It's all about me bloghop

Today is the second last day of the 


blog hop. And it is "my day"


all these wonderful blogs are on the schedule today:

The German Mom  <------- here you are


Marlene and Madame Samm did a wonderful job keeping us all together. Thanks so much!

So, what did I do?

First of all, I have to admit that it was pretty difficult for me to come up with an idea for what I wanted to make out of it.
And so the bloghop did start and I was still thinking about what to do....

And then, finally, I knew where I wanted to go....

Think of Marilyn Monroe, Tomato soup and Andy Warhol - do you know what I mean?




My daughter recognized it, so you might too :-)

And here are all the four lovely ladies one by one:

  Miss blue: 



Miss Orange: 



Miss Green:



and Miss Red:



and guess who came up with the slogan?

My hubby!

Who would have thought he could be such a genius?

This piece - all made of material I already had in my stash , I didn't buy anything new at all for it! - found a place over my sewing table



(Yes, I had to clean up my sewing table before I could take the picture, you bet!)


It is a little wonky, and I made some serious bad faults (I won't put my finger on it in case you missed them *g*), but it was to late to do it over, and I am pretty happy how it turned out in the end.

Thanks so much for stopping by, don't forget to hop over to the next blog

Spoilt Dog Quilts

and come back soon!

Have a great week - we will celebrate my son's sixth birthday today and the arriving of my good friend from Germany today.

  41. I think they turned out great and a wonderful addition to your sewing room. ANd the bonus is using fabric from stash. I always feel especially great when that happens.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Tina-The perfect project using fabrics only from your stash. There should be a blog hop that uses only fabrics from one's stash-now that would be a good one! I like your Andy Warhol/Tomato Soup inspiration. If he only knew-imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. From the SF Bay Area, thanks for sharing.
