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 8x12 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.
