I love it! It's going to be very hard to give this one away. It's hanging in my entry way right now, where my Open Hearts quilt usually hangs, and it looks good there. So very good.
But, no. I made it for my friend, Sandi, who is my travelling partner this summer.
Can you see what it is? It's a stamp! €0.85 is the cost of sending a letter from France to Canada; 07 24 10 is the date we arrive in Paris; and of course there is the Eiffel Tower, the quintessential symbol of France!
I put the yellow baby ric-rac around two sides of the 'stamp' because that's all that was included in the package sent to me by Pat Sloan. I searched this city high and low for larger, off-white ric-rac, but it was nowhere to be found - not at the local fabric shop, not at Michael's, not even at Sprawl-Mart. My LQS doesn't sell trims at all. So, I had to make do.
And I used the circle cutter I bought on the weekend to make the yoyos. It's a fun little gadget and I have more plans for it in the near future. So, thumbs up on the circle cutter - a good purchase!
I'm so happy to have another finish for 2010. They've been small ones so far. Now... let's get that Tisket a Tasket finished. Finally.
