It's My Day "Rose Colored Glasses" Blog Hop

 This month Carol challenged us with a theme of "Rose Colored Glasses".

It's been a long time, but this "Moose-kateer" is back and sporting her beautiful

 "Rose Colored Glasses"

This challenge stumped me a bit, but when cleaning up some of my fabric mess once again, I stumbled on a piece of snow dyed fabric that I have been hanging onto for way too long. I love my hand dyes and crazy as it sounds, cutting into them is hard. I keep them because they are pretty, which makes it pretty silly to even bother dying fabric, if I'm not going to use it.

Snow dying frequently ends up with "Monet" looking results, so flowers just seemed to be a must.

Without further ado, let me introduce 

"Mavis the Moose"

This is a combination of a floral design from the book "Flower Show Quilts", and a rubber stamp from "Whipper Snapper Designs". It's so much fun to sit down and play with combining things.
The border fabric is also a hand dye fabric and I worked out all the the math for my quilting, to make a nice frame effect...All was well, until I had a senior moment, and cut off all that math I had done, when trimming it all up. 
Let's just say, Mavis had to plug her ears!
But that is a secret between you, me and Mavis!

A big thanks to Carol for hosting this months challenge and to all of you for visiting with us here in the MooseStash, today.

  2. Your moose is super-groovy in front of that dyed background! I love the flowers too. I wish you and yours well for the wedding!

  3. Mavis looks absolutely fabulous with those dyed fabrics and added flowers. It looks so artsy! I'm sure it was frustrating to have your math off, but it doesn't show it. I love this rosy project of yours! Thanks for sharing and have a fun wedding weekend.

  4. Love Mavis the Moose! I so need that pattern so I can make one for my niece.

  5. Congrats on the wedding celebration. These are the moments we live for! Soak up every moment. I am loving doing these hops for awhile now to the point that I can see the personality of each blogger. You have such a whimsical style and obviously, a great sense of humor. Mavis is wonderful and her eyes are ready for the summer sun! Thanks so much for sharing the hop fun with us all. Best of luck this weekend as you feel the love!

  6. Mavis is adorable, I love her to pieces. That hand dyed fabric is beautiful and I would hate to cut into it. Congratulations to your son on his upcoming wedding! Your project delights even my eye which is generally adverse to pink, although I love raspberry. Great work Joan!

  7. That moose on the snow dyed fabric looks really cool. The bright colors are really eye-catching. Congrats on your son's upcoming wedding.

  8. Love the moose, and the beautiful fabric behind her. Congratulations on Saturday's activities. What fun, what exhaustion!

  9. Mavis is marvelous! Love her against that beautiful background! One of these days you will have to tell me how you dye with snow. It is really beautiful! I can’t see any mistakes. Mavis looks perfect to me!!

  10. The snow died fabric is absolutely gorgeous ... and then to have Mavis sporting the rose glasses - perfect!
    Have a great time at the wedding!

  11. I can always be guaranteed a smile on my face when visiting your blog. How cute is Mavis. Best wishes to the happy couple on their big day. Enjoy.

  12. Oh my, does this gal have attitude or what. Just out there strolling through the garden making the best of a sunshiney day. I understand your issue regarding cutting into your beautiful fabric but it was so worth sharing it with Mavis.

  13. Mavis the Moose is adorable, and it is hard to make a moose adorable! Love the ice dye fabric. Not sure I understand what happened with the border, as I can't see any trouble with it. Enjoy the wedding!

  14. How fabulously YOU!! I agree - use that fabric don't stash it. Mavis is just dashing and love the combo of technique.

  15. Mavis the moose is fabulous and such fun. Best wishes for the wedding, I hope the weather is perfect.

  16. Mavis is Moose-riffic!

  17. Mavis is marvelous! I hope that your weekend wedding is lovely. Congratulations to the bride & groom!

  18. Love it! My mom would just adore it. My maiden name is Mushaben and a lot of people pronounce it wrong and say moose-a-ben (it is actually mus-hay-ben) My mom collects moose because of this.
