Thanks for your lovely comment Tina - I really appreciate it, I worked so hard on that gradient... but in the end what worked was a happy accident... it so often happens with me!

Wow, this is so elegant! I love the magpie and the gradient is perfect!
Thanks so much for your great comments Lori! I was so happy to read them this morning! I'm considering this for a bedcover, and still trying to get a feeling for the scale, but I think I've got that gradient working perfectly now, as you say (and thank you so much for this phrase!): Magpie Ascension.

I just love this design! Bold and graceful. The sky color is so spot on and the white highlight is brilliant! Magpie Ascension ; )
Printed on the new Organic Cotton Knit Ultra - 8 x 8" swatch printed at 562 ppi.

Happy late birthday Su! Besides the great sale, hope is was full of love and goodies.
!!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SU !!!!!!
How fitting that this most, beautiful, sociable and adaptive bird should reappear on this special day.
Auspicious omen for the coming year.
I don't normally do this, but...: it was my birthday yesterday and a buyer with oodles of great taste and timing (!!) bought a couple of yards of this, one of my relatively early fabric designs - it was just the best birthday present ever! Thank you so much, made my day!
Phoebe thanks for the feedback: how old is your daughter? - I'm trying to picture this as a skirt on her. (My husband wants a bed cover... I'm still trying to make a decision...)

I think this would make an adorable skirt for my daughter.
