Quotes come to life

Hello everyone. Summer has sailed itself down the river. Can hardly believe that fall will soon be upon us. Yes, that causes me a great deal of angst. That means, wait for it, Christmas is on its way and I need to get busy. 

I have been taking some of my favorite quotes and turning them into wall plagues and other assorted things. I love looking up from my desk and there it hangs or sits to remind me of the good things life has to offer. I really do love this one from Maya Angelou. 

The coloring around the edge is actually a beautiful purple but this picture was taken in the twilight hours, and I did not want to burn it out with a flash. I kinda like the subdued look of it.

My baby sister wants me to turn this into a pillow for her. I will place it on the copier with a piece of purple fabric behind it so the white shows up and copy it onto transfer material (inkjet) and then stitch it up for her. 

I know my sewing machine will wonder what in the world is going on. She is actually plugging me in and using me. GASP!!!
Enjoy and until next time, 


  1. Vee, this is so cute! Did you paint the tray or just on the tray? Love it!!
