R U MAD about RUFFLES too?…Day 1

 RUFFLES….an odd word when you break it down….RUF ( as in rough or Rolf as in what a dog does) and yet here we are TALKING- STITCHING-QUILTING Ruffles…Ruffles are soft, delicate, feminine…..I am MAD about RUFFLES !


some ruffled projects f the past…
un petit pot…a stool for the powder room!


My obsession as shared with you in the past came from watching Flamenco dancers with their heavily ruffled trains….I was in Spain at the time and at boarding school and I was always thinking of ways to add ruffles to the hems of my slips, socks, under "T's"… Now spin forward decades later and I'm still obsessed with anything and everything RUFFLES.  Take where I am  this morning- sitting here with my Mac this morning in my temp office upstairs, glancing around and note that ruffles seem to appear at every glance…ON my Oven MITTs ( my oldest recently added gingham ruffles to a lovely pair of red mitts) I have a stool whereby my feet are perched…( being so short, I need to have them resting somewhere) I have a pillow behind my back, yes ruffled…
I note a few Tammy BAGS ready for a photo shoot…YEP ruffled….The tablecloth on this table…yep ruffled…. I am wearing a long skirt, yep ruffled, my under cloths all have ruffles on them…

So it does seem TIMELY that one of our HOPs would be about RUFFLES…
Amy our cheerleader for this hop was not realllllly a ruffled kind of person…
but that may have changed…She has been ruffling many of us
with her cheers and inspiring personality…

And she has gathered some RUFFLED Enthusiasts too…

Let's see WHO will have you RUFFLED TODAY?
Do cheer them on….you will have ruffled their hearts with pure JOY! 

March 5th

A perfect beginning to a ruffled week…

would just be grinning from ear to ear…I say start them off young..
goodness knows where ruffles will take them someday wink….



and WOWED us in CREATIVITY

  21. I really enjoyed the first day of this hop. I am slowly being converted to a ruffle fan. The shirring on the one quilt and the white Kona strip ruffle pillow have me completely charmed. If I had a little girl in my life, I would be totally over the edge! Those dresses were great, weren't they?

  27. We are off to a RUFFLED start! Fabulous RUFFLES today! And I'll raise my hand for sure! I've had enough!!! (Any snow is too much for me!) I've been in MO at my parents for almost a month and I'm tired of being cold. I'm headed back to Texas on Friday and it won't be soon enough! Can't wait to see what else is RUFFLED up for the rest of the hop.
