Sunday Stash - A Little Charley Harper

Thanks goodness I was not one of the many bloggers who put themselves on a fabric diet this year.  I knew if I had, I would be breaking that resolution early in the year!



And what is my first fabric purchase of 2014?  Why some Charley Harper of course!
(I have been patiently waiting for these lovelies to start appearing.)

Not sure what these will become but for now, I am just enjoying them as they are!

I have been a long time fan of Charley Harper's artwork.  I am always getting out his books and dreaming of someday creating a quilt using his art as inspiration.  This one is one of my favorites!

And his mosaic murals...They are almost a quilt-by-numbers!



I'll leave you by sharing one of my favorite pieces that hangs in my sewing room - It always makes me smile just looking at it!
