When joining a swap on flickr, it’s the usual protocol to make a mosaic of photos you love to give your swap partner ideas about what to make for you. This really helps a lot– in the last swap I did I went back to my partner’s mosaic a number of times to see if my ideas were on the right track! For the most recent swap I joined, “for the love of solids,” I put together this mosaic. I love seeing what other people’s favorites are on flickr, and here is a glimpse into mine! (If you want to see more like this, check out the for the love of solids group, there are a ton to peruse!).

Nicey Jane Chair

Before Thanksgiving, I wrote a post about a chair I had refinished. I had chosen one of my favorite Nicey Jane fabrics from Heather Bailey for the cushion (the lindy leaf in red), and I was so happy with how bright and crisp the chair turned out. It definitely brightens up my work area! I added some pictures of the chair to a group of Nicey Jane projects on flickr, and I was so surprised a few days later to see that I had a comment on the photo– from THE Heather Bailey!! I couldn’t believe that SHE had looked at and commented on MY photo! It was such a little bright spot in my week, I was so excited knowing that she had liked what I had done with the fabric she designed.

Here’s the picture, and you can click on it to go to flickr to see Heather’s comment or more photos of the chair and other projects!
