Liberty Wall Display

I have been up to my ears (and occasionally over my head) in pattern design this week.  Things are looking good for a pattern release on Monday though, so I’m cautiously excited about that.  I needed a mid-week break from staring at digital lines though, so I thought something quick and easy was in order.

Awhile back, I’m not sure exactly how long ago it was but I do remember a dinosaur roaming outside the window, I bought a Liberty mini rainbow bundle from Purl Soho.  I meant to copy their iconic liberty embroidery hoop wall, which I’ve since visited in person and can attest to it’s amazingness.  Here’s a couple gratuitous phone shots for you:

(that’s my kind of site-seeing right there)

I grabbed the embroidery hoops I had collected and thankfully had enough, since the likelihood of me hanging the remaining fabrics at a later date is negative zero.  I wish some were different sizes, but in our house you get what you get and you don’t get upset. 

I don’t have natural light on that wall (or anywhere), but you get the idea.  And now I have something pretty to stare at when I’m doing all that pattern-testing pressing.

Liberty prints are kinda like kids – you can’t pick a favorite.  They are all equally beautiful and special in their own right.

Happy almost Friday!  Check back on Monday to see if I have a new pattern or an excuse.  It’s really 50/50 at this point.

ps: and in case you’re wondering, no way did I cut them!  There are precious 8×12 cuts of fabric stuffed behind each hoop!  It’s a great way to display precious fabric before you figure out what to do with it.

    Mmmmmmmm, I was so happy to read you didn’t cut them. I don’t know why I felt so panicky about that, but you’ve reassured me. They add quite the bit of cheeriness!

    Oh great idea not cutting them! I have a few liberty prints that I want to hang but haven’t because I hate the though of cutting it just for that!
