Image by Julia Rothman
Julia Rothman changed my lifeI spent most of today breaking my brain trying to work out how to do a very simple repeat design (thanks so much to Wendren for your kind help).
I was despairing at my ineptitude, thinking I’d never manage any kind of complex repeat, and then I flipped to Design*Sponge, where Julia Rothman is guest blogging, and where she posted this amazing tutorial on how to make a repeat from a complicated image (the finished item pictured above)!
I think Julia just changed my life. Now, where are my scissors?
PS: Emma wants to know how cold it really gets in South Africa. Truth be told, and especially by Swedish standards, it’s not that cold at all – it’s been about 14 degrees C today. But it’s wet and it’s windy in Cape Town, and we’re really bad at insulating our homes down here, so it’s just as cold inside as it is outside. Also, we’re going through a nationwide electricity crisis, so I’m too scared to turn the heater on in case the whole country plunges into darkness. Yuk.
