Sometimes I'm a bit dozey!
Like when I finished the fantail pattern and kidded myself that I had sent it to my pattern testers.
After a couple of weeks I began to panic- both testers seemed really keen and I was a bit surprised that neither of them had got back to me. Maybe they were too polite to tell me that my pattern was useless...
Time to piece a fantail myself-
The pattern works (although I did decide to tweak the pattern a little bit after making it up)
I have to say that yet again I am torn about my fabric choices for this block.
I love that the cheeky fantail who normally hops and skips around people, is surrounded by lots of cheerful flying birds.
I love that many of the fabrics have a feather-like quality to them.
I just wish that they were a bit brighter and less subdued/ old fashioned looking.
Then just as I had almost finished piecing the fantail, I received a very polite email from Leonie (one of my pattern testers) asking whether I found someone else to test the fantail?
A quick check of my emails showed that I hadn't sent the pattern to my other tester either (double oops!)
There will be a slight delay while I get my act together and do what I was supposed to do... Have you done anything equally dozey recently?
