Phew! What a whirlwind I've been going through. Yesterday my husband was saying how it seems like we're always in the midst of big "push" to get something done. That's not exactly true, but it sure does feel like it lately.
Anyway, I've been quite busy designing, planning, sewing etc for Theo's birthday. He's two today! (well, yesterday by the time I get this post up). I'll have lots of details of the whole construction-themed shindig soonish. I'm playing catch-up with pictures right now.
And in the midst of that we all picked up and flew to FL for 2 nights for my Grandmother's funeral. It was actually really nice to see all my extended family (my dad is 1 of 8 kids!) but it was quite a bit of dragging the kids all over the place and we got back the night before the party...so now you know why I'm exhausted...
But I did promise you a closer look at Timber (for Windham Fabrics) and here it is in three colorways:
Prints clockwise from top left: Gingko in Sea Glass, Dogwood in River, Pear in Mist, Magnolia in River, Bamboo in Sea Glass, Apple in Mist, Willow in Mist, Maple in River
Prints clockwise from top left: Gingko in Malibu, Dogwood in Malibu, Pear in Sugar Plum, Magnolia in Sugar Plum, Bamboo in Sugar Plum, Apple in Sienna, Willow in River, Maple in Sugar Plum
Prints clockwise from top left: Gingko in Java, Dogwood in Sienna, Magnolia in Sweetgrass, Bamboo in Java, Maple in Sweetgrass, Gingko in Sienna, Maple in Java, Willow in Sweetgrass, Pear in Sienna
I must say, the thing I'm the most excited about is to see what you all make with your fabric. Promise me you'll send me lots of pictures, k?
And I spoke a little too soon before, I don't think the fabric will be hitting the stores much before the new year. But I already know of two places that have ordered the whole line. One of my favorite quilt shops on Cape Cod, Tumbleweed Quilts, and a great online store (and awesome new friend), Fabritopia. If you're a store owner and you're ordering the whole line, let me know and I'll post a big list or something so everyone can find you!
I can't thank you all enough for your kind words on my last post. It seems everyone believed in me even before I did. I wish I could email you all back personally, but it just ain't gonna happen right now. But I'll be back on track soon...
