On Craftsy and Revisiting an Old Favorite

February 6, 2012

My Kitchen Window

My Kitchen Window, now available through Craftsy!

I’ve spent quite a bit of time the last couple of days enjoy the creative bounty that is Craftsy! After lurking for months, I finally dived in and joined up.

And what a wonderful world it is!

I am in the process of making all of my shop patterns, as well as select free patterns, available as PDF instant download through my spiffy new Craftsy shop. Crafts makes for safe, simple shopping from a variety of independence artisans.

While adding patterns to Craftsy, I have been revisiting many old friends.

My Kitchen Window is one of my oldest paper pieced designs, and it was the first pattern I re-drafted when I started working on patterns to sell.

The original was designed many years ago for my mother-in-law, Carol, based on a piece of stained glass she made for us when we first moved to Austin.

Carol's Stained Glass Wall Hanging

The original piece was early days in my designing career. The revamped pattern is much, much simpler and easier to piece!

The inspiration.

While posting this pattern today, I realized the pattern could use a  few updates. Since the original pattern was designed entirely in Photoshop, I decided to play with it in EQ7 and see what I could do with different fabrics.

The first one uses the same color scheme as the actual quilt and stained glass.

How fun is it in blue and yellow? I might have to make this one!

I already want to call this one clown kitchen, because, WOW, those are some wild colors together. Fun, but wild!

    Hi, your old page on the .org web site is redirecting to the wrong page…Sewhoooked.com instead of Sewhooked.com…………here is the page I followed that redirected incorrectly:

    Don’t know if you can do anything about it or not but you are probably loosing some traffic………..
