But behind the scenes - that's a different story. I sketched up three new patterns this week!
And I've figured out what fuels my creativity the most. Eating out. That's right....not having to cook makes my brain work better. I ate out three times this week, and I have three new patterns to play with. I'm telling everyone. Buy me dinner!
Here's mum on one of those evenings....remember mum, the diabetic??? Do you SEE what she's eating???
What you can't see is that she asked for extra whipped cream. She didn't want her sister to get more. These kids, I tell ya.
Anyway, today has been spent at home, quietly having a play with fabrics....
And forgetting to reverse my templates, and having to trace, cut and fuse all over again, as usual. The templates in the pattern will include the reversed version as well, pinkie-promise.
One of my new patterns is a stitchery. It will be colored with crayons, and I'm thinking of doing a tutorial here on the blog. What do you think, would you like to see a tutorial on using crayons?
I'm having a problem with marking it, none of my usual pens are working properly, so I'm waiting for a pen to arrive from Dick Blick. We have a few of their stores near me, but none of them carry the Zig Millennium pens in-store, you have to order online. Jenny from Elefantz uses them in her stitcheries, and I'm anxious to try them!
Tomorrow is more playing with applique for me - how will you spend the day?
