So, last time I told you about the Hey, Cupcake fabric I got for Chistmas. I was super excited and scoured all my patterns, looking for applique blocks I could add to it. I knew I'd saved those patterns for a reason!
I've got an obsessive personality. Once I latch on, I don't let go until I'm done or bored. So, I basically worked on this constantly for a week and half. Between work, dr. appts and all that other crap. And, here's what I came up with.
I did a lot of half square triangles with my favorite cream and yellow dot fabric. Then, came across this lay out by accident because I didn't have enough of this color to do my original thought. I love it.
I love her crown and matching bag.
I went to Jackman's recent sale to get the outer border. I decided on the cupcake fabric but in black with the black and white stripe as the binding. I'll share a pic when I get it put together this week.
Other than that, my other obsession has been Ancesry.com. I made myself not work on that today because it was becoming a problem. Seriously. Rich's family is only 6 generations American so, there hasn't been much to look up for him. However, the Purdy's, Bradley's and Hass's have been here since the pilgrams. I've only made it to the Civil War on the Bradley side which would be my mother's paternal side. I've fallen in love with Quintilla, Peni Money and Beulah Bradley. The men however have been decidedly boring. Robert, James, William. SO MANY generations with all the same names is making my head spin. Trying to line up spouses, making sure you don't marry them off to a cousin with the same name...
Have a fabulous week!
