Life’s a beach.
It feels like it’s been work in progress Wednesday for eternity around here. I can’t even remember the last time I had a finish, but I am chipping away at several projects at once. One of those which I am really excited about is my Diva Alphabet pattern. I just sent out a request for pattern testers to the Glitterati Army. If you’re not part of the Glitterati Army and you need to be, send me a message so I can add you to the mailing list. My goal is to have this pattern available for purchase in early 2016, so I’ll gladly take the small steps towards a finish for this one! The
bitch beach below was made using Kim Andersson’s (iadorepattern) Tidal Lace collection, combined with Kona Celestial. It all started from some leftover 1.5″ HSTs. Yeah, I know.
The other project taking up so much of my precious time is a take on my Twisted Elegance pattern. Its working title is Twisted Butlers because I’m using my full range of David Butler / Parson Grey fabrics (finally). I keep playing with the colour order using Adobe Illustrator, but Lord Latifah, I think I need to just start sewing! I might live to regret it, but I really need to be sewing by the seat of my pants on this one and just see what happens! For the background I’m using Art Gallery Pure Elements Linen White which has a creamy tone that is complimenting the natural tones of the other fabrics.
I’m not expecting a finish any time soon, but I’m completely okay with that. I’m enjoying exploring the patterning process, which will hopefully allow me to interact with this amazing community in a whole new way! Plus, Mr. Sparkles really really really finally finally finally wants a quilt. Yeah, I know.
