Speaking of the Beautifully Sewn– we have a Maria of Denmark Kristen Kimono is a print that makes me giddy…and you know I love to be giddy! Later we will even see Maria herself! 20130122_115150

Do you do Bobbins&Whimsy? Oh you must- she’s a treat- check out her new clutch! She beat the machine to do this one for us! zebra-clutch

I believe that animal print is suitable for all occasions and so does MariaDenmark! I think cheetah totally says ‘christening!’, wedding, whatever! 1

Dibulous thought that she could post this on Pattern Review without the jungle tracker spotting it- oh, no! Check out this tunic:8407082681_5b50124f52_b

How about a little vintage flair of the faux fur variety? Tulle and Tweed brings us a Deanna Durbin worthy collar- complete with cat-teasers! SONY DSC

I love when a whole family comes together for the greater good….of animal print! Sewing for Fun got everyone working the stripey-ness! I’m glad she did- My Mother¬† wants this pattern, so now I can show her the best version yet! side-2blomst

Velo– do you dream in animal print? I just know that you do! snake-pants2

Now I won’t reveal how cool this is- go see SewForwards blog- cuz the kittty ain’t talking! watching-over-the-technique

Tomorrow we will pause the jungle Jeep for the Wellington Pattern Pyramid drawing live in our remote location! Perhaps some animal print fabric may find its way into that bundle- as it does sometimes! There is still time to throw your name in the ring! silent leo

Wellington Pattern Pryamid Arrival


Upon these noble shores a package has arrived from the most Noble of Magpies! Gees I love winning stuff! It totally appeals to my spoiled rotten nature! babypeggyphoto3

Check out the loot! DSC08431

Pretty snazzy,eh? My mind is spinning. I know, I KNOW I’m supposed to pick one and then let everyone else get a chance to win, but…..I’m lousy with numbers….I took 2. DSC08434

But I’m selfish. It’s how I roll. I have it on best authority that it IS all about me. I asked my Mom. She said so.

Here is what I’ve added: DSC08436

Ok, so you know what you got to do, right? You need to let me know in the comments in haiku or free verse just which of these you would like to cherish as your very own and then a winner will be chosen by cartoon blue birds on the final day of the festival of St Eustaces and I shall forward the loot to thee. Thats January 26th by my Etruscan calendar. Standard Pyramid rules do apply- you must have a blog (for posting your own leg of the journey) and you must leave me a thoughtful, flattering comment about me or the patterns you are eager to embrace as your very own.

On your mark? Go!
