When I go to Florida annually, I always hope I’ll see lovely exotic beasties- rare ones- like the divine speckled Coco!
Todays post features sewists who have been on our Jungle Safari every year- Cari brings us our 2nd feline of the day- Jacaranda Jungle Style!
Katie– you are fierce today! Where is Myra’s matching outfit?
Leila– sniff, sniff- when I think of how far you have come in your animal print odyssey….no- I won’t show the picture- but an intrepid reader could possibly find it themselves in the 1st year coverage! Wonderful Shoe post, by the way!
Over at the Fabricmart blog- Kathy is aboput to set a new land speed record in a very motivating animal print!
Dawn– your Ottobre is sparkly and growly- fab! Welcome to the menagerie.
Ruth– you are like Jane for me- dropped in the jungle and already running the show!
Now a little something from me- Vogue 9092.The envelope pic doesn’t show my view- so no pic for you! You are forced to just let mine speak for Vogue! Scary! Trying the natural light photos again- very flattering to Helmutt, right?
It’s not in animal print but I keep seeing a Parrot wear it- does that count? I’ve been gawking at this pattern for weeks now- finally fabricmart brought me just the thing- a sort of homespun lineny stripey thing. I’m still being cautious in my buying- trying to find neutrals and subtles to work with orphan pieces I own. So of course I immediately make a stand alone piece. But I have enough left for a top to match a pair of pants I’m trying. Yup, I’m trying pants again. Godspeed, little sewing machine- the cursing will start soon! Now today it’s dress in focus or Anne in focus- I chose dress- you may thank me!
It felt very conservative- it reminds me of my favorite Burda tunic go-to dresses I love so much. I decided to make the center front skirt panel horizontal for a little fun effect. Super fun, right? I skipped the back zip again- pyramid shaped body- I can slither into just about anything without a zip!
Hmm….I feel like I’m cheating posting this in a Jungle January post. Well, perhaps, I should throw on the matching wrap.
Look at my fabulous Anne quilt- look, I doesn’t care what the pattern may be called by others, it’s the Anne quilt, thankyouverymuch! The quilting Cleasbys made it for me- here’s a secret peak into their studio:
I was so touched- my grinchy heart expanded 3 sizes- not enough to let the pups put even a toe on it, but still- I’m a work in progress.
Now remember- if you see some gorgeous animals on the net- give me a shout!
