The next in my plan to make fabrics for all of my nieces and nephews.
The siblings Lefleur, on a blustery day;
Were deciding together just how they should play.
The eldest Elias, to avoid further fighting,
Suggested an outing expressly for kiting.
"A splendid idea!" did young Isaac remark,
"Pip pip!" said small Sylvie, Let's away to the park!"
But once at the park their fine plans went athwart,
When a naughty old zephyr decided for sport,
To blow oh so hard to send them careening,
Across the whole globe ( that nasty old meanie)!
Elias went tumbling 'til in Bath he alighted.
With his wit and his charm they soon had him knighted.
Isaac sailed on 'til he landed in Thailand.
With grand plans for conquest he renamed it Myland.
And Sylvie, the lightest, flew quite round the Earth,
and came down a block from the town of her birth.
When they finally regrouped in nine months, or ten,
They said "What a lark! Let's do it again!"

Ooooh! Thank you so much, mme-emmapeel the pattern looks so lovely on that amazing skirt you have made. Thank you so much for showing your beautiful handiwork and I'm so glad your kiddo likes it!

So beautiful in the skirt - I can totally see the "little kite chaser" twirling and whirling! A beautiful and apt use of the pattern.
My little kite chaser loves this pattern. She is currently twirling and dancing while wearing this. She is begging to go outside to fly her kite. Thanks for creating such a delightful design.

so interesting & beautiful!
I have to "ditto" that, lovely artwork and story line! I love love love the background, so dreamy!
Such a gorgeous design, Cean. I always enjoy reading your descriptions, too. You have a way with words that is a brilliant match for your talent in the visual arts.
Thanks all! Mandollyn, good eye! This isn't a ditsy, but the contest description specifically mentioned that the contest was for small scale prints and not just ditsy, so I went ahead and drew something that I had in mind for a while and just scaled in small.

I really love this... you have fantastic art skills.
I am confused, however, how this is a "ditsy" style pattern...
wonderfull and so poetic!
Wow! This is amazing.. just beautiful!
Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments! This design is the next in my really slow developing series of fabrics devoted to my niece's and nephew's wild adventures ( all true stories, I swear). I'm glad to hear you all liked it!
What a wonderful design and lovely story.
This is so sweet, the story, the rhyme and the fabric is incredible, just stunning :)
Very beautifully done!
The story is wonderful and the design is lovely!
Great design. Great story! I agree with other comments - you should be writing (and illustrating) books!
splendid design, splendid story as well. I hope you do write that book - even if my kids are too old for it, I'm not and I will buy one!
This is fabulous!
so lovely and sweet cean! it makes a stunning pattern too!
Always love your drawing, charming illustration.
Wow this is awesome! I love the artwork. So curious what it's going to look like in print!
I would love to see this as a book so I could read it to my daughters. They would love it! (It's fabulous as fabric, too, of course!!!)
So so so good!!!!
Brilliant! Both story and illustration.
love it Cean, just wonderful! I am always amazed at how you get your traditional work to repeat flawlessly! A real treat!
Definitely need to put your stuff into a children's book.
Oh stars.... An entire fairytale and wonderland packed within a swatch-sized design.. Amazing.
Love the movement.
this is sooo brilliant and beatiful!!!! love the fact that the wind is made by a "lady blowing" :)
Oh, this design is the most charming of all.
Ooo... too lovely.
too, too fabulous.
oh Cean I'm in love with this....
I love the story you have for this. :)
