I can't tell you how long I've waited to get my hands on Ty Pennington! OK so it's only his fabric that I've snagged for now but you've got to start somewhere.
I ordered 2 colourways of his new range from Julie just before Christmas and it turned up yesterday. It's lovely! Masculine enough to keep men happy but in touch with its' feminine side too ;-)
I'm planning a project with these lovelies but you'll have to wait until February to see that!
While I'm on the topic of fabrics I thought I'd better show you my fab Christmas presents: Countdown to Christmas jelly roll, Little Apples jelly roll and Cosmo Cricket fat quarters....yum!
Lots of new dies for my Accuquilt Go!Baby...
...and lots of books for inspiration! How lucky was I?!
Another of my New Year ruminations involved the design of a bag pattern which might have retail potential. I'm not talking big bucks here, just a minimal amount for a pdf pattern. Today I started work on that too. I've got a very clear idea of where I'm going with this but in the meantime I'm trialling the idea on muslin. I'm not risking my precious fabrics on a prototype.
I'd love to enlist 5 pattern testers for when I've got the pattern written, so if any of you would be interested in offering your services I'd be really grateful and I'm sure there'd be a little something in it for you ;) I promise not to sulk too much if no-one has the time!
Catch you soon x
