Travelling PicStitch Blog Hop

Hello There! Today is my turn on the Travelling PicStitch Blog Hop

After 5 days at Disney World last year, we came home with probably 1,000 pictures between our phones, my camera, and the Disney World photographers. And by far, this is my favorite one of them all!

I ran the picture through a palette builder and it came up with a half-dozen colors.

A trip through my fabric stash came up with a good selection of fabrics...

...Which I narrowed down to 4

... and whipped up into a diamond star.

I'm not sure what I'll do with the piece... maybe I'll add it to a pillow front.


So... want to know my super-special Disney World secret?  If your kids like to collect character autographs, forgo the blank books they sell in all of the shops and order this book RIGHT NOW!  Our book has been on 2 Disney World trips and the characters love autographing their page in the book!!  We have had the best character interactions thanks to this book... even the non-speaking characters get really excited seeing their pictures in the book.

Prince Eric asked Megan to recreate one of the pictures from his page.  Remember the scene in the movie when Eric gets washed ashore after the storm at sea breaks up his ship?  Yep... they recreated that scene.. with direction from Ariel.

Thanks for stopping by! And remember, the party goes on through the end of November, with a link up and some great prizes. And make sure you visit Deborah at Little Ms. Sew-Unsew tomorrow for her stop on the Blog Hop.

Nice star block! Are you a fellow Disney Freak? Or do y'all just go because M likes it? I'm pretty much obsessed. We went on our honeymoon, first anniversary, and our son's first birthday. And we've got a cruise booked out of Galveston for April. Did you learn about that book on the DIS boards? That's where I learned about it. It's a much better idea!

Oh how cute!!! And what a lovely block :) Looks like they absolutely made her day and I'm sure she will remember that for years to come. And so nice that you can commemorate it with something tangible.

What a wonderful travel story! And I absolutely love your star of diamonds. Maybe make a wall hanging and hang it with the inspiration photo?
