....... before it is easy.
I'm going to Detroit on Sunday to tape the new season of Knit and Crochet Today. Quick trip to Detroit PBS where everyone is so nice and friendly. Still working on the step-outs.
This week, I put my mind to learning something new to me. I've been meaning to do this for eons. I always put it off because why? Because it was going to be hard - that is why.
It was hard - very hard but I am catching on. I've spent the past few days, when I wasn't needed at the farm, learning to design fabric repeats with Adobe Illustrator. I'm not quite there yet but it has been a fun week. I feel challenged and that is good.
My plan is to make the designs into my own fabric. They will be featured in my new book which I am working on now.
Here's the first fabric. I tried really hard to get a hand-drawn quality to it and I think I succeeded. I can print them at any scale. I still see a few more tweaks but I have to stop. It is highly addictive.
Want to learn too? I used this book which I found very helpful. I also watched some videos on YouTube by a woman named Sew Heidi.
Lots to do before my trip. Wanted to pop in before the week was over. Hope you all have had a great week.
