|Broken Sugar Bowl|
Today I worked through the patterns involving broken crockery. I give you Broken Dishes, done in yellow because my dishes are yellow and Broken Sugar Bowl done in shades of orange because my sugar bowl is orange. The brightly colored Buckwheat block harkens back (I just used harkens in a sentence, holla!) to my life as a fifth grader surrounded by other fifth graders who were comic geniuses (as all fifth graders are). A syllable in my last name sounds like "Buck" so they called me Buckwheat after the Lil' Rascals character. All similarities between me and the adorable youngster from yesteryear end there. So, why the bright colors? Because that fabric is exactly the kind of fabric that would have made my fifth grade bad self swoon. I had taste back then, oh yes I did.
