I didn’t get Carl all finished last night, but I did get back onto him this morning, and here he is, in all his glory. I think he looks a little shy though…
I believe Joanna is hoping to have this in her shop in the next couple of weeks, and I’ll let you know when he’s available :o)
Given my self-imposed weekend split between things for me and things for anything else, I spent the afternoon cutting out my Retro Flowers for the QAL – I don’t count this as a thing for me BTW, if I’m having to follow anything but my own patterns or whims ;o) Also, it already has a destination!
Anywho, here are the fabrics I chose. I’ll be doing a 3 x 3 baby size with these, with a grey in the centre and at each corner, and an aqua filling in the gaps. I totally mixed and matched my lines here, so I have different shades and patterns, but I think they work okay overall.
I had ordered the pattern and templates waaaay back at the beginning of January as part of the Curves Class with Rachel at Stitched in Colour. As a class member, we got a discount on the pattern, and even though I had no idea what to use it for, I can never resist a good sale ;o) Happily, along popped Bianca from Sweet Diesel Designs and Megan from City Stitches with their Retro Flowers Sew Along recently, so I had an excuse to actually get going! Bianca’s become my own personal
nag cheer leader (I think this is payback for volunteering to nag Allegory and Jen ;o) ) I’m a teeny bit behind, but I hope I can catch up in time to enter the comp. So far today I’ve cut out the petal pieces, so after dinner I’ll tackle the background and I might try sewing a little tonight, but tomorrow is mine, all mine My Precious, bwahahahahahaha.
Hope everyone’s enjoying their weekend so far :o)
