I have so much to tell you that I wish you could stop over for sweet tea and these yummy St. Patrick’s Day cookies with extra sprinkles I just got at the grocery store.
We have so many things to discuss.
Like that I just got a new coat of purple fingernail polish and I wanted to make a craft video, except I realized my hands were little and my fingers were really stubby and maybe I should hire a hand model instead.
Or that the daffodils are coming up all over the yard.
Or that Sunday night was sad television watching. Masterpiece tried with a tribute to Downton Abbey, but it just wasn’t the same. Now I’m counting the minutes until June and Poldark the second season.
Or that today is National Pi Day. The 3.14 kind, not the one with the flaky crust.
Or that I’m about to launch my second fabric line.
And it’s all about the blue and white.
The first fabric line launched at the beginning of the year and it’s called Simply Eclectic.
It’s available online and in stores all across the country.
You can see a list of stores and all the fabrics in the line here.
It’s doing really well and it’s currently in its second printing.
I love the colors and patterns and geometric lines of Simply Eclectic, but my heart wanted something a little more farmhouse.
Enter the new fabric line.
Guess what it’s called?
It’s scheduled to be in stores by the end of the year.
And I’m headed to quilt/fabric market next month to promote it.
I love the stripes with the floral with the tiny thistle pattern.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the patterns.
We even added thistles to the group.
I love how the different patterns and scale of the florals layer easily.
We also added some of the patterns in coral and teal.
That large floral is so pretty.
There’s also coral stripes and teal birds to layer into this grouping.
Yesterday I sewed up a table setting.
I made a runner and place mats and napkins and chair covers.
And added a little sweet tea to the table.
And in super exciting news, I have a few appearances scheduled for the fabric.
You can see them on my event calendar here.
I’m going to be in Paducah, Kentucky for the quilt show and in a couple of weeks I’m going to be traveling to Texas for another party in downtown McKinney.
If you are in the area, I would love to meet you!
We are having giveaways and patterns and home decor and DIY ideas.
And a food truck.
I’ll be the one with purple nails wearing red lipstick and drinking sweet tea.
PS I’d love to schedule an appearance in your area, too! Just e-mail me if you want to set one up.
PPS Have a day as amazing as you are.
