I finally got down to business and made a "gnome home" for the Incredible Shrinking Quilters' Bee for Sharon. My daughter helped by drafting up some house plans.
Her teacher would've been impressed with her application of geometry.
Ultimately, we concluded that any decent gnome would live in a tree:
I found myself with an extra hour Thursday afternoon before I needed to pick my daughter up from school and made a trip to Beverly's.
They had quite a lot of Heather Ross' Lightening Bugs fabric line scattered throughout the store. It kills me though, that they don't group fabrics by designer lines, or at least don't do a good job of it, so one has to literally go through the entire stock when looking for specific fabrics. But I digress. I picked up the dogs in ochre, a yard and it was priced under $9 - I've seen this print on etsy at grossly inflated prices. It coordinates with the dots and plants (I have a vast amount of this). I picked up the brown brint, a repro from Marcus Bros., I thought it coordinated with the ochre.
Now, I'm not sure what I want to do with my collection. I may be convinced to do a "giveway" or swap in the near future .....
