Think Ruffles on Day 4!

 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 !

from last summer…a set of island stools
complete with ruffles from RBD fabric collections

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?

I love Mondays, always have and waking up to RUFFLES
well you just know it is going to be a great week..
yes you did, imaginary and creatively..
Sorry I am a tad late…I was canning some marinara this morning….

Sooooooooo who ruffled us and moved us…..?


It is pillow day in the land of Ruffles…and this being
soooo bright and such a lovely photo….welllll
Ms Charlotte, you WOWED me this morning….
That is a lot of ruffles lol…..


And MS Pat, took RUFFLED FEATHERS to new heights….don't you just love everything about this… I have noted her photos just keep getting better and better…even though the snow is in that corner..you just know SPRING is in the air…..YES let this Ruffle your feathers in SPRING!

I thought I would add a ruffled tut for a reminder too~

    It is not exactly making me want to remake his dust ruffle but I would like to try the gathering foot on my serger at some point! A new bed set up has made it almost a necessity because now I see the edge of that ugly box springs. There may be hope for me yet!
