Fabric Calling My Name

Last month, my sister-in-law, Linda gave me some Hollie Hobby fabric which I sent to Jenny. She used it to line a tote bag. I thought of a project I would like to make out of similar fabric and went shopping on Ebay.

I had to buy this fabric, it seemed so familiar. About 37 years ago, I took a decoupage class and made the following plaques.

While looking on Ebay I found another piece of fabric.

This fabric just called out my name.

Darling fabrics. I just listed Hollie Hobby patterns for sale from my mom. One lady was thrilled to find I had one because she can now finish the embroidery she started when she was 9 years old.

That was absolutely calling your name Mary. How fun. I love Holly Hobbie. I have some old Holly stuff too. And I did similar decopauge with my sisters ages ago. Fun. I know some people don't like her or sunbonnet sue but I do.
