Alexandra Burke - Official Single - 'Hallelujah'

I saw this video and I cried like a baby. Maybe I am especially touched by musical talent...but honestly, it is so amazing when a human being can sing like an angel. I wish I could. It makes me feel like there is hope for mankind. Just WOW!
Apparently you have to go to Youtube to see it.

This is what I awoke to this morning. Maybe I'm in another dimension or something, but...isn't it May 24th??? My poor potted flowers!

So much for the barbeque we were going to have tonight...I think instead we will have stew and cornbread and maybe some Christmas cookies for dessert. What's even weirder is it's supposed to be 70 degrees tomorrow, and 80 on Wednesday! That's why I am so confused. I think Utah is one of the few places where you can go snow skiing and water skiing on the same weekend.

Anyway...market was wonderful! (I kinda forgot to mention I was going...) I have some great pictures to share with you, and I will be posting all about it in the very near future. I didn't exhibit this time, and I'm not gonna lie, it was so nice to just cruise around with Lucy and Chelsea and see what everyone else was doing for a change! The booths were first class, and the fabrics and patterns were FABULOUS! There were some changes with designers moving around...I even have a little announcement to make of my own, but not yet.

First I need to unpack and do my laundry, among other things:)

Just in Time to Spoil My Day...Bohemian Bag DRAMA

Hello Fellow Blogworld friends,

I have just had an extremely upsetting realization that the new printing of my Bohemian Bag pattern has a very unfortunate problem. It seems that when I was pasting the template into the instruction document, I didn't have it at the right resolution, so therefore it is really, REALLY SMALL! HOW I didn't catch it then I will never know. But now that many of these patterns have been sent out into the world, and some folks have already found that indeed there is a problem, I suppose it is just too late to make everything right entirely.

HOWEVER...I am in the immediate process of reprinting the template, and will have it up here on my blog as soon as I can to download. In the meantime, if you have purchased one of the Bohemian Bag patterns in the last 3 months, please email me: Lilatuellerdesigns@gmail.com, and I will send you the new template page as soon as I have it.

In fact...here are the dimensions for you right now, so you can have them to create your own template for this bag, if you like.

It is shaped like a triangle, with both long sides the same length, and the top is cut off.
Here is a picture: Click on it to see it bigger.The way I do it is I make a rectangle 4 1/2" x 13" on heavy paper or template plastic. Then I subtract 1" from each corner at the top edge and connect those points to the bottom corners. Now it is 2 1/2" wide at the top, and 4 1/2" wide at the bottom. That's it. Then cut it out and trace around it on your fabric to cut your pieces.

I am so sorry about this, I really am. It's just about the worst thing that can happen to a pattern designer. Just mortifying.

My sincere apologies to everyone affected! Just email me...we can talk.
