I absolutely love this pattern. It's a summer dress I bought at H&M several years ago, and now that it's too big for me, I may cut it up for a quilt. The color is delectable too.
This beautiful pink lily grew in my garden this year, and backed by the lavender tall phlox, it's a great color study. The dotting in the pink petals is a great inspiration as well. Looks like an applique piece for me to do!
This bird lives at the Central Park Zoo birdhouse. His feathers are irridescent and so colorful. I like his shades of gray that contrast, like a very sophisticated New Yorker dressed all in gray-and-white but carrying some crazy Judith Leiber clutch.
And just because I have never posted it before, here is a quilt I made from a silly apron my mother, Gwynne White, owned. I grew up in California and my mother's house was party central. She was a loving and happy woman, a great mom, and a pretty good cook considering how much stuff came out of a can or the freezer! On the yellow pot is a transfer of one of her recipes, in her very unusual handwriting that is precious to me. She's been gone for 16 years now, and believe me when I say that I think about her every single day.
She taught me to sew. Thanks Mom! Love you always!!
