Forget Me Not

Whaoo!  I just ordered my fabrics for the start of the "Forget me not" BOM Mystery.  Check it out over at Esther Aliu's Blog. 

This is going to be an awesome project.
I always love everything Esther comes up with, and I've taken quite a fancy to applique since following along with the last two projects.

It took me awhile to pick out my colors.  I have always had a love for olive greens, soft creams, peaches, pinks, mauve's and florals.  But my furniture is a mismatch of old hand-me downs and thrift store finds.

Finally I just said, heck, I have planned on getting new furniture anyway so why not go with the colors I love.

So this wall hanging will be hung in my parlor.  My parlor already has a deep green border around the base of the wall that matches the greens in this pallet perfectly.  I have one wing back chair that also matches but needs to be re-upholstered.  Now that I have my inspiration pallet, I'll be able to locate  upholstery fabric to finish my chair with.  I am going to LOVE this room when all this comes together.
