Friends, I am smitten. Pinkish is nearly finished. I assembled the final rows this evening and all that remains is selecting, purchasing, and attaching a border and then she can go off to the machinist.
I have two friends waiting in the wings to help with the border selection; one has gone so far as to have dropped off her collection of appropriate Kaffe-and-company prints to audition. This should be resolved within a few days, and perhaps by this time next week, Pinkish will be a flimsy. I hope it isn't too sophisticated for a not-yet-five-year-old girl . . . .
While I've been stitching on Pinkish, a stack of BOMs caught my eye. It is one of the Designer Mystery BOMs that the Fat Quarter shop puts out. When then announced it, I simply had to have it. Regrettably, I did not put each block together as it arrived and there is a stack of them there and I've no interest whatsoever in them.
Part of the problem is the color scheme: It is mostly cheerful red(dish) and almost aqua. They look nice together. Trouble is, they've been so much the trend for the past couple of years that I'm tired of them. You know, the way we eventually got tired of Harvest Gold, Avocado and Coppertone once the Sixties were over? I'm going to have to think up some sort of an incentive to proceed.
Meanwhile, I'm in love with Pinkish.
