It’s September 15. You know what that means?
Cue the Bon Jovi, ” Ohhh, we’re halfway there….”
Yep, half of 30 is 15.
I’m not going to lie to you. This challenge can be difficult at times. I have a lot of projects in the works, but not all, hell, not most, are ready to be photographed. And, though I had that handy little cute story for Friday’s post without pics, I probably can’t get away with that too often.
Sometimes I have to wake up super-duper early to make sure I’ve finished up what ever it is I’m planning on featuring here.
That can be difficult, but it pays off.
Check out what I saw this morning:
Try to imagine it without the telephone wires and it’s even prettier. Also, why in 2014 do we still have telephone wires above ground?
You have to get up pretty early in the morning to see that, but it just might be worth it.
Along with taking pictures of the sky I also finished this:
I’m not exactly sure why I like this slightly odd picture. I think it has to do with having recently listened to Haruki Mirakami’s The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles and feeling a bit surreal.
Anyway, this is the second version of the dress I made last week, but this time
A. It’s made out of one of the prints from my soon-to-be-released line, Poems from Pebbles
B. I remember the pattern name and number, Simplicity 2473.
If you and I were in the same room you could literally hear me singing the praises of this pattern, practically belting out how easy, straight forward, and flattering this pattern is. Both the versions I’ve made have been in quilting cottons, but this would be terrific in linen or a beautiful Liberty of London print. Oh, man, it would look amazing in a Liberty print.
Only about six weeks until market and a little more than three before I go to film my CreativeLive class, so no new Liberty dresses for me…yet.
