Happy New Year!
A little late – I know. It’s only day 17 and I am already behind! January is just flying by and I am not getting nearly enough done. I haven’t blogged for a month and a few of you have nicely emailed to find out if all is okay. Everything is going fine, but I didn’t have any help with Carter over Christmas break and now the babysitter has been in Hawaii for 2 weeks (lucky girl!). When she is here, it is the only time I get to be in the studio. Carter has gotten too busy and bent on destruction to even bring him in the studio. It is pretty cute when he tries to come in though. He yells “Sew!, Sew!, Sew!” and immediately started emptying the cutting table of all the rulers. I’m sure all the drawers in the sewing cabinet would be next. Carter is napping now, so instead of answering emails and shipping orders like I usually do when he naps, I am getting a blog post done first!
I have something new to share that I started last summer. It’s a fabric line for all the puppy loving little boys out there.
The line is a nice mix of dots, geometric and puppy themed prints. (The following images of the prints are taken from the sales card)
There is also a panel-type print that would work well as a focal print or a cute backing.
As soon as I get some strike-offs I will share those as well, as the sales card never quite does the fabric justice. There is something about holding the actual fabric in your hand, that just brings everything it to life.
Henry Glass also had a free pattern designed for the line – to help give you an idea of how the line works up. I love the little paw prints running across the quilt. Nothing says puppy like paw prints across your floor (or quilt).
The fabric line is hitting the ground with the sales reps this month – so shop owners – I hope you will ask your reps to see the sales card! For all you non-shop owners, the fabric will be in stores this summer. It always feels like a long wait, but it helps brighten this cold winter day to know that something fun is in the works for summer.
This line is in memory of our dog Daisy – and in hopes that Carter will love his own little puppy again some day soon.
