t's Friday, which means that we get to see the redwork quilt project come to fruition tonight. I thought I would make a quick skirt to wear using some of the fabric I printed earlier in the week with my signature circles. I used Simplicity pattern 2906 - basic pencil skirt with a side split, made out of natural 100% irish linen from Clegs. I've included a couple of pics from the printing process, which wasn't totally successful because I had too many fine lines, but I like the rustic result anyway! It was also a bit of a lesson for me in pattern repeats, which was great for testing the old brain out!
Do you like the ornate "I" at the start of this post? It is the work of typographer and illustrator Jessica Hische who has created the The Daily Drop Cap project. Each day she posts "a new hand-crafted decorative initial cap for your enjoyment and for the beautification of blog posts everywhere." I found Jessica's work via the How About Orange blog - thanks!
Looking forward to meeting lots of bloggers tonight! Have a great weekend!
