Have you all heard about Celebrate Color?
It's a 3 month long celebration celebrating color and a contest too! There are 4 categories: Fabric (Home Decor), Fabric (Wearables), Yarn, and Needlepoint that you can enter with some great prizes offered to the 1st and 2nd place winners.
I was too wrapped up in wedding sewing in September. And October felt like it was over before it started. But November...I've been doing fall sewing and some of it is quite colorful. So, I'm giving it a whirl.
I mentioned in the post about BK's Chez Ami outfit that I'm trying to use up my stash of knit prints while the little girls' will still wear them. The girls' newest top uses an apple print and a brown & green stripe, both from Chez Ami.
Once again, I used the "Anemone Stripes" pattern from Ottobre Design (04/09 #21). It's a fun pattern to use when mixing and matching fabrics. In the magazine it's dubbed a tunic but I found the top to be a regular length.
M was so excited this morning that the temperature had dropped (upper 70's yesterday to low 50's overnight and still dropping) so that she could wear the new top to school. Me, not so much, I'll take the warm weather every day!
