Greetings Everyone!  It's another wonderful Design Wall Monday and I've been very busy with a couple of projects. Please take the time to visit Judy's blog to see what other DWM participants are up to.

"What, I'm Cup Is Empty?"
This is my latest mug rug to be given away in the near future.
This is the way I look some mornings when there's no coffee....LOL
this barn block is dedicated to my blogging friend, Gari.
Her comment to me the other day was, "Where's the round barn?" She grew up with round barns and have great memories of them.
Thank you Gari for challenging me and taking me out of my small box and comfort zone.

I decided that I had to make a roundish barn. The background needed to be special. I chose 3 fabrics; light gray (at the top), a very light green (middle) which I sewed in at an angle so that when I place the barn on top it will lend an amount of depth to the overall block and a speckled white-ish brownish gray....did everyone get that description......LOL

I saw a barn on the Internet that had a rocky bottom so I was very interested in that look.
I found the perfect fabric at the bottom of one of my stash piles (love it!!!!)
As it went together, I was happy with each fabric choice. BTW, all fabrics came from my stash and "no" the pile has not diminished on bit.......sigh.

I was fairly happy but the sky needed something so I added birds. Now I'm a happy camper!!
What do you think??
Remember, you are free to copy my barn designs. You may also enlarge or shrink them to suit your needs.

Cute mug rug. Your round barn is awesome!!! It is so realistic looking! When DH and I first moved to our town 22 years ago, there was a round barn about 15 minutes from us. It was always my favorite barn.


Don't count the days, make the days count!
