I was changing out a couple of designs on my website and found this old piece I sold several years back. I think it is so simple and sweet. I also thought I would share this other design of sheep that was always one of my favorites and one of my first designs. It also has a sweet simplicity to it. I am constantly trying to balance staying loose and fresh and hoping to be marketable (so I can make a living) at the same time. When I look at my old work I am a little jealous of how much easier it was for me to stay loose (as ridiculous as that might sound - being jealous of oneself). The more time you spend creating art for clients the more accomodating your style can become. On one hand it can be looked upon as a small space to dance in, on the other hand you have to stay on your toes. I don't think I always succeed at this.
Next week, in celebration of my fabrics finally hitting the retail shops, I will be giving away a free little goody that was sewn with some of the On A Whim fabrics. I will do a drawing. Just a way for me to say thanks for all the kind comments and e-mails I have been receiving. I can't begin to say how much all this support has meant. I also bought a 1940's vintage apron pattern and had a couple of aprons sewn with the farm prints from A Cow Says Moo. So please check back for some photos of those as well.
