I introduce to you Pinky The Giraffe. Our little gal Hanna will be arriving in May and her Momma wants to decorate the nursery with giraffes. Based on a crib set that was included in her registry, I decided to do a patchwork single giraffe... in pink and grey.
I was doubtful about how it would look, but I am totally in love with her!
On my Tuesday To Do list I stated that I needed to purchase fabric for the quilt... turns out I didn't need to purchase any at all!
This is all from my stash and scraps. Even after purging from my over-filled scrap bin!
All I have left is green, brown and black... LOTS of green!
Still available, Here's the deal... You can choose the color/s that you want - all you have to do is pay for shipping ~ $10 for an envelope or $20 for a box (stuffed to their capacity!) to cover the cost of priority mail postage and to print a label (US addresses only).
Send me an email at MelvaLovesScraps@NolanQualityCustoms.com with your request and I will then give you my paypal or venmo username. You send the payment with a mailing address and I will print off a label and send the envelope or box off to you.
Funny story ~ The other day Dave had some jeans that needed repaired. Now, I know there are plenty of jokes about quilters not hemming pants or repairing items, but I do it all!
I saw this picture on social media and asked him if I could patch his pants like this...
He didn't think it was funny... so I just did a boring ol' repair.
The last time our grand-daughters were here, one of them had a hole in the knee of her pants. Grandpa had stated "Grandma could fix that for you." Had they been staying for a few more days, I really would have patched her pants like this. =D
Does anyone else remember when patchwork and embroidery repairs on jeans was in style? Ok, maybe I am aging myself... but back in the 70's - bell bottom jeans... Anybody? Lol!
Leave a comment... I'd love to hear if you remember this as well.
