Oooooh, La La!

I wanted to share the latest quilt I worked on. It was huge and absolutely gorgeous! A lady and her sister put it together for a daughter's wedding. They put these fabrics together themselves! Some people really have an eye for color.
I just had to take pictures as I worked on it. I wasn't quite done, but I took out my camera to get a few shots. The bride and groom don't know about the quilt. Won't it be a wonderful surprise?
Such a beautiful combination of colors. I personally buy kits most of the time and let someone else match combinations of fabrics for me. The two women who put this together did an awesome job.
I was sad to see this one go.
It is certainly one of my favorites! Oooooo, la la! And speaking of oooooh, la la....
Have you seen Victoria Beckham's latest hairstyle? She's there on the left with J-Lo. I almost didn't recognize her. I wore my hair short (not quite that short!) for many years and grew it out about 5 years ago. I'm still a big fan of short hair.
Ms. Beckham changes her hairstyle all the time. She said in one article, she gets bored. Her hair is famous. Daughter #2 was considering a new style recently and even thought about Ms. Beckham's famous "Pob" style. Ultimately, she didn't go that short, but the sunglasses really complete the look, don't you think? Speaking of the Beckhams, Daughter #2 is a huge fan and she and her husband attended a Galaxy match recently. Too bad, Becks wasn't there that night. Oh, well, this was about as close as she could get to him...a cardboard cutout! LOL

Definitely a WOW quilt! Just gorgeous! That bride and groom will certainly love snuggling under it! 8-)
I've had my hair even shorter than Victoria there... brush-cut, and I loved it!! Letting the hair grow now though... 8-)
Happy stitchings!

We are making quilts tomorrow as a RS. Your's is much nicer than the quality we will have. :o)

I had the Posh hairdo recently and it was lots of fun. I did have to style it everyday - which got old quickly - but it was worth it for a few months. Daughter 2 looks great.

I LOVE Posh's new do! I really think it works, but just for her. Hopefully more people don't cut their hair like it!

I'm with you...Oooooooooh La La! Love that and I must agree they sure did know about choosing fabric. As for haircuts and Posh....it is all a silly fad and I truly believe the next one coming is from the new show called, "Kat and Kim." (vice versa) The hairdressers are getting request for that short do already. You can see clips on the web.
