I changed my mind....

I really liked the colors I chose for the stocking before. I thought they were rich and warm and felt aelrly Christmas-y, and I really liked how much the white cat popped off of that dark background.

But I don't know. It just didn't seem like something for a little girl. So I revised it and this is what I'm sticking with!!

Friday Night Crafts....

So, I went to a crazy crafting party at Sister Nancy's Friday night. Eeeeek. We made scary (not spooky--SCARY) ornaments.

Sister Nancy, Kym, Me. Getting crafty--woo!

I also got to talk to a bonafide quilter yesterday! She gave me some advice...


I'm dreaming of a WOO Christmas...!

Progress continues on the stocking. I was going to go to the fabric store to pick my fabrics for the stocking yesterday, but I became really unsure of myself and my ability to pick colors without seeing them put together in their final fashion. So I instead spent the afternoon on the computer, in Photoshop, putting to gether a color comp. I will now (or soon) go to the store and have this to refer to while I'm picking fabrics.

Forgive the messiness. I was only thinking of colors, not neatness.

I was constantly torn between needing to have a Christmas color scheme--- you know, red, white and green and very deep, rich colors--- and the knowledge that this is going to a little girl and wanting it to be bright and playful. The Christmas scheme won, but the little white kitty POPS so much, I think the cuteness is still strong enough for a little girl.

--oh, and that won't be the final font for the name.
