http://www.crabapplehillstudio.com/index.php/vintage-tin.html it is special to me mostly because of the center scene. It wasn't on route 66 but at a gas station much like this one. My mom had stopped to get gas, and my daddy stepped out to pump gas. That was how they met. She showed me a picture in her picture tin of her old 57 Chevy pulled up to the gas station, and although I DO NOT know cars at all, I think it looks ever so much like this photo. So I am going to stitch this up just like this with one exception. The car in the center is going to be her baby blue. IF I could find a 57 Chevy to super impose in the scene, then I might just do that. LOL. I'll think about giving that a shot, but I'm not super creative. I've never even sewed Flying Geese before LOL. So this will be a new experience for me. I just know I HAVE to do this for my mom.
I didn't think that I had any black and white fabric in my stash. LOL. Teach me to go and check before heading to the store. I had a little quilt pack that I had bought on clearance when Walmart was changing up their stores from pre-packs back to will-cut stations. Not so sure anymore that was a good move. BUT... anyhow. I found a bundle of black and white and a few precuts that should get me started nicely. YAY! I'm so excited. I hope that this get's you all excited about this lil beauty too!!
