Hi all! Apologies for the radio silence, but sometimes life gets away from me (crazy landlady ... searching for new housing ... getting off my arse for a writing date with Ali which means writing the story that has eluded Draft One for five years now ... visiting with friends ...)
Without further ado, a couple little prezzies for people who participate in Challenge: Ridiculous:
Prezzie #1: Navy-ness. I have, for your consideration, two yards of navy linen (prewashed, I hope you don't mind!) plus fabric covered buttons and about 8 feet of bias tape, all made with leftovers from my Fauxbetto. I think this would make something lovely, classic, or quite possibly out-and-out ridiculous, depending on how you run with it. Either way, I think the yummy linen deserves a proper home (seeing as it may take me years, if ever, to use it), so I'm sending it off to a happy home in the blogosphere!
Prezzie #2: Bright and Cheery. I present here some lovely Anna Maria Horner voile and some thrifted fabric. I think I have about 2 yards of the middle fabric and the one behind it is a pillowcase -- I think it would make a lovely accent for the middle fabric, embellishment possibilities abound! For full disclosure, there is a small rectangle cut out of one end of the pillowcase, I'm not sure why. Wouldn't it make a great 60s or 70s ensemble with an elegant (voile) scarf? I don't know but I think somebody out there should show me how great it can be!
So! Make something for Challenge: Ridiculous!!! Just leave me a comment or drop me an email with what you've made, and you'll be in the running for a random drawing for a package in the mail! Come now, who doesn't love getting something in the mail?
And lest you think I've abandoned the challenge entirely, here's a sneak peek of my latest FO ...
Hehehe ... I'm pretty excited about this one ...
