What do you think?
Hopefully the binding will be sewn on the #6 UFO project of the bird house quilt tomorrow. But I'm in a quandary, which binding should be used? Initially I had planned on the Brown fabric shown on the left of the above photo. It's the same fabric that I used for the branch hanging down and usually I tend to make sure the binding used is also somewhere on the quilt when I go to finish one. BUT the deeper blue one used on the backing of this looks great with just that little bit of black piping. Which one do you think works best?
Also am thinking of this style of embellishment, Art Glitter to add some life to the icicles. I did try to capture the sparkle, ut it's lost in the photos, trust me though, it has plenty of shine to the naked eye and I think it will be perfect!
While blog hopping I stumbled across a cute idea. PGD#1 and I fixed it this afternoon for her treat after school.
The recipe came from cheeky kitchen and it's called snowman shooters. Of course I adapted it to fit her likes and my dishes. We made a bed of snow out of whipped cream first and then I scooped different sizes of vanilla for the snowman. She decorated the face out of a part of a candy corn and the top parts of 2 hershey kisses. Then she thought about hair and made some out of the cream and used the remnant chocolate piece for a top hat, all her own idea. She had a ball!
Well actually make that 3 balls. She had a lot of fun and she didn't wait too long to scarf it up either!
