Plaids have proven to be popular on Spoonflower. French blue is a smokey grey-blue. I brightened it up and added contrast with the crisp white windowpane plaid. Our assignment this week is French Country Table Linens. I am again taking the minimalistic route. I know it won’t put me in the top 60, but necessity won out.
Peaceful? Perky? Poised? Pleasant? Polished? 😆
Sunny Sage placed at #838 out of 1506 with 25 Votes. That is just over 55%. Boggles my mind. That so few votes are anywhere near the halfway mark. 🤔😆 Woo Who!! I am so thankful for your votes and support!
Voting is now open for French Blue Plaid until the 11th. Thanks so much lifting me up! (From the bottom of the list, 😆)
I am thinking about friends, that had a horrible couple of days. All is well now, but they are in my thoughts, and prayers. Thinking of you too! And praying all is well in your neck of the woods!

Spoonflower is shrinking this week. We ‘re going ditzy! A ditzy pattern design is one that is small scale and random. A tossed pattern that is non-directional. They do not need to be matched up, and that saves on wasted fabric. They are great for clothing and quilting. The pears in my design are about 1 inch squared. Many ditzy patterns are even smaller.
Ditzy patterns have never lost popularity. In the early 1900’s, feed sacks were made from a light cotton material. Resourceful women were using them for towels and to make clothing for the family. Companies soon took notice, and started using ditsy prints on their flour sacks. Flour sack dresses were a staple during the depression in the 30’s.
Voting is now open. There are over 1200 entries again, so grab a cuppa. 🙂 There are quite a few pear designs, I voted for several of them. Thank you for taking the time. One of these days I will make the top 60. Fingers crossed. Haha. Hey, gotta have goals, right? Making the top for me, would mean that my skills have improved. So I will keep working at it. ;o)
Deco Diamond placed at 777 of 1276 entries with 26 votes. That’s about at the 60% range. I thought it would be lower. I went against the grain, hoping it might pay off. I knew there would be lots of scallop entries. You can see in the top 69, almost all of them were some form of a scallop.
So grateful for your votes! Thank you for taking the time. 1276 is a lot of entries to go through.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal and don’t quit until you attain it. When you do attain it, set another goal, and don’t quit until you reach it. Never quit. Bear Bryant
The great danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark. Michelangelo
