Tell me if you’re getting bored…! Sorry, making stuff seems to be all I’m doing at the moment – other than cleaning in preparation for a Big Party this weekend…
Today I used the lovely stuff from River Fabrics that I wrote about on Monday to make this Art Wrap, a commission for my friend Lynda.
Lynda chose Hugs and Kisses in Candy (from Anna Maria Horner’s Loulouthi) for the outer fabric, and I chose Curated Bloom in Fun Blue from the same collection, for the accent colour on the pocket binding and the ties. Janette from River Fabrics helped me with a choice of co-ordinating solid from the Kona line.
I *always* feel stressed about commissions because there’s an issue, I think, if what you make does not quite match up to the customer’s original idea. Hope this one lives up to expectations..
I think there are 15 of us signed up for the Scrappy Christmas Swap so far – there’s still time to join in if you’d like to, sign-ups close on Friday. If you’d like to join in but you’re stuck for ideas (or you just want some ideas to make for yourself!) – I’m compiling this Scrappy Christmas Ideas pinboard on Pinterest – there’s some brilliant stuff to check out and have a go at. Judging by my order book, I think I might be too busy making booties in the run up to the 25th Dec to try any of the projects, but maybe I’ll have a spare half hour on Christmas Eve… is anyone else getting Christmas panic already?
