I made this skirt. I would normally applique the front panel with the scene, but I wanted to challenge myself and do it all in patchwork. I used corduroy for the sides, and I was trying to upload more photos, but it would not let me. Sad Oh well, at least I got this one loaded!! And now my scrap bin is a little thinner on blue! Smiley  Cheesy I made the dress on the little girl too, but that was a long time ago!



I had to cut my head out of the photo, because I was shocked to see how old I am! Sad I am also a little shy to wear this out! Smiley I am thinking it would be fun to wear to the farmers market though! I was originally intending to make it for the hometown represent challenge, but we have only lived here for such a short time, and I don't quite feel "at home" yet! Smiley

I got another picture to upload:

Wow, that's beautiful!  I think you should wear it everywhere, but that's just my opinion.  Grin

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
