So, not much stitching this weekend. I gardened on Saturday (and actually enjoyed thinning the carrots – shhh… don’t tell anyone!) and Sunday we went to Mayfair! Here’s my little Mayfair maiden:
Skipping, ribbons, flowers, painting, garlands, flutists, singing, sunshine and fresh squeezed lemonade! The children all enjoyed their turn (x3) to skip around the Maypole… and I got in on the action too.
I’m not one to miss a chance to dance!
My Fairytale Patchwork quilt is coming along, but I’ve got to order sashing. I have settled on natural linen sashing (surprise, surprise) because I think it will give the quilt more of a modern, big-girl vibe that I hope Aria will love for years to come. She is absolutely smitten with the unicorn fabrics. And, she’s agreed that the linen is not a bit gray (because, we don’t want to repeat that scenario).
Here are some test layouts. The blocks are 12″ square with 2.5″ sashing:
I really like the way the little princess looks sandwiched in Little Folks voile:
Poor little princess. Life must be rough. Luckily, us peasants can frolick at Mayfairs and enjoy the lasting pleasure of good, old-fashioned work!
