My first project was an umbrella; and I paired these four of the grey fabrics of the collection fabrics with Surf Peppered Cotton. Love it!!
I really do like this!
While I was trying to figure out a fun way to take pictures of this, my step-daughter Sheryll and her husband Jim invited Jack and me to a concert at Blossom Music Center.
This is a wonderful facility that hosts a large number of musical programs each year; and it's the summer home of the Cleveland Orchestra. Blossom is an amphitheater, located in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio which is less than two hours from our home. Yay! The pavilion seats 5,700 people, and there's space for about 13,500 more on the lawn. As usual, we sat on the lawn, simply because we think it's fun and relaxing.
There was a chance of rain the day we were there, so took my umbrella - just in case. While we were walking toward the facility, I had an idea and knew that Sheryll would be up for helping me. She's always fun and up for a challenge! 😊
At first, I just snapped a few shots of Sheryll and the umbrella.
I wanted to get a few pictures with the amphitheater in the background...
And then the fun began!
Do you remember the "Where's Waldo?" books?
My kids loved those books, and I'm not ashamed to admit that I kind of liked them too. So, I decided to use that theme and create a "Where's My Happy Place?" blog post.
We arrived early, so before the concert began, Sheryll took a stroll around the facility and I snapped pictures of her and the umbrella. She had fun doing this and it started a lot of conversations! FYI - projects made with this fabric WILL be the start of many conversations. It is that wonderful !!
So, how about joining the fun and play along with me?
Can you find "My Happy Place" in each of the pictures? Just like the books, sometimes it is really easy to find it, but you'll have to look hard on others.
So, where's YOUR Happy Place?
I know where it'll be if you use this fabric!
Tomorrow, I'll show a completed quilt top made from this block.
