Well since I'm still in "stock up on patterns and fabrics to print" phase, I thought I'd spend some time making some Christmas and/or holiday prints to have on hand just in case I ever get a bug up my mini tush to make a holiday scene/room box or house.
Some of the problems with making these fabric sheets without any projects in mind is that A) It's impossible to know how much to make for each pattern, usually I make what I need so I save ink and fabric sheet space...2) Usually I choose patterns based on the project so who knows if these will work for anything I may make in the future.....3) Sizing the patterns without a project in mind is difficult, usually when I'm working on something in particular I will adjust the pattern size based on what the fabric is being used for.... and 4) It's difficult to know when to stop making them...I have nothing but time on my hands right now, so based on how long on average it takes me to make each page (which BTW is 2 or 3 pages per hour)...I could make A LOT this week :)
Well with no further ado...here are some Holiday fabric sheets
Wouldn't the smaller circles be great holiday coasters?
I'm not joking...I'm currently going out of my mind!!!!!
I have now been in Montreal for a week, I do believe I've seen everything here that I care to see,
the weather is starting to get cooler (I was ok with a high of 60, even when it felt like 50...
but I'm not so happy about 40's and 50's!) and unless something changes, I'm going to be stuck here for another 5 or 6 days!
So what does that leave me with?
Hour after hour sitting in a hotel room working on computer projects.
So far I've managed to get up to date with choosing my pictures for 2013 that make my 2013 album, I've even uploaded most of them to the album, but honestly I'm just not 'into' it right now (I use Picaboo for my albums...just in case your curious). I also do have 1 or 2 other computer related projects to do, but dragging my feet on them also.
I have been enjoying making some pages to print fabrics though, just in case I get home at some point and decide to work on some projects that I have zero plans for at the moment :)
Anyway, I was thinking about halloween yesterday while trying to figure out what to do with my afternoon, and it got me thinking about making some halloween fabrics, which I'm working on, but I think there is a day coming up that would be appropriate to share those on. Any how, it got me thinking of other themes and so I started with Autumn...and no it wasn't because it started with A, although maybe that's what I should do, make a few pages of patterns for every letter of the alphabet, that would give me something to do :)
I like the squares for making pillows, towels, napkins, etc.
These 2 patterns could be used for just about anything, not just for an autumn theme.
I'm not sure what it is about striped that get me soo excited some times, but this one I just find wonderful!
