A Quick Do-Over

A little mystery...

Today's post is a bit of a mystery indeed.....


If you've been following along then you can skip right down to the bottom because you probably already know what to do!

For everybody else....

Today is my day on the FQS Designer Mystery BOM Blog Hop. Each day one of us lucky ladies who designed a block for the upcoming Designer Mystery Block of the Month is showing you a little detail... a very little detail.... of something that is "Vintage Modern" and near and dear to us. Something from some part of our wardrobe! For me that is the little blur of cream and green that you see above. Can you guess what it is? All of you who guess correctly will be entered to win a Layer Cake of California Girl [courtesy of Fat Quarter Shop]!

Yup, that's right! So put on your thinking cap and start commenting. 


...this is a shot of a bundle which we have a few of here, and a layer cake is being given for this contest!!

My hints: 

I unearthed it at my favorite flea market. It matches one of my favorite sweaters. I wear it a couple of times a year at a quilt related event... just because that is one of my only opportunities to dress up LOL!



As always I had a lot of fun participating in one of Kimberly's fabulous BOMs and this one does not disappoint!

 In fact, they are always fun to participate in and to do. Do you remember this one from Strawberry Fields? I can't wait to see that one done up and quilted. A bunch of my customers and friends are working on it. Anyone close to being finished yet?

Be sure to continue on with the hop over at Laurie & Polly's blog on Monday! Who knows what they will have up their sleeve... they are a hilarious pair!


Any ideas ladies... and gentlemen too of course?



I'm guessing a necklace...such a little piece!

Looks like a bead necklace. Thanks for the giveaway.

I am going to guess that it is a necklace. Thanks.

although I don't blog, twitter,tweet, facebook, sing, or communicate via any other form than email... I just had to come here trying to see about a chance to win some beautiful fabric. I saw the picture and immediately thought glass beads strong together equals necklace... but then I had to double check because I couldn't believe it would be so "easy".... then again with everyone elses entries I suppose it won't be so easy! So best of luck to everyone and thank you, as always, Joanna for your beautiful fabrics! Becky B

Beaded necklace?

I think is a beaded necklace!

I think it must be a bracelet (vintage of course)

A beautiful necklace which looks great on you and fits well with your booth.

I'm going with necklace!!! With some gorgeous colored beads I might add!!! And I was just thinking I needed that FQB!!!!! Thanks!

It looks like beads to me so probably a necklace. Pretty colors!

I think it is a beaded necklace--sweet!

My guess is a necklace.

My guess is also a necklace

Gotta say that it's a necklace. Thanks for the chance to win your awesome fabric. It would look right at home at my house!!

I think it is a beautiful vintage necklace.

Oh everybody is guessing necklace so I am going to go with a charm hanging off a bracelet.

Thanks for a chance.

I'm guessing earrings!

My guess: a necklace

For sure a beaded necklace

I cannot for the life of me remember what it is really called but my grandmother gave me something similar to this and it hooks to the top of the sweater at the neckline to hold it together so you don't have to button the sweater..or for sweaters with no buttons...someone help me out here. What is it called. LOL At any rate I call it sweater jewelery.... Thank you for the chance to enter

I'll take a wild stab and say that it's a scarf or shawl. Be blessed!

lovely, must be a vintage necklace. loving California Girl!

It looks like a beautiful bracelet to me. At first I thought it was earrings, but there were so many beads, that my fun guess is a bracelet.

:) My guess is a bracelet! Thanks!

Looks like a lovely vintage necklace from the fifties. Love your fabrics!

My guess is a glass beaded necklace, very elegant!

I think it is a necklace. Can't wait to see the whole picture.

It does look like you could dress up an outfit with these glass beads. You said sometimes you dress up a sweater, a pair of earrings? or a lovely brooch for accent?

Those look like beads (green & yellow)& they look like they are in a neclace strand.

Gosh, this is a hard one. I am going to guess a scarf.

This is a tough one. I am going to guess a scarf.

I believe that it is a lovely necklace you found to enhance your style. I love this California line, like most all your fabric lines. It has a happy freshness and believe it or not, it reminds me of my son living in CA whom I miss.

It looks like it is a very fun necklace- I love beads and there are so many fun ways to create jewelery. Thanks for the chance to win such lovely fabrics.
Warmest regards from Western Canada,

It looks like jewellery of some sort made out of beads. Love the colours of the beads.

It looks like a pretty necklace to me.

Oh a very sweet crystal necklace, it must be wonderful to show it off!

A very delicate vintage glass necklace. So lovely.

My guess is a bracelet too. I am looking forward to finding out though

I hope its a necklace!!!!! So I can be entered to win!!! It is a beautiful color at any rate!!! It could also be glass buttons....

a necklace or glass buttons of some sort at any rate it is very pretty!!!!

My guess is a necklace. Love the colors.

I think it is a necklace, beaded. Surely not pop beads. Beads look was to nice to be pop beads I remember.
Thanks for contest

Looks like a crystal necklace!

This is very difficult. I think it it a jewerly assessory. Maybe a vintage pin for your hair, or a crystal bracket or necklace. The new BOM for 2012 looks fab.

Lovely fabric! Thanks for the chance to win. It looks like a vintage necklace.

My guess is a lovely necklace to wear to the quilt show!

I will go with necklace as its an 'it'; 2nd guess would be a sweater guard although mine were all fake 'gold'

I'm gonna guess beaded necklace. Great colors. Thanks for the chance to enter.

Maybe it is a bodkin---just kidding. I think you have found a piece of jewlery that was very near and dear to someones heart!!! It would be so wonderful to know this person and what this trinket meant to her. Maybe she was a quilter that loved yellow and green

A lovely necklace is my guess.
