Current and Coming

Current:
A couple new colorways for a pair of existing designs. I added these to my shop today.

Coming:
A new pattern. I"m releasing my newest sewing pattern, Color Wheel Coasters and Pot Holders, next Thursday. Since I'm always up for a celebration, the pattern release is in conjunction with a giveaway sponsored by the lovely Wendy over at The Fabric Quarter. She sent me these amazing Moda Cross Weaves to play with and this is what I came up with. You have got to touch these fabrics. They are extraordinarily soft and they seem to shimmer. The colors are so rich that I knew the minute I opened the package I was going to do something based on the color wheel. Though, and don't judge us because we're Mac people, when my youngest daughter saw the coasters she didn't see the color wheel, but that holding pattern icon that spins around when the Mac is processing a new command.
No matter, icon or wheel, I'm super psyched about sharing this pattern with you, so check back here on Thursday, February 24, for a chance to win fabric, a copy or two of the pattern, and even a recipe. Because, what's the point of crafting kitchen items to adorn your pots and pans if you're not going to make something to eat?

Nice, nice, nice! I cannot wait to see those fabrics.

I know I won't have a chance to win because you'll have so many comments by the time this closes, but the color wheels you've come up with are wonderful! Now that I dye my own fabric, and do my own batik, thanks to your book Color Your Cloth, I've been able to dye my own color wheels and dye yards and yards of fabulous fabric. Thanks for making the whole process simple and fun!

The name of this fabric suggests it's a kind of shot cotton (different colours for the warp and uhhh the other thread , weft?) ? They look great on my screen. mvswaaij@home.nl
