booth; I thought coasters from this would be fun.What do you think?

Birds are always popular, especially cardinals..you'll see them in time for Christmas in one form or another!

Too pretty to pass up...pillow for sure then what?

I plan to bead the edges only, not the "paintings. Won't these make cool pillows?

The Ballerina has already been reserved!

Here you can see how I've already made one peacock into a pillow. I found some incredible beads for the tail feathers...stay tuned.

The toasting wine glasses will make cool coasters! The peacock fabric is fabulous and so beautiful. A handbag out of it (if the peacock isn't too big?) would be gorgeous. Looks like you have plenty of projects to work on. I'm excited to see them all! Happy beading :D

Love the peacock, but Monet is my favorite artist and I can't wait to see what you will do with the water lilies. One day I will go to Giverny and will paint those lilies. :D
