My BFF Sue and I had had a terrific day at Dalby (about an hour west of here) with other members of the Australian Sewing Guild and Felicity from For Frock’s Sake. We were there for a fun colour and style workshop at the home of one of the Dalby girls – Thanks, Lesley! I got quite worn out, but it was a great day. Turns out I’m NOT one colour season but a mix – there ya go!
Tomorrow we’re off on a little shopping trip to Brissy, where we’ll meet up with a friend from Pattern Review. (Hi Lynn!)
So anyway, I wanted to make something to say thank you to Sue: I don’t know if she’ll like this or HATE it, but here goes:
I think I might print this out and mount it on a cream background to give all that pattern some breathing room:
(Template:Pattie Knox SpeedByte No. 114 from DesignerDigitals; All papers and elements: Shabby Princess: Happy Go Lucky (free kit!); and I nicked the nice pic of Sue in her LBD from her blog – Probably Sue’s DH took it,so I need to credit him, too!)
What do you think? I hope this isn’t one of those layouts where I look back and cringe – for today, I’m pretty happy with it!
