Island Batik Give Away

When I received my Sugar Collection from Island Batik…

… the first thing that came to mind were all the beautiful Texas sunrises and sunsets that I’ve seen. They match perfectly don’t you think!?!?

So I whipped up two pillows for the guest bedroom. The photo sits on the bed side table.

Sunrises. I'm a morning person!

Kathy E. said...

I've always been a sunset lover. There's nothing sweeter (at least to me) than sitting on the deck after a long, stressful day with my husband to watch the beautiful colors in the sky. It's so relaxing!

Peggy said...

Sunsets are my favorites - I don't get up in time to see the sunrise, but I've seen lots of sunsets.
Thanks,
Peggy

Allison CB said...

I love sunrises - I am out with the dog for her morning break - always a wonderful way to start the day!

Cheryl said...

I love them both, but have seen far more sunsets than sunrises. But Sunrises mean the start of another day instead of the end..so I would choose sunrises, I guess. Love your pillows.

Mokki said...

I love sunrises and sunsets, the colours are amazing.

Her Indoors said...

Sunsets are my thing. The house where I grew up faced West and we had 18 years of fabulous sunsets. I was at university on the Welsh coast, which faces West, and is famous for its sunsets.

I'm more the sunset type although I'm almost always up for sunrise nowadays. Thanks for offering a give away.

Margaret White said...

Although sunsets are beautiful, I like sunrises because it's usually so quiet and peaceful outside at that time of the day.

I love morning sun rises...
a promise of a beautiful day

GranChris said...

I like both but I see the sunrise everyday in my sewing room so that's special to me.

Karen Felton said...

I'm rarely up early enough to see a sunrise. I'm a night person so sunsets are best.

SewDoUQuilt said...

They both are beautiful, but usually the sunset will be more of a showstopper. jarvenpa1ne at gmail dot com

Melissa said...

I like sunsets best. If I'm seeing the sun rise that means I have been up too early or stayed up too late!

Lisa Marie said...

Both can be beautiful and I love to photograph them. I am a morning person though, so I'll say sunrises are my favorite.

Diane Beavers said...

Sunsets YES!
Needless to say Orange is my favorite color and I get to see so many variations of it each night. Thank you for sharing:)

Dody said...

I love sunrises and sunsets. Sunsets have to be my favorite though. It's a very peaceful time.

I love sunsets! The colors are just amazing. I like sunrises too, but miss them too often. Sunsets are easier for me to catch.
