Even the pockets make you want to go outside.
Those buttons look downright playful and give your eye plenty of places to roam. Kind of like a butterfly garden with a large quilted butterfly coming in for a landing from underneath.
Just for the fun of it; here's what gets a new life in "summer pickin's".
*green and orange picnic blanket, purchased secondhand some years ago because it reminded me of a blanket we had in the barn for the kittens when we were kids.
*hand-stiched green quilt that you've heard me go on about in past bags.
*the butterfly quilt; decorated with that
*red, green, and orange quilt bit underneath the flap that my friend Gloria found for me
*a floral bandana; a doll's dress; and a kitchen apron
*a splashy bunch of green and yellow buttons.
Thanks to those of you who got here bright and early. These words are arriving quite a few hours later in the morning, as I'm on holidays and did not get out of bed at 6:00.
