So this morning was rather rough. I'm pretty sure my son was up about once an hour all night, and required a little bit more than quickly sticking a pacifier back in. He went down for his first nap and I crawled back into bed...usually he takes a good first nap. Twenty minutes later he was awake. This happened over and over this morning.
Then I went to the mailbox and saw that I had a package!! I won the Sew Mama Sew giveaway from Play Crafts. (Sorry for the poor photo, it was night time.) It helped the day change from not great to good.
The palette is based on a sunset photo. The team of three are working on making a tool to do this for any photo that you have. There is a beta test coming up if you're interesting in trying the tool out...you just need to subscribe to some email updates. And I'm pretty sure that there are a whole bunch of other useful tools in the works too. They have a very strong computer science background, so if you have ideas for any other techy ideas that would make quilting easier, they'd love to hear them!
So now I get to decide what to make with the fabric. Already I'm feeling stretched (in a good way) because usually I choose the design and then pick the fabrics to fit it. Now I'm doing it the other way around. But there are several ideas that are percolating.
Side note: the giveaway post is here for further details and fabric specs.
