miss leslie has really been rockin' the challenge titles over at shopping our stash lately and this week she's got another goodie for us in the form of "wooden it be nice" for which we'd like to see... waiiiiiit forrrrrr iiiiiiiiiiiiiit... wood grain or wood veneer items somewhere on your project! woohoo! here's what i made:
there is some pretty impressive stash-usage here because the little wooden hearts have been sitting in a drawer, in the packet, unopened for... ok, i think possibly since before we moved which is getting on for 2.5 years now. yeah. i needed a push, lol. with regard to woodgrain paper, that's a whole different story, i go through that stuff fast, because somehow it just always looks good. as always when i am paper piecing or mixing patterned scraps i wind up with waaaaaaaaaaaaay too many pieces of whatever the central element is-- in this case it was punched hexagons--. i had a ton leftover, i had another small square of the woodgrain paper and even some additional wooden hearts; plus this cool "XOXO" from a totally different, also un-opened pack of wooden thingies. in these cases i generally think to myself, "i should really make another card to use these up" and then put everything away and move on to the next project. but this time i thought that and actually did it. go, me!
there are many fine wooden-centric designs awaiting you at SOS, won't you give yourself a treat and check those out right now? you can thank me later, darlings! ♥
