At my birthday dinner a while back, my friend B suggested that I don't limit posts to just finished projects, that I include works in progress, things that are inspiring me, music I listen to while working, and so on. I think this is where I will take this thing from now on. That'll allow more frequent posts without the terrific guilt of not having something finished to show.
SO! Funnily enough, I do have a couple pretty cool projects I want to share. A while back the BF and I decided to take a trip. There was much debate over the where and when - should we go south and escape the winter for a while, sit on the beach and drink copious amounts of wine and snuggle? Should we tuck ourselves away in a nice little Inn somewhere, drink copious amounts of wine and snuggle? Should we go to a big city and eat in amazing restaurants and see shows and shop and...drink copious amounts of wine and snuggle....? Well anyway, we finally settled on a week in Toronto as we both have very close friends there who we just don't get to see enough. A few of them have wee kiddies so I decided I'd make a little something for them.
Next, I chose fabrics. This was tough. I have tonnes of fabric ranging from bits of my old jeans, multi-colored felt from the dollar store, cute patterned broadcloth, expensive quality designs and materials and so on. I sat and looked from piles of fabric to the designs, picturing different combinations. I finally narrowed it down.
