220:Christmas in April….
Okay so the Easter decorations are still out, and there are apple blossoms on the trees up front, but I am working on this:
Okay so does anyone else find this selvedge snippet funny?? I think I must frame this somewhere it makes me laugh so much….but that is probably only funny to textile geeks like me (and you if you think its funny too, I don’t require that you do, just so you know) (oh, and the Robot Cake sketch…that’s for a certain fabric/quilt designer) subtle, huh? This said designer also blogged about the video that has totally captivated me all week….will take a lot to top this…
This Christmas quilt is going to be for a magazine this fall, so I can’t show much more than this on it, but I am thoroughly enjoying these Michael Miller Christmas prints…while I was in the studio today, I thought about this postcard I have from way back in college in the early 80’s….
And truth be told, I am not just working on the above Christmas quilt, but I also working on this pink/grey/yellow number for Robert Kaufman Fabrics for Quilt Market coming up….you can see bits of it here mixed with the Christmas strips….
and waiting in the wings is this project for Free Spirit…..
okay, so today I am just so swamped I can’t think straight….and yeah, I didn’t throw the links in for the fabric companies…you’re smart, you can go Bing it or Google it or something like that…
I am still getting over the fact that the postcard mentioned above is almost 30 years old….but I am sure in that cases, that I couldn’t have been older than 3 when I picked it up in college……. sigh
Gotta get back to the studio…I am think Deck the Halls music will be in order tonite….
maybe next post, I will get the Easter pictures posted that are sitting on my desktop….maybe…
Keep Happy Peeps, Keep Sewing!!
Scott (that’s me!)
