My camnesia from the Chocolat weekend extended even to forgetting to take a good picture of the model, although I did get a couple of extreme closeups to help my poor brain try and figure out what people who can actually sew would make of the excellent directions. Like this one:
To make up for the lack of Chocolat pictures, I thought I'd share a few pictures of some of Jackie's other class pieces that she had on display. This is Ebony and Ivory, which is gorgeous but looks terrifying to sew together.
AND LOOK AT THE PANSY PINKEEP.
LOOK WHAT IT DOES.
So, I want to take that class, a little, maybe.
Anyway! I did purchase a good bit. The first day, it seemed like I was going to be so restrained.
Teresa gave me. I actually already had the Belle Soie for the Rovaris pattern, but I bought another skein at The Attic because the color was at least 186% more awesome than the skein I had.
Then I went totally crazy and picked out Dinky Dyes and Gloriana silk for Cirque des Cercles.
Annette, and then we started in on the fabric. I kept saying, "Darker. Darker!" And finally someone pulled out this beautiful fabric (I can't remember if it was Annette or Teresa!) So what do you think? How crazy am I?? I'm thinking there are enough floral motifs in here to qualify for Jardin January... =)
