If you've been around on my blog (thank you for that ;) ), you may already know I am a huge fan of Penny and Kerry, because I talk about them a lot. Well it's because these ladies just simply rock! They have become such great, sweet friends of mine in the past few years, and I have always been inspired by their impeccable works!
Their new adventure, sew-ichigo kicked off recently, and they just made their first set of paper-piecing patterns, "Kitchen Classics" available for sale! You've got to take a look at them! They are just soooooo adorable! Ever since they told me about these patterns, I had been secretly hoping they'd ask me to test their patterns because I knew they would be wonderful just like everything they create, and I have a weak spot for any kitchen related stuff!
You can imagine how excited I was to test this KitchenAid pattern Penny came up with! When I first saw her KitchenAid block for Ringo Pie bee, my jaw dropped to the floor! I don't know what it is about KitchenAids, but they are just so lovely! Penny did such an amazing job creating the difficult shape into a doable quilt block pattern!
This potholder was made for Jacey of Jaceycraft who is going to get married soon ;) I had always been wanting to send her something. She likes cooking, and I have spied a KitchenAid in her blogpost. I couldn't tell if her KitchenAid was in cobalt blue or black or possibly any other color, but I guessed it was in cobalt blue, so I made the KitchenAid with a fabric in a similar color (navy blue). I love the way she combines blue and orange in her beautiful projects, so I picked orange-ish fabric for the bowl. It made her way yesterday and I was just so happy to hear she likes it, hehe!
Let me leave you with some cherry blossoms pictures I took about a few weeks ago. Japanese cherry blossom blooms for only a week each year. Seeing them around really made me feel I am back home.
Have a beautiful weekend!
