Flamingo Lounge is done, but I doubt if I get it quilted before our retreat. I sure hope all those wrinkles quilt out! LOL That' s the biggest applique that I have done yet. I think it will quilt out, I was able to smooth out the wrinkles, but wanted to get the picture. I sure had fun doing Tonya's letters! I'm anxious to try many, many more! By the way, many were curious about the pattern. It's called "It's a Zoo in Here" by Marilyn Dorwart. I checked her website and it said it's closed. I bought the pattern at a quilt shop in Pawley's Island, SC, Island Threads. I know they have more, or at least they did.
This is what I'm contributing towards the cause. I had the black T-shirts with pink lettering made. I came up with the design and had them embroidered. Too cute! The pink boas (which are actually that poodle haired fleece torn in strips!) are going to be used every time we take a stretching break. When I turn on the Mambo music, everyone has to put on their boa and we'll do a mambo line around the room. Corny, I know,but it gets everyone up and moving. I can't sit for very long yet, so it will be good for me too. I made place cards for everyone and embroidered the top of the pincushion/threadcatcher bags we are going to make. (I have the pattern on my website). I also found flamingo fabric to make my pajama bottoms. Taking pink and white candles and of course, my beanie baby Flamingo. We have found a lot of cute things we could do, but the cost makes it prohibitive. If anyone has any ideas, let me know!
Our theme started to be doing everything in pink/black/white. Somewhere along the way, we added the flamingoes to the mix. So now it's gotten zany! All of our tableware is going to be pink--someone found pink toilet paper and we are on the quest for any pink food!
