Here's the story: My friend's mom, Cindy, sent over some fabrics for me to add to my stash. She's a lifer, if you know what I mean: she's been sewing all her years! Anyway, she also gave me some wooden spools that I'd been wanting to collect, a spool holder, and some vintage sewing photos.
Moreover, she's a flamingo fanatic! My friend (her daughter) Jenn is always picking up little flamingo themed items to send to her mom. It's a riot! Last week, I stumbled upon some flamingo fabric at JoAnn's when I was rummaging through the remnant bin (one of my very favorite things to do!). Take a peek at what I did with it! Not too shabby, eh? At first I expected it to lean toward the tacky, but I think it ended up just the opposite! Quite classy! I worked up the piping myself (another favorite thing of mine to do lately, too).
