My New Orange Joy

>> Sunday, November 6, 2011

 This weekend we went for a speedy quick visit to my folks.
My dad had these treasures for me!

 I love reading old patterns almost as much as making quilts.

 Notice the sashing advice in this one - Color Could Be Use Here!

 Speaking of Colour - check out my fabulous new ORANGE Desk!
It's pretty tricky to take photos of an orange desk:)

 The orange is not quite as 70's orange as this project in one of the little booklets though. That's definitely 1978 orange.

 We found this lovely in the Value Village second hand store.
I actually had to convince myself to go back and get it. Yes. I did.

$12 orange desk = SEW JOY!

The silly grin is still around a day later!
I think it will make writing posts and patterns a little more joyful:)

With Orange Joy,
Sarah Vee

LOL! Sarah -- I love your 'silly' grin *and* your orange desk, too! I really like that block, too. So much so that I've almost completed a Christmas table topper using it -- just one block -- I made it about 18" square and added two (color) borders. I can't wait to finish it! :)

That desk is so you, Sarah!
You can tell it's new (to you), there are no papers piled on it yet! EnJOY the clear working space.

That is the coolest desk ever, and I love your hair!

I have some of those pattern books that had belonged to my mother-and she had ordered them from the newspaper! Aren't they neat in how you have complete control of your fabric and color???
