      Thank you! I was out looking for a printed lining fabric and couldn’t find one so I decided to line it with quilting cotton:)

    The more I see the Lady Grey, the more I wish I would have done this pattern for the sew-along… You did an amazing job! And the gnomes are so so so cute!

    How cheeky. You could be in a terrible meeting at work, and all you would keep thinking is “there are gnomes in here.” Haha! I love it!
