On a brighter note .


I received my copy of Handmade v27 no5 yesterday with my project for the machine apron in it . I just love these colours they are just so pretty ! I call these colours bright pastels which is a bit like saying soft black or square circles , whatever they're called I think they're me !

On the other matter , I would like to thank all who left such supportive comments or the many who emailed me . Yes I was a little sad but life is too short to let such things take up too much of my time . I will continue doing exactly what I love to do , creating and having fun . Thankyou all.

Moving right along ....

I love these colours too...
great to here your moving on...

Pat said...

GREAT fabric for that machine mat! I just read the older post and am sorry about somebody stealing your frog pattern and claiming it as their own. That is SO wrong. Can you let the officials know at that show/market so they might not permit that person back there again??? She doesn't deserve to be selling things that are NOT her own design if she is claiming falsely that they are.

Thanks for visiting my blog, Clare. You liked my sock colors; I like this fabric! Very similar, I think.... Read your copyright post, some people are unbelievable and can justify anything, I guess.

Oh, yummy, yummy colors! Love the rick rack and buttons.

Glad you are moving on. I agree with you that life is too short to waste time worrying about someone claiming you sweet frog design.

You are a lovely lady
Have a nice weekend.

Love your bright, happy machine apron! I went back to check out your former post - naughty, naughty and not nice! It is a shame those who aren't creative can't give credit to those who are!

I've just read though your last post and am horrified... :(
You poor thing, how terrible that someone would rip your design off like that... I think your frog is just gorgeous and very original, an amazing design by an amazing designer...

Take Care

Kathy said...

This is gorgeous, I will be looking out for this magazine. Good on you for the positive attitude, too. It's great to share creativity in the online world, you inspire so many, but unfortunately there will always be those who take advantage of any situation. Just remember the majority of us... we pop in to appreciate your creativity and generousity of sharing so much of yourself. Thanks for the inspiration:)

Liz said...

clare- cannot wait to see the project. Those colors are lovely.
My blog is causing a real headache . Thanks for following.

I can't believe anyone would hijack Frances! I'm very glad they were caught out. Love the lolly colours in your bright pastels and feeling chuffed to say "I know her!" (well, I know her blog!) My machine deserves one of those. Maybe while I am having my month off. Lisa.

Clare that is the cutest little apron I've ever clapped eyes on. Love the colours, my faves also, and yes Bright Pastels sound just right.
Sorry about the copyright theft of Frances. Hope the Karma Kat swipes her.
