I just wanted to thank everybody for such a warm welcome to blogland. It really is a magical place that you don't know is there until you find it. Then you wonder how you ever got along without it. You have showered me with emails and left such lovely comments... a girl could get addicted to this! I am sorry if I haven't had a chance to respond to all your emails or comments yet. I've been answering a few at a time, especially all the emails.
This week has been one of those deadline weeks for me that I know other designers have blogged about in graphic detail. I have to tell you that although I don't enjoy the anxiety that usually surrounds this time, I do work well under pressure and so I have gotten an unbelievable amount of stuff done in a rather short period of time [the deadlines & all the little worker bees who have been working as hard as I have, thank yoiu].
I have just put on the final borders for the last quilt going to the quilters & believe it or not, I am feeling a certain amount of peace. Well, I'm sure that will pass tomorrow when I look to see what else still has to be done, but until then..... I'm basking in it.
In addition to finishing up quilts and working on fabric lines, I have been composing and editing the next edition of Fresh Vintage. I have been finding such wonderful vintage images and not all of them made it into Fresh Vintage, so I'm posting a few of them here. I will add more tomorrow. They are currently making me very happy.
Now if I could just design a fabric line around each and every one of them, I would be a happy girl.
By the way, what's up with mushrooms these days, mushrooms are everywhere. Don't get me wrong, I love my
fungus as much as the next gal, but there's something a foot...
Speaking of Fresh Vintage.. in each issue I add a recipe from my archives or one given to me by one of my students or customers but this time I am stumped for something simple and homey- a dessert or a fun summer salad. I am enlisting your help in finding something good for the next issue!!
I would really love it if you would comment about it or email and tell me what it is. If I think it might work, I will contact you for the actual recipe. Please, please, save my recipe-less butt. Anything with figs would be extra fun.... hey Monica, are you out there? Anything with figs?
