Monday's Mantra....Little sprinkle of this and stitch of that.....


This morning I awoke early and was excited to stitch a piece to COMMEMORATE this past weekend's memorable Easter.....

If you did not have a chance to read last night's post.....this piece will make more sense why there is a novelty BUNNY in the corner when you read it.... he he he he!  And the JUMP FOR JOY in the text fabric.......
Keep in mind that as you double click on photo to see up close....all of these scraps were in one bag....MY DESERT BAG...Godwinks throughout!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can this count as WONKY BARGELLO?  The sandstone mountains of our camping backdrop were folded and so I attempted to mimick with this sandstone bargello.... The "2"- twins first Easter..."LOVE YOUR FAMILY"- my whole trip and what I will remember....

Petroglyphs.....Bananas that Aimee gifted to Porsche as a peace offering....Verdant field of wildflowers...

And of course....the EASTER BUNNY parade.....

I am thinking of a fun little quilt idea.....what if this year I create these little blocks for special times and then peek at the end of the year....HMMMMMMMM?  Thank you Victoria for teaching me to use scraps and "MAKE FABRIC"...that makes memories....that reminds me the scraps of our past are our FUTURE stories,,giggles,,,,moments of reverie..............

Love to you all! Em
