I ordered this book 2 months ago and have been wondering when it would come in.
I had nearly given up any hope of ever getting it.
It's a book about wrapping gifts, called Presentations, by Carolyne Roehm.
I have just glanced through it, and will spend more time with it this weekend.
This chartreuse and pink package with dried flower heads caught my attention.
Imagine that pink wrapping paper being tangerine. It would look great sitting on the table on my deck this summer. Now who can I invite over on their birthday so I can give them a gift to match my deck quilts? Ha, ha....don't get the straightjacket out. I am only kidding. Although......it sure would be cute. July 26 is my Dad's birthday.........Hmmmmmmmm......I wouldn't rule it completely out after all!
Last night I turned that little 7-inch flower block into a big 21-inch flower-within-a-star block.
I made a little "oops" in it. That dark green on the bottom left sticks out like Zoey would in a Miss America bathing suit competition....Not a pretty sight!
I was tempted to just leave it because ripping out tiny stitches is not fun.
But I decided if I was putting this much effort into these babies, they might as well look their best.
So early this morning I ripped it out.
Oh, look at the book underneath. . . that ribbon sure does match...
