Well, the sun is out today, the temps are slowly warming up and I am hoping to get out into the garden later today to get some flowers potted up and to do a general Spring cleanup out there. Before I head out to get some work done, I just wanted to quickly share some images of a few things I have been working on. As usual, I have way too many things going at once. I have settled on the fact that this is just how I work. I really need to have a few things going at once. My challenge (and I have been good so far these last few months) is setting deadlines for completion of things so everything does not end up in the UFO pile. I am sure there are some out there that can relate, right. :)
Anyway, let's start. First up, look at this happy fabric!
When the fabric rep pulled out this print, I could not help but smile. It reminded me instantly of my girl. Look at those long, lanky limps and that sweet smile. She even wears here hair the same way and has those same curls. Leah does not have a dog, like in one of the images, but man, does she want one badly!!! Our 16 year old cat would not be happy about adding a dog to the family, though. I am working on some things for Leah's room, and also there will be loads of fun items on the new website featuring this print. I have it in another color way (pink & purple), but I have not cut into that just yet. I thought the pink & purple would be for Leah, since those are her favorite colors, but she insisted on this color way when she saw it. It is great for me, because it matches with lots of things already in her room. :)
Next up are some of the new totes that I am making.
I still have some threads to snip, some buttons to sew on and some other hand embellishing to do. I'll be sitting with this lot tonight while watching a movie with my better half. :) These will be on the new website, and also I am hoping the shops I'll be meeting with in 2 weeks will take some to sell. I am really loving this particular print below. Even though the base is brown, the colors are bright enough that I think they work great for Spring/Summer.
And I pulled out some of these Marimeko prints that I have been hoarding for years! Don't these just scream summer?
And here are a couple other fun combinations.
I'll be announcing the date for the launch of the new site soon. I need to get a few more things finished up so I can have a great launch!
Okay, wishing you all a super happy day. Thanks so much for stopping by. Oh, one more thing, I am remembering I forgot to celebrate my 1 year blog anniversary. And I still need to fulfill my end of a Pay It Forward thing I won on Ravenhill's blog. So in the next few weeks, well probably in May, I'll be doing some fun giveaways again...Maybe a website launch party? I have not done anything in a while, so I'll think of some good, fun stuff to do. So keep a lookout for that.
See you sooner than later...
