I see over at the Minick and Simpson blog that Laurie is apologizing for taking such a long blog break.
She had not blogged for EIGHT days. Oh my they really make me look bad. But I have to believe if you are still following my blog you have come to accept the fact that I am a once a month blogger. I try for once every two weeks….sigh….but time just gets away.
I certainly have not been sitting here idle.
I have been crazy busy creating new product for you to buy.
In fact when I came to work this morning this is what my calendar said.
I am now caught up.
(With the calendar part - not my todo list.)
Here are some of the things that have been keeping me busy.
I designed my 2012 Christmas line.
I didn't get a picture of the panel but it consists
of 8 Christmas motifs set on a music note background.
Made Reindeer Games quilts -
my seamstresses helped me with this one.
Wrote, proofed, printed, bagged patterns for Reindeer Games Quilts.
A pattern for 4 Christmas place mats.
#527 Eat. Drink. Be Merry
This year it was decided that I would do a 20 piece Halloween
and a 20 piece Fall line of fabric.
Normally I do a 40 piece group of either Fall or Halloween.
As you can see I originally named it Fun-omenal Fall
but it was decided that Phenomenal Fall and Fun-omenal Fall
would be too confusing.
We proofed, printed, collated, spiral bound
and shipped the Easy Peasy Books.
We are selling the little wooden flower pots and some spools
needed for some of the projects in this book.
Go to my website and check it out under Supplies.
The bowl that these tomatoes are sitting in
is actually a quarter cup measuring cup.
So the tomatoes are pretty little.
Find the instructions for these mini tomatoes
in the Easy Peasy book.
Remember when I blog about this line
and I stated that you would have a hard time
piecing the panel into a quilt.
This is why.
The panel for this line is actually a pre-printed apron.
The apron comes in blue or black.
I am now computer generating quilts using this fabric.
I must confess… I had help doing many of the above things.
Thanks to a great staff. I could never do all of this without them
And the last item under new business is the Moda Country Fair Blog Hop.
Myself and 26 other Moda designers will be
blogging starting Tuesday September 6th.
I will be the first blogger.
All of us have designed a small project for you to make.
It should be fun.
Come join use on Tuesday September 6th.
Remember staying busy is better than sitting idle.
From my heart,
