Pretty Peacock

I had such a productive day yesterday! I spent the day with my friend Debbie and had such a fun time! We stamped, talked, had some some awesome spaghetti that her husband made, so yummy, I thought about it all day today!  It has been awhile since we have had time to get together, but next month we are taking a road trip to Charlotte for a convention and shopping I can't wait! I love having a chance to play with sets I don't have, and plenty of times I come home with a wish list of ones I "need"! I used the peacock set from Hero arts, and colored with copics.

This week I am going to try to get going on my quilting projects, I spent a good part of Saturday at a local quilt store getting my pattern together. I love looking at patterns and books for inspiration but find that I usually end up just figuring out my own pattern. The challenging part is the measurements and amount of fabric I need. Thank goodness the woman who owns the store she is awesome at figuring that out. I now have the pattern and all the fabric to do a quilt for Wyatt's big boy bed he will move into early this fall. Then I got all the stuff to do the baby quilt in lavender and greens. I can't wait to get started I just need the energy to get them done!


  1. Love the great coloring with the copics. I had fun yesterday too and can't wait for our road trip!

  2. Lovely card, Tanya! You colored the peacock with such pretty shades of blue and green! Love the embossed background too!
