Fun with green vegetables!

Oh my goodness - I've never had this much fun with green vegetables before! I got my copy of the String Beans pattern by Stephanie at Loft Creations on Tuesday and couldn't wait to play with it. These blocks sew up very quickly and you can't stop at just one.



I had this polka dot background fabric sitting on my cutting table. It is called The Pixie Pops and is from Timeless Treasures. The other fabrics are from my stash. The plaids are Mary Lou Weidman fabrics.



As I was sewing these blocks together I got to thinking how green vegetables have never been on my list of favorite foods, and I have two sons who turn their noses up at almost anything green. I use to tease when they were kids that the only green things that knowingly passed their lips were green popsicles and green M&M's - LOL!

Ok - off to do some errands and then hopefully some time behind my sewing machine. Hope you have a great weekend!

Happy stitching!
