I'm DIVING IN!
I am so excited to show you my new pattern. Diving is one of my favorite olympic sports to watch. I admire swimmers very much, probably because water and I do not get along well. I had to do a little study about diving to get it right..... three tries later here it is!
This is a wall hanging, about 16"x 38" in size. It is such a fun project. I love bringing my drawings to life, and this one was no exception.
This diving girl was inspired by pictures of the early 20th century. The 20's-50's are so intriguing to me. I am currently redecorating my living room in a cottage/beach theme. I designed this wall hanging to go in there. I plan to add a beach ball pillow, and maybe some shells, or star fish pillows to my window seat to compliment this wall hanging.
The saying on this wall hanging reads
"Dive in...take a swim. Visit Seaside Resort." I love the northern coast of Oregon. Seaside is one of my favorite places to go. It is such a whimsical town, and reminds me of a carnival for some reason. The last time I was there I had the girls picture taken in old fashioned beach attire, it is fun to see how big they have gotten since the last picture when compared to their new one. It was picture perfect this summer, and I can't wait to go back for spring market next year. I am counting the days!
Until then, I hope you will join me in creating this wonderful wall hanging. The pattern is $8 and is available on my website. (chitterchatterdesigns.com)
