Thank you for all the kind comments and emails I have received after my last post. I have to tell you that I am in pretty good mental and emotional health after finally making the decision. Two months ago? Not so much... but I didn't want to bore you with those details!
But I am excited about the opportunities that brings about and can't wait to spend more time on this blog and on creative projects. I'll be able to get to it towards the end of March, I promise!
I'm making a conscious effort to re-enter the web world-- blogs and twitter. (I have kind of ignored Facebook, but I'll get back to it eventually. Sorry Facebook, you just aren't as interesting to me. Not the people, the format. Not linear enough for me, I guess.)
So around the webs this week, I found some cool things that I'll recycle here. Hey, I can't come up with the good stuff all the time!
Jan over at Daisy Janie followed Jessica's and Stephanie's blog leads and showed how she went from the doodle on the left to the design on the right. Very fun to see what a quick sketch can turn into.
If you haven't been following Kim's posts on fabric pattern types at True Up, you are so missing out. She has been posting examples of one-way, two-way and four-way patterns. That is something I look at all the time, but never had the terminology and can never find examples when I need them.
Several of Heather Ross's great prints are now available on Spoonflower! You can order them on anything from an 8" x 8" test switch to continuous yardage. You can also get it printed on five different cloths, including quilting weight to a linen/cotton canvas.
Enough already. I've got to ease back into this blogging thing!
