That's my story, and I'm sticking to it! A few days ago, Kim, who is the thrift store queen, found the most adoreable watermelon pitcher on one of her jaunts. Her timing was impeccable! I had just quilted, and was ready to bind, a quilt that has watermelon colors. It has a matching wallhanging that is appliqued slices of watermelon. (Not quilted yet...but I'm getting to it.) Literally the same day I was contemplating summer decorating and this quilt/wallhanging, Kim posts this pic to her blog. I just had to have one! After a little googling, I found one similar. Not as cute, but still cute. I might also add that I found a matching bowl, shaped like a carved watermelon with a cute spoon that may have found its way into my shopping cart...but it hasn't arrived yet. So, without further adieu, I present to you...my pitcher!
Contestant #1s family used to call me Martha Stewart. I'm not that bad. I just have time now!
I'm so excited to put another quilt on the finished list. The name of this quilt is Whirl and Twirl, and it is a Thimbleberries pattern from the book Picnic Quilts.
I also need to give credit to Kim-----her blog is listed on the right "Kim's Big Quilting Adventure". I will warn you....don't go there unless you have the willpower to resist the urge to become a thrifter. She has gotten me more than once! She finds the best stuff....
Blessings....I'm off to enjoy this wonderful weather!
