tilda's happy campers

our happy campers yardage has arrived and it is every bit as summer-infused as we imagined it to be.

soft honey hued prints cozy in next to pink and rose, blue, eggnog, green and teal…luscious florals, gingdots, paisleys, and mosaic type prints remind me of summers spent in flower gardens, dreaming of a vintage camper decked with sweet little curtains while snacking on pink lemonade and orange creamsicle cake with vanilla ice cream.

unfortunately it is quite chilly outside for any porch sitting and flower gardening…however, i’m thinking an afternoon with some Happy Campers is sure to brighten my winter blues.

i’ve been kicking around some EPP/embroidery pillow ideas…right now though i’m focusing on the Pastel Primrose Garden i’ve been crazily working on…just 45 more flower to put on…hopefully i can be finished by the end of the week…then be sure to look for the pattern.

speaking of embroidery…with all the thread stories, collections, packs, tins, boxes, and such…i cannot find a pack of Tilda’s inspired threads. Tilda had a collection of thread basics 10 years ago…but nothing recent, so i pulled out a couple tins and set to work on putting together DMC perle cotton tins for both Old Rose and Happy Campers.

Old Rose-Inspired Tin…Here. Happy Campers-Inspired tin…Here.

as for Happy Campers…it has been tucked in with Old Rose and Angel Scraps…i’m thinking a move-around sometime in the near future…so it is a little more front and center.
