Pure and Simple......CELEBRATING Sharon's "leftovers".....

Just thinking of a post to CELEBRATE my sister brings a huge grin to my lips and a flutter to my heart!!!!!!!  She is the cutest thing ever and her quilting talent is so amazing to me!  I was supposed to visit Paducah with my mom and sis this year and I was unable to pull it off... But this photo is like a balm to missing out on the fun. Sharon began this quilt in the hotel when at Paducah with leftovers from a quilt she made for my nephew...CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS IS FROM LEFTOVERS?.. not your greasy meatloaf of yesterday! 
I love the patchy nature of it and as Sharon said yesterday, Kinda Yellow Brick Road-like...and so it is!


Sharon called after having visited a quilt shop and was on her way to pick up the kids....And I was cutting my batiks for my newest project in my office.  I always get a kick out of it when I am sewing and I hear from my mom or sis or both and we are all creating in our different corners of this world...KINDA FUN!!!!!!!


Raise your hand if you love Text fabric!!!!!!!!!

Today is Friends Day and I cannot think of a more fun post to CELEBRATE a neat day then of my sis and her quilt...Sending love to you, Sharon, and to all of you friends in Blog Heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May there be a pure and simple flare to your Wednesday, Em

I guess I'll be waiting for the pure and simple flare--all I've got right now is a dog who can't seem to make it past 1.5 miles, a clean car and a swept garage! But oh, that feels so good! Come on flare!!
