When I hear “retro”, I think 1968. I was in 8th grade, and just becoming aware of things beyond my ken. A war was raging, the youth were protesting, girls were wearing mini skirts, boys were letting their hair grow long, and phrases like “Make Love Not War” and “Flower Power” were heard everywhere. Instead of waving to one another in greeting, we gave the sign of peace. Today’s Peace Sign Applique Block is reminiscent of the designs that graced the front of t-shirts, were appliqued to the back side of our bell bottomed jeans, and were painted on our cheeks. The block was made to fit our standard 6″ x 6″ square but it can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. The pattern for the Peace Sign Applique Block can be found HERE.
Speaking about retro things… as it turns out, March is a crazy month for both Michelle and I. I have 2 trips planned this month, and Michelle will be on vacation for 2 weeks. Although we are going to be around and posting, we aren’t going to have as much time to be crafting the next few weeks. So, we decided to go a little “retro”. Over the next 4 weeks we are going to re-post some of our personal favorite crafts. Although all our crafts can be found in our galleries, sometimes seeing a craft featured, with additional comments, may be the inspiration you need to try some of our past crafts.
We have some exciting things happening this month, including a couple of give aways with our sponsors. So, we are not abandoning you… just enjoying a little personal R&R. We hope you’ll enjoy looking back with us 🙂
