This is the quilting design that the fabulous Debbie Thornton at Prairie Queens chose for the quilt I made for my favorite quilt celebrity Rock Star. Don't you love the design of high heeled pumps on the fabric Objects of Desire? OMG, this quilt is seriously adorable. I can't say too much more about it now, but this is going to be part of a very Hot Project for a major quilt publishing company. Great things are worth waiting for! Trust me on this one girls.
I finished my other stunt sewing project for Fig Tree and got the top Priority Mailed yesterday. Very tight deadline on that one, whew! Precision Piecing. Now the quilter has the tight deadline, not me! This fabric line, Mill House Inn, designed by Joanna Figuera will be out sometime late this summer I am guessing. It has some wonderful tones of bittersweet, coral, brown, cool greens and soft blues. You will love this group, every single piece of it, so start saving your pennies so you can buy a bundle! Check out her blog, she has some peeks of it.
Shingles are almost gone, you have to look hard to see where they were. I win the prize for the mildest case ever (vaccine induced). But thank goodness for cover up. I look like a fairly normal person, if you don't notice the crazed look in my eyes. Which was largely brought on by major glitches with PayPal yesterday. They were mainly self-induced I guess, but what a mess I made of things. First off, I neglected to check Inventory Control, which meant that folks were not told if an item had sold when they placed their order. I managed to sell Vintage Reserve twice and Red Hats three times. My face is sure red over that one. How embarrassing. There goes my cred as a good merchant. I thought I had that figured out after some tinkering, but then when anyone went to buy something they were told it was sold out, even if it wasn't. Good grief. Nothing was selling, so I marked down all the prices. (big laugh on me). Some good souls alerted me to the fact that things were amiss, and I was able to correct things and get it all sold. Thank you for your patronage and for your patience. I promise next week will be smoother and I will have more good stuff!
Hey, guess what? I am leaving for a retreat tomorrow!!!! We are going up to the monastery again, where they treat us like we are super special. (Which we are, just not everyone sees that right off the bat). Gettin' away from the stress and the dogs and the responsibilities of stunt sewing. I should have wonderful photos of all the gal's projects on Monday!
