Thanks a million for many comments on my last post!
I've already found several blogs that have introduced
my teapot pattern tutorial. (Thanks!)I am really really thrilled
to find out what you will make using the pattern.
Potholders? Tea cozy? Lunch mat? Table runner?
Wall hanging? Quilt? ... I can't wait to see them ;)
Today's post will be all about penguins.
Be prepared.. You'll see hundreds of them. maybe.
I made three penguin pincushions yesterday.
I really love the combination of Amy Butler's
fabric and this penguin fabric. They are totally
different, but it somehow makes sense when they
get together... kinda like a magic!
Just for this project, I printed the 'penguin' fabric.
I almost gasped when I found this umbrella
print fabric in my scrappy stash that I bought a long
long time ago! "Oh my goodness! I totally forgot about you!"
I knew it must become a pincushion right away.
Then the penguin block was waiting next to it.
I'm planning to make two more penguin pincushions
using the same penguin fabric...but you know what,
to tell the truth, I am getting a little bored of this.
This is extremely cute fabric, but I kinda want to
play with different penguin fabric....
So I designed this fabric. Woohoo!!
Joe's aunt Jeanette was so nice to share with
me some of her penguin pictures she took on the
Antarctic Peninsula. This penguin shape is based on
an Adelie penguin that was in one of the pictures.
I just love how super flexible penguins' bodies are.
They make me want to give a big hug, but I know in
reality they smell fishy.. who cares though.
oh how sad.. my Spring semester is starting tomorrow.
I have a feeling that it's gonna be a quite busy
semester again. Sorry if I become quiet again, but
I'll come back as often as possible!! ;)
Thanks for coming & reading!
