SNEAK PEEK/ FLIGHTS OF FANCY FABRICS






I so hope you are all satisfied with what I'm showing you. Keep in mind anything can change!
Whew, what a whirlwind the last few days have brought my way. The strikeoffs didn't arrive til after work last Friday. I started Saturday and didn't finish until Monday just in time to overnite my color corrections off to Michael Miller Fabrics. I was slow, I know, but I really had very little knowledge on how to go about the task. Sandi Henderson was so kind as to help once again and Jennifer came in to help on Sunday, as well.
So today I was happy to finally just play with the small pieces I had, and try to envision what I might do with them. But, alas, Kathy called and asked me to overnite the fabrics to them. Jennifer and I have very quickly snapped some shots before we had to box everything up and kiss it all goodbye for the moment.
This is not the only project we have going on right now. Oh no, this is the very busy time of year for designing new products, photography, new catalogs, price sheets, packing and sending crates, shows and filling orders. And I wondered what I'd do with myself when the kids left home!!!
Thank you all for your kind comments and interest. I'd love to hear your thoughts on what you think about the fabrics. Lots more where that came from. Go easy, it's my first try at this fabric thing. Also, colors on several pieces are off and hopefully will come back much better on the next round.
Unfortunately, my Studio reveal is delayed. Woodrow is getting impatient with me, as I'm sure you must be. Hopefully, worth the wait???
