Penny Lane...

"Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes..." Be thankful my blog doesn't have sound - you really don't want to hear me sing. Did you know I'm a huge Beatles fan? I probably know every one of their songs by heart. As a preteen in the sixties, I sang and danced to all their music, over and over and over again. It's what we did for entertainment with no video games or internet.

I love everything that Riley Blake puts out and since this line was called "Penny Lane", it was calling my name.

I love this print with the retro numbers and letters.
So pretty! I'm going on retreat next month (yeah!) and I'll bring this along to make Pocket Full of Pinwheels. It will be an easy, mindless project - so I don't have to concentrate too much and can enjoy the banter!
Girls, don't be surprised if you hear me singing as I sew "and the fireman rushes in, from the pouring rain, very strange"...

  7. It was to Chicago and Grande Funk Railroad in front of the big picture window in the living room that I sang and danced for hours. Watching my reflection, but for sure when no one was home. I used a yardstick at times, sort of a hat and cane dance thing goin' on...
    Penny Lane looks awesome, haven't seen it in stores yet.
