Cafe' Window

OH....what a morning it has been! Max had some testing done this morning and then off to find prizes and snacks for Will's school Easter party! Max and Luke were not very well behaved in Target, to put it mildly! I am sure everyone at Target was very glad to see us go! I wish I was sitting at that little table in the cafe' window, drinking a latte' silence! I will have to settle for a cup of joe at my kitchen table, while watching Sid The Science Kid! LOL!

I made this for the color challenge on SCS yesterday. Close to Cocoa, So Saffron and Bashful Blue. Love it! I had been wanting to paper piece that little cafe' window from Unity's March KOTM. I used the Delicate Dots DSP from SU's SAB catty. I added some rhinestones to the fringe and at the bottom. The sentiment is from Unity's Simply Said kit. The ribbon is So Saffron by SU and the brown is by May Arts.

I have had some people ask me how I tie my ribbons so the good part is in the front. I will have to try to think of how to do a tutorial on that. Hmmmm....might have to get hubby's help!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! No more snow here. It's beautiful and sunny, but only 45 degrees! I will take it over snow any day! LOL!

Oh I love this one!!!! It's so cute!

I feel for ya kids are usually behaved but my youngest tends to get out of hand sometimes and when I see him beginning to act up I make him hold my cart until he's ready to listen and he usually starts to listen as he hates being confined to mommy's cart!
