I have so very much to share with you! I am dying to show you a picture of a skirt I made using the Hip skirts pattern…but it is dark so the photo would not be that great. (You know, because usually my photos are all gallery quality!) And everyone is in bed, so no one is available to take a picture. Which would leave the option of taking a picture of myself in a mirror…but if it’s ok with you, we won’t go there!
Here is a picture of the material. I adore it! And to be honest, I ordered it just to make this skirt. It is from Erin Michaels. Many of you would probably recognize her sock monkey material for Moda…or at least I would! But when browsing the Moda website, (now that it’s legitimate work, my husband cant’ get mad at me!) I stumbled upon this print….and well, you can guess the rest of the story.
So be watching for that skirt picture sometime. Onto other things…maybe more important things!
You can only imagine how excited I am! Well, maybe if you love fabric too, then you can imagine. I have plans to make some fat quarter bundles, if I can just find the time before some of the prints sell out! I have not picked a favorite yet….but I will keep you informed. It is so much prettier in person!
Onto more news…..What? There is more! Well, this is kinda cheating…but when we were in Texas I was able to meet Craft Apple herself! It was wonderful. My children had a blast playing with her boys! Um, but do you think I had my camera? Of course not! Her patterns are really fun and very well written. I made a ton of them for Christmas gifts. And, yes, I sell them now too. Here’s a picture of a couple of mini patchfolios from her Sew. Create. Small Books pattern. (Minus the patch part b/c I was not being very creative) These went as gifts to my sister-in-law (a cat lover) and mother-in-law (a musician).
So there you have it for tonight! Have a great week
(and can someone tell me how to get rid of those little frames around my pictures? What part of the html code do I need to change or delete?)
