I saw this on flickr ..... from the talented Claire Baker seen here
The embroidery is so clever, but the fabric background choice to me was top notch. I have had a craving for these fabrics that look sort of like paper. This piece was machine stitched to get the notebook look, but you can buy some to. The perfect addition to any fun piece of embroidery.
The Girl Friday line had a fancy graph paper with lines that I loved so much and still cannot bring myself to cut into. Then I also stumbled upon some paper like fabric at Pink Chalk. Thanks to another flickr friend I was led to Kathy at Pink chalk for some Basic Grey Basics by Moda Fabrics.
And now I have 4 lovely prints that I love to look at, and oogle over.
I love her online shop because it's full of things that inspire me to create. I just recently joined in on her solids stash of the month club. Have you joined in yet?
This will be a great way to preview colors and make things for holidays, or even just to incorporate more solids into your quilting.
I have been a playing tug of war with a pretty bad cold this week, but I hope to be back with some super fun scraps ideas next week. If you would like to share and idea for using or storing scraps. Leave me a comment, and make sure I can contact you to get involved with postings next week. until then
