Spring 2012 Color Swatches

One big change I am making at The Crazy Elephant this spring is to do large runs of fewer colors. It means that you will be able to get larger quantity of the fabric colors you love and there will be fabric on hand for custom orders as well. Up until now I would buy a very small amount of a fabric and sewit all up to list. The problem is that in the last couple of months I have had many requests for custom orders out of fabrics that are no longer available. I will still pop in a few randoms from time to time but the color swatches below are my spring colors and are available for custom orders. There are 16 and I will post in the comments when one is no longer available.
Love and Peace, Aqua Clouds, Red Clouds, Pirate Sketches

Tan Clouds, Craftaholic, Tea Party, Magenta Clouds

Green Dots, Toon Frog, Toads on Blue, Lime Clouds

Blue Dots, Pink Dots, Blue Clouds, Biking Monkeys

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
