One of the other things I like to do is quilt. Recently a friend of mine gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. When she found out that she was expecting, she asked if I would make her a baby quilt. She didn't want pastels, dogs, sports, cars or any other baby boy themes. She wanted Chocolate and Turquoise. After hunting around, I found exactly what she wanted and began to sew. As I was sewing, I thought, "Hmm..I have dishes in these colors. That would make a great table setting!" I finished the quilt and got right to work.
I found another piece of Chocolate and Turquoise fabric. Four placemats from Dollar Tree were next. Chocolate and Turquoise Fiesta, layered with white salad plates from Wal-Mart came next. I came across the napkins at Dillards in Santa Fe, NM and with napkin rings from the Style Sisters, I'm done!
I purchased the little bottles from TaiPan Trading in SLC, UT with the Gerbera Daisies in them. I think that this color palatte can be a little too intense for some. The white seems to break up all that color.
I think that my battery is running low because only a few of my pictures came out. Guess it's time to find the battery charger.
Thanks Susan from "Between Naps on the Porch" for letting me use my imagination again. I love seeing what each and every one of you put together to share with us each week. You are all truly inspiring!
