speaking of liberty and the color purple xo

a quiet weekend and some liberty

we drove east on saturday for an adventure

we stopped  at beckler river for a visit ... # 4 is a perfect spot for future camping xo

we turned around at levenworth ~ after having a bite to eat  xo

and sunday  i played w a new idea for my liberty spools quilt ~ i am thinking text fabric and kona snow now...

and i spy a face in the liberty fabric in the top middle....can u see it?

this was my original plan ~ various spool tops and a linen backround ~ but i am not loving these so i think they will become a small project....and i won't lie ~ this is a 6 and 3/4 " block and these teeny tiny hst's make me crazy xo
                                                           happy monday xo pam
