Operation Red Kitchen...


Our kitchen is going to get some re-modeling in the future, but I wanted to show my RED display... :o) This is in the pass-through between the kitchen and our living room. (It's supposed to be the dining room, but we are using it as the living room.) I saw one of these old kitchen scales on Pinterest, and decided "I can do that".... So I searched Etsy and found a reasonable priced old kitchen scale, and painted my own flag on it. I LOVE the way it turned out!

So here's my little red area, so far... An enamelware pot, rolling pin with red handles, nut grinder, small sifter... A wooden star that Lizzie painted for me... My scale, and my "pie"... I made this ceramic piece of pie back in Jr High (I think) Art... I don't like pie, and I guess it's cherry cheesecake, but it goes perfectly with my red display... :o)

in-between-everything-else project :o)

This "Rainbow Stars" quilt was a free pattern from McCall's Quilting, and with my love of star quilts, and that pink background, I was hooked!
I chose a soft Kona pink for the background (similar to quilt pattern) and then these fabrics will be my stars! The solids are Kona cottons, the prints are from the "Barefoot Roses" by Tanya Whelan line! :o) This is my "in-between-everything-else" project... :o)

Finished up this customer quilt - I used the "Pow Wow" pattern, in just two colors, Kona Wine and Kona Willow, with Kona Sand for the background. I really love working with Kona solids!
My customer is giving this quilt to her future daughter-in-law's parents, as a wedding gift... :o) 
I like the way the hand-quilting turned out! :o) She's picking it up tonight, I hope she does too! :o)  
I wanted a little quick-easy project after that hand-quilting, so I made this little bunting... I've seen them all over the web, and have wanted one for awhile! Goes perfectly on the new quilt rack that Jim made me! :o) This hangs in my sewing room! :o)
