patchwork obsession part one


checkbook cover in linen and cotton

Highly influenced by Sally Shim.
When I showed it to my husband he said, "Would you stop already?"
Lots of things are getting a patchwork covering in this house.

Oooh, I love it!! The linen with bright fabrics combo is perfect! Just tell Kevin patchwork is cheaper than buying a whole piece of fabric...no wait he's smarter than that isn't he! Oh well, I think its great!!

Now why does my checkbook still have that boring ugly plastic cover from the bank?
Adding this to the to do list: check
Haha - a pun!

Mama Urchin said...

Well, you need to do something with all those little pieces right?

Connie said...

It's wonderful...and what's wrong with "everything in patchwork" I ask...sounds good to me :)

Sarah said...

My boyfriend has uttered that exact phrase just recently... in nearly the same context! And I agree with Mama Urchin, what else are you going to do with all your scraps?

I love linen...

Very cute! And you aren't going too far until he gets patchwork boxers. Wait I shouldn't give you any more ideas. :)

That Sally - she made a patchwork lover out of me! The cover is so cute - I hope we'll see more.

In my defense, I already have the patchwork boxers and I was shown the checkbook cover after seeing progress on your seven other projects. These folks get a picture and three lines -- I live with it!

It's a good thing you're so gorgeous and that you do such a good job at this stuff.

Love ya girl!

That is darling. My husband doesn't understand my craft obssessions either. Great colors. Beautifully detailed work. If I was that good at patchwork.. i'd cover Everything.

I love it the cheque book cover. Patchwork makes everything look so cozy. I need to make an eye glass case for my sister...perhaps a patchwork one is in order!

Linda said...

Very cute... J's is falling apart, maybe I should make him one! :)

kat said...
