Chalk talk with us #3...psssst it it a secret wink.

This CHALK Talk is a secret....
what is not a secret is I am doing the quote in an ivory to match the box
and some red for the pulses in the quote..

We are onto the next one...I just traced it yesterday and well
on my way already...

Cori is doing a different version...WE always include
2 patterns in every Chalk Talk with us
an 8x 10 and 5 x 7 of both quotes..

This is a quote I hear often...and will be adding it to this memo box..
I picked up a few the other day, I was so inspired by our Europeans
ladies on how they add their beloved stitchings to boxes...
WElllll,  I  found some pretty unique boxes to try and do the same...

Ordered some braid too, to add...well you will see soon enough...

And an update on my MAY PAPER Ladies , some progress....

Those wee dots are x stitched...we show you every step...
( it really helps to have some READERS, so see those micro holes) 

She is coming along beautifully..
Certainly my fav so far....but then I always say that don't I? wink..

With our days getting much warmer, this would be a perfect outfit
for me....I always think POLKA DOTS is the summer fabric
that screams FRESH look, add some linen, wellll it is me to a T. 

I have always gravitated to POLKA dots...
I just like PRETTY! 

  This was my project last year just about this same time...
loving POLKA DOTS so much...I took this 
boudoir chair and hand sewed this quilted dotted fabric...

It sits in my office , a reminder of all the simple things in my life
that can be transformed to something even more lady like..
Coffee lovers, visit Joan for a list of lovely projects...

  1. I LOVE the chair slipcover! The little flower sets it off so well!

  2. Always an inspiring visit with you Madame Samm. I can't wait to see your box, love the colors already. Your May girl, she is so pretty. I can't wait to start mine...and I better get busy! It looks like you will have her finished up in no time at all.

  3. Cute, cute chair cover! It's always a treat to come see what you're up to. I'm never disappointed! :O)

  6. The idea of covering the box, or should I say the top?, is intriguing!

  7. The Joy I get from reading your blog posts and seeing all that you create is priceless! Love Polka Dots and the "skirted" chair. Quotes and a place to keep them close and safe is intriguing. Creative Stitching Bliss...

  8. I love the Polka Dts and can't wait to see what you create with your Chalk Talk. I remember when you covered that chair and now it looks so cute all over again.

  9. I like dots, too! I think they are good with all colors, styles and types of fabrics =)
