IT IS SCRAPPY TIME!!!

I truly had a fun fun day in my sewing room.

This morning as I was visiting my mother (she is in assisted living) she did not seem very happy at all.  

When I came home I had some free time (a miracle), so I decided to make a door hanging for her.  Everyone at this Assisted Living home has something on their doors.  I have taken it upon my self to keep my mother's door decorated with wall hangings.


This is what I came up with today.  Oh what fun I had, I don't think I have had this much fun in a long time.


I knew I wanted to do a flamingo, my mother loves flamingos.  I knew I wanted to use my Island Batik Fabric scraps.  The only thing that is not from Island Batik is the binding.

I went to the computer and typed in cartoon flamingos.  I searched until I found the one I wanted.

Once I had it printed out, I cut it in fourths and cut all the excess paper off.  Then I resized it to fit the full page.  Then I cut that one in fourths....I did this three times until I got what I wanted.

I decided to add a little humor to the wall hanging.

Here is hoping that it puts a smile on her face and all the other residents there.
