You know you're tired of Winter when all you can think about is redecorating the house. As I have been working with Amy Butler's bright fabrics for tea party chairs and bags this Fall and Winter, I mentioned to Rory that I would love to redo the house in bright fabrics. He laughed. I think he had a vision of everything turning into bubble gum and tea parties, like this chair I made for Gabrielle.
Sometimes I will leave a couple of my bags on a chair to get him used to the idea. (The chair in the upstairs hall is perfect for that.) He'll come around. By the time I actually redo things, it will be his idea ; ) ...but don't tell him I planned it that way.
This boring couch is going to get redone in a bright green crypton herringbone for the base. Then, for the back, each pillow will be unique and colorful, something like this beauty from Stitch in Dye. Next to it on the wall, I've got room for new art too, like this poster from Strawberryluna.
I'm having fun using poster sketch to look at fabrics and art together. Okay, all done dreaming and planning for today. I have got to get that next pattern out or people will start to think I don't really sew or make patterns, I just blog.
