The fabrics are by Art Gallery, and are the softest cottons since Liberty of London!
The pattern is one I picked up somewhere along the line- either at one of the major shows, or from a magazine ad. Note it says you can use fat quarters? I bought the collection of fabrics in a half yard pack, and figured they would be perfect. They have been waiting and waiting until yesterday. That's when I found yet another designer who thinks fat quarters are bigger than they really are. Needless to say this is not the first time I have had this problem- and not only with a garment pattern. 18 x 22 isn't very big. And many of them aren't even 22 inches wide!
Check out the picture from the fabric layout page:
Meanwhile, I finally finished another page in my coloring calendar.
I haven't done much coloring since I started making the ornaments, and really enjoyed getting back to it. I have to get better at backgrounds, though.
I did this one at work one day when I had no work and no boss.
I had only a few comments on last week's entry and one didn't want to be in the drawing as she is making her own ornament and needs the incentive to finish. :-) So both of the other ladies will get an ornament! Like I said before- the fun for me is making them! Although seeing a picture of Paula surrounded by them made me "need" a lot more than I have.
No long rant or advice this time. Just this quote:
