Playing

You know how it is....you have a ..(ahem) few projects to work on, but not one happens to appeal to you at the moment.  Tomorrow is another day for those....

For some reason, I wanted to try out some new fabrics I had purchased.  Wonderful, beautiful Japanese fabrics (insert swoon here).  I recently found a website that handles a large variety of those gorgeous taupe fabrics from Japan.  One World Fabrics.  Steve is the owner (who was very pleasant), with whom I spoke on the phone.  I had had a problem with the shopping cart on the website, so called.  I have to say that I received my order within three days, and am more than satisfied with the fabrics and the quality of service. :)) Anyway, I digress.

My Tweets, another free BOM, appealed to me from the very beginning.  However, I am not one to generally use those bright, colorful fabrics.  It's not that I do not like projects that I have seen done with them, but I have difficulty picking and choosing to make them work for me.  Then I saw this: 


Gorgeous, isn't it?  All those wonderful Japanese fabrics. mmmmm....
After a little playtime with my fabrics, I have this:
**  After coming back and looking at the picture again, I realized that the bird's tail is supposed to be under the wing and on top of the body.  I have changed it, which makes it look much nicer.  **

Quite different than the one above, but so far, I like it.  I'm not sure what will happen with the rest of the block...stay tuned. :)
