Before I have another super lengthy post about
the Japan trip (next one is going to be about
fabrics + etsy sales), maybe I can have a few short
posts so that I am not stealing too much of your time?
This is a block I made for Lisa for Ringo Pie bee.
January was Lisa's month and her theme was "Door".
When she told us about this theme, it
was around Christmas season and my mind was totally
set for a door with a window with a Christmas tree behind it.
But you know it's been over a month since last
Christmas. I even saw a dumpster with a big
Christmas tree inside the other day. So how about
a Christmas tree going goodbye... oh no..
that would be too sad.
Let's keep the tree. Oh how about adding
windows, packages at the door, and a mail box?!
Wait, the theme is Door, I am not supposed to
create a whole house. ok.. then..
No more packages and a mail box, but how about
a little welcome "OPEN" board on the door?
Hmmm.. the board might be more fun if it says "LISA"
How about people peeking from windows? No that's weird.
Ok, no people but a LISA board. Looking better.
How about her puppy Moose coming out of the door?!?!
I was sooooooo excited about the idea and spent
some time researching on Moose and seeing how
I can paper-piece him..... umm.. that'd be way
beyond my basic paper-piecing skills. Definitely
don't ruin the image of the cute Moose!
After all, this is the block I finished this morning.
I am just keeping my fingers crossed that this
turned out to be acceptable and that it is almost
up to quality of everyone else's door block.
Thank you for letting me share my creation!
Have a great day!
