Extreme Makeover--Blog Edition

The word "extreme" may be, well, a little extreme. But Live a Colorful Life has a brand new look. I hope you like it as much as I do!
It was designed by the lovely Julia, who lives in...wait for it...Berlin!

How did this happen, you ask?

If you read Lily's Quilts, you will have noticed what a fabulous blog header she has.
I asked her about it and she kindly provided Julia's contact information.

Along with having her own fabulous blog header,
Julia also designed the logo for the Berlin Modern Quilt Guild.
We have emailed back and a forth quite a few times (the internet really make the world a rather small place). There may be some minor tweaks that take place over the next few days, but I'm so happy with the results so far!

So welcome to the colorful new look at Live a Colorful Life. And also look for info on a new series that will be starting soon.

In the meantime, I hope to spend some quality time in my sewing room this weekend. What will you be doing in the next couple of days?

what a fun new look! Great play on colors. Enjoy your weekend of sewing. My mom is visiting for a couple days, and then I will be doing homework - lots of sketching to work on.

I love your extreme makeover Cindy! I love color too :)
I've just come back from a nice long walk down the beach and I hope to get some sewing done this evening. Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

I love the dots too and wouldn't have made the selvage connection if it weren't for Jen's comment. Yeah, I'm "quick" like that.

Love your blog makeover. I might have to contact Julia myself....

p.s. sewing plans are to finish up my DQS10 quilt, do my Supernova QAL cutting, sew my dresden for Lily's Quilts QAL and start my VMQG challenge.

A girl can dream, right?

Very cute! One good thing about redecorating your blog is that now I see some new links to go click on that intrigue me.

This weekend I am going to try to work on my Round Robin quilt project and also go through old papers and see what we can shred.
