"Makes Me Happy" Number 27

Hello,

"Happy Monday" to you all. A bit later posting today, had a awful smell in the fridge which meant finding the culprut. Who new that a piece of carrot and some yucky stuff under the veggie crisper could smell like that. All clean now so that makes my happy! Gosh I must be desperate if that is what makes me happy today but you know what I mean. Onto what is making me happy today. Over the weekend I found this fabulous website that makes your photos into quilting patterns. The Victoria and Albert Museum has a Patchwork Pattern Maker which in three simple steps turns photo's like mine above into
a pattern right before your eyes. How cool is that. I had a play around and made some with photo's of my sunflowers which turned out so real. You have a choice of how many colours you can have in your quilt. Even if you never get around to doing them it is inspiring to watch what could be done if we had a few more days in the week.
I hope you all have a very Happy Monday.
Bev C

Getting rid of a bad smell always makes for a happier day. That rose pattern is amazing. Bet you make something using that pattern maker before the month is out!!

That looks like so much fun. You could do portrait quilts like that I'm sure.

Hi Bev, Glad you found the culprit in the fridge! Mind you having to clean out the fridge takes away from any crafting time...not on! lol. Great find with the website that transforms flowers into quilt patterns. Kind regards, Anita.
