I love flags...when the wind blows, they have a life of their own. They represent things, they have stories to tell, they command attention. Heck, it sounds a lot like us quilters, now doesn't it! ;-) My guess is, Madame Samm must have thought the same thing. She and Thearica have once again brought us together to show just who we really are! Thank you ladies for all you do!
By now, its no surprise to any of you that I like moose. No, better change that to I LOVE moose! So for my flag, of course you knew there would be a moose on it...
and right you are!
There us just something about this moose that just screamed...I gotta be your flag! Be it the patchwork ears, or the half crazed look on his face. (like, from a quilting all-nighter) This could possibly be the best avatar of me yet! :-) I know you can "all"see the resemblance!
Whippersnapper rubber stamp design. I just go crazy when I page thru the stamps that they have. Each and ever one is just so perfect for quilts!
Now about that background fabric...it's some of my hand dye fabric. I just knew that eventually some project would just scream for it! :-) I don't usually strive for pieces like this. When I get them, I am just not sure what to do with them, so they tend to sit on a shelf for awhile. I'm so glad that "crazy" quilting fairy finally whispered in my ear! LOL!
My flag is on a stick, but headed for the stairwell going down to my sewing room. Hanging to welcome all... We had our house sided last year and the new rule here is NO MORE HOLES. Nothing, I ask??? No flags, no Christmas lights, no quilt blocks...I must admit, throwing a grade school tantrum, yelling that's not fair ran thru my mind! But really now, I am an adult... ok, the jury is still out on that one! ;-) The garden would be the next option, but there is no shade, and flags fade out in record speed, with our mile high altitude. So, safe and sound in my sewing room is the next best option. I will just admire all your flags waiving free in your yards and dream!
That being said, I screamed with delight when I saw the flag that Fishkopp posted about cleaning her house, the very first day of the hop. I just have to have make that flag. Now, if I can't put a hole in anything, I wonder how he would feel about sticky Velcro attached to the siding?????? I am definitely going to think on that one. LOL!!
Did I hear give a way time? Yes indeed, I did.
How about a yard of my snow dye fabric...many of us have had so much snow this year. At least I found a way to make good use of that blasted white stuff! :-) Collectively we could have dyed enough fabric to cover the earth I am sure! :-)
Just leave me a comment telling me what visions you have for using it.
I want to know what your "crazy" quilting fairy might whisper in your ear!I'll pick a winner April 3rd, the last day of the hop.
Now, I stumbled on this greeting card a few weeks ago. It was just so perfect...
Only when you need to send the very best!
On that note...Here is a list of my fellow bloggers today.
I'm off to see what's waiving at their place!
