Fairy terrarium and The start of a quilt.
Here in Kennewick they have a huge Craft Warehouse that also houses an amazing selection of quilting fabric. I went in there to look for fabric and saw these beautiful Fairy jars. They are like a terrarium, but no real plants. I broke down the price and they were expensive to make. So I started looking for alternatives. I went to Goodwill and found three big vases for 1.00 a piece. Craft warehouse sold them for 15.00 and up. I got moss and rocks and colored clear rocks from the Dollar Store...These were about 6.00 per small bag. At Craft Warehouse, I bought the Fairy, a little bench and the bird. The nest and the eggs I had. I just glued moss on the nest and hot glued it onto a piece of driftwood I found at a park that is on the banks of the Columbia river. I love how it turned out. In my window I have this beautiful lily blooming. It is huge and looks like and Amaryllis except it isn't red and it is blooming now instead of Christmas. Maybe I am misinformed. If you know will you let me know? Today I am working on a little girl's baby quilt for my niece Emily. She is having a baby girl named Lily. I am using retro pink fabrics and vintage chenille from a bedspread. I am using a vintage pillow case for the borders. Finished it will have Minkee scallops and a Minkee back. I am going to make a hat and soft shoes to match. I forgot how inspiring it is to be blogging. I am glad I decided to blog again....xoxox melinda
